Apollo is a general purpose audio player for Windows
The interface of the program is minimalistic (since Apollo prefers to focus on functionality), so even beginners can easily play with Apollo.
You can import audio tracks by using only the file browser, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported.
So, you can create a playlist, pause and stop a song, play the next track and set the position in the song.
In the playlist you can check out the title, duration, bit rate, sample frequency rate, bit resolution, file size and ID3 tag version of each file.
In addition, you can enable loop and shuffle mode, import songs from a directory or link, add a random entry or another playlist, access Windows Explorer, generate an HTML playlist, view a frequency analyzer and file properties.
Furthermore, you can randomize the main playlist order, arrange songs, use a search function and view additional track information (e.g. copyright, original, private), and more.
The program takes up a low amount of system resources and worked smoothly during our tests. Apollo didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors. However, the interface desperately needs a makeover.
Also, there is no help file available and, since Apollo contains some pretty advanced settings, this could be a problem to beginners. Otherwise, we strongly recommend this tool.
