iPhone Player is a tiny and portable audio player that supports local tracks with the MP3 format. Its key feature consists of a GUI that resembles an iPhone device, making it a fun tool for Apple fans who want to listen to music in a familiar environment.
Easy deployment on your system
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and click it to run.
There's also the possibility of moving the program to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any workstation without prior installers.
An important factor to take into consideration is that iPhone Player does not add new entries to the Windows registry, Start menu or any other area of the hard drive. Moreover, leftover files are not kept on the disk after removing the tool.
Basic playback options provided
Loading MP3 songs into the playlist is done with the help of the drag-and-drop method, and you can insert as many tracks are you want.
iPhone Player enables users to jump to a particular song by writing part of the artist and song name in the top part of the screen. Plus, you can seek a position in the stream by moving a slider. A few options are available through the right-click menu, as you can make the frame stay on top or below all the other windows.
Far from being a pro
The audio player runs on a low-to-moderate amount of RAM, so it doesn't put a strain on system performance. However, iPhone Player has not been updated for a very long time, and it does not work properly on newer OS platforms; we were unsuccessful in our attempt to access some of its features (e.g. play radio channel).
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that iPhone Player is a fun application for Apple enthusiasts, but its usability only stretches as far as a few tries. It lacks support for advanced features, being far from providing most options you expect from a powerful media player.
