As time goes by, RealPlayer, which was widely used on almost everyone’s computer back to the 90’s, has been gradually faded away from people’s sight. Whether because of its own development prospect or competitions, until recently, RealPlayer comes back again. This most well-recognized media player giant RealNetworks Company has just released RealPlayer app for Andriod in hoping to distance himself from the destructive opinions that have historically surrounded its desktop counterpart. (Previously, we’ve talked about the Beta version)
Though with complicated functions, it is quite easy to operate. The app’s interface is simple with a clean, icon-based dashboard. All audio controls are placed at the center of the screen while icons for videos and photos at the bottom. Right on the dashboard, there are options for browsing Playlists, Albums, Genres, Artists, or Songs. At the first installation, it will automatically take inventory of the media on your device and populates its menus with your content, which make it possible for you to start your playing immediately.
"This is the media player that people want," said Scott Uomoto, SVP Consumer and Helix Divisions of RealNetworks. "It delivers on what RealNetworks does best: helping people simplify, connect to, and enjoy their digital media in the increasingly complex world of mobile media. We drew on the rich heritage of the RealPlayer media platform, which has close to 500 million installs over the last 2.5 years —with 190 million installs alone over the last 12 months— and is one of the most recognized brands in media players worldwide."
