Xion Audio Player Portable
Xion Portable is a program that you can use to play your favorite music files in a user-friendly environment.
Since installation is not required, you can simply place Xion on a removable device (like a USB flash drive), plug it into any computer and directly run its executable file. What's more important is the fact that your Windows registry keys will not be changed.
The interface of the application is clean, intuitive and eye-catching. You can import music from file or folder by using the file browser or "drag and drop" method.
So, you can use basic audio player functions, such as pause and stop, navigate back and forth within the track and adjust the volume.
But you can also create, sort and mix a playlist, use a search function, adjust the interface hue, as well as enable looping and shuffling mode.
In addition, you can add a URL (e.g. play radio), access a simple library, view cover art and song information (e.g. title, artist, album, comment), remove tags, enable Xion to stay on top of other applications, and more.
In the "Configuration" panel you can manage plugins, adjust the track scroll speed, enable crossfade between songs, set up an equalizer, reconfigure global hotkeys, select the output device, and more.
The audio player runs on a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, can automatically check for updates online, has an excellent response time and the sound quality of the tracks is very good. We haven't encountered any kind of issues during our tests.
All in all, Xion Portable comes with all the necessary and suffice elements for playing audio tracks and we highly recommend it to all users.
