Hypoxia - All in one media player - 25 copies to be won!

By Michael Hepples on 26 Aug 2010 02:58 pm EDT

I refuse to use the native media players on my BlackBerry. They function well, but there are a few reasons I eschew them. One major gripe for me is having to use a different app for each type of media I want to play. I have tried a few different apps over the last while, trying to find a better fit for my needs, and have found Flipside to be a great music alternative, and I'm currently using Good Video Browser for my vids. The problem is the same though, I still need a different app for each type of media. Hypoxia aims to solve that problem, giving me a one-stop shop for all my media needs and putting all of the media on my device within easy reach. No more having to exit out of my music player to look at pics I have taken. The UI is simple and clean, and a fair number of options are available within the app, including the increasingly popular ability to tweet what I'm listening to. One very cool feature is the ability to stream my media to/from my PC (uses a separate server program, available from their website) allowing me to access my entire music and video library right on my device. The developer has also integrated notifications into the app, allowing you to preview incoming emails, SMS, etc without ever having to leave the application, so you can decide if you want to answer that text from your wife or wait until the song is done. The most exciting thing about this app for me is that it is fully skinnable. Those who want to can create their own skins for the app, allowing a huge customization option for those out there who feel the need to make everything unique to themselves. Available in the CB store for $7.99 for multiple devices.

Contest: I have 25 copies of Hypoxia to give away! Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

Hypoxia - All in one media player - 25 copies to be won!



Hopefully, this works on the Torch so when I win the second chance contest for the Torch, I'll get to use this app too.

i would love to win one of these since no one else has been able to come out with one that addresses my needs.


I really hope this is compatible with the 9800/Blackberry6 A lot of my podcasts are in m4a format and the built in player is playing it as a video which doesn't allow background playing.

In my attempt at using only one device for everything and at the same time being a Crackberry Addict, Media is where the problems arise.
I won't go into detail in this post as you have touched on most everything that I would mention.
Anyway, would love to give this app a try.

Is that a software volume control I see on the screenshot? My volume up button doesn't work any more on my 9700.

Finnaly can stop carrying my ipods with me and use by blackberry for my media, please would love to have a free copy of this. Thanks Crackberry another great contest, you guys are the best.

How does this work anyways? Are winners picked at random or does someone actually go through and read all the posts? Just curious.

Oh yes I want it! I just got my first cell phone that is supposed to do everything, I want all the bells and whistles I can get, so do a soon to be great grandma a favor and give her one.

Thank you

Mhhhh pues aunque me gusta mucho el reproductor nativo, habria que ver que tan bien se desempeña este

If what they are saying on their website is true, then this is the first app I've found that supports UPNP on a Blackberry - both as a renderer and server! For those of you with a home media network, this is really big news.

I wonder if the supported codecs are the same as the native player. I would still love to win a copy since the native player has A/V sync issues and doesn't stream.

Ha I was just looking to buy this yesterday what luck crackberry was having this giveaway...I would really love to win

...wanna try this out. I hate how everything gets screwed up if I want to look at pictures while listening to music. I'm not really sure why it's like that, but I'm sure others feel the same way.

With regard to ease of use, RIM needs some help. Compared to some other devices, their user interface is quite awkward, though I haven't seen the new 6.0 OS.

This is what I have been looking for. An all in one media player which looks great! Thank you for giving us a chance for this.

I am so tired of having to go through a bunch of different applications just to view a type of media. This one seems to be a good idea.

Wow! And here thought I was being too picky wanting something similar. I guess I'm not the only one. Geez I wish I was a developer. Anyway...
