Emacberry, the creator of FileScout, has once again gotten the creative wheels in motion. Not satisfied with the native BlackBerry Media Player, he compiled a list of what functions he wanted from a media application and then got to work. The result, TOMPlayer, [T]he[O]ther[M]ediaPlayer.
The UI is simple (it's the first version so cut him some slack) and easy to navigate. With TOMPlayer, you can open any existing playlist (you have to create the playlist with another application such as FileScout) and listen to your audio files. TOMPlayer stores the last active playlist & track so whenever you exit the application and return, TOMPlayer will resume playback from that exact spot. This makes it an ideal application for listening to AudioBooks or longer playlists. The application is also integrated into the BlackBerry Menu list. By selecting 'TOMP: SONG_TITLE_HERE', you can easily see what song you left off at and bring the application to the foreground to adjust volume and such.
TOMPlayer is available for FREE and works on devices running OS 4.3 or higher (including OS 7 devices). Feel free to leave comments/thoughts below or head on over to the forum post dedicated to the app.
