Oh - there is one thing I would say about android audio players - There are a ton of players that are either time-limited trials, or feature limited trials, or spyware.  (Read the TOS, some of them collect your email address, location, home address, phone numbers you call, etc).  I recently searched for audio players, and specifically included things like "GPL" and "open source" in my searches, to find something that wasn't going to be an offensive pile of junk.  I settled on "Android Music Player" by JRTStudio.  It's a decent basic player, apache license.  The same guys produce Rocket Music Player, which has both a free and non-free version.  The free version is feature limited, but fine for most people (no lossless formats).  The non-free version is $4.  I opted to pay the $4, because I liked them producing Android Music Player, and I care about lossless audio.
