Avian Play is a music player for Windows Mobile. There’s nothing all that new about that. There are dozens, if not hundreds of media players for Windows Mobile. What makes Avian Play different is that it has a highly customizable user interface and the ability to use three different interfaces for three different types of audio files.

There’s a music interface, a podcast interface, and an internet radio screen.

This makes a lot of sense, since you probably don’t need all the same buttons when you’re listening to a streaming radio station as you do when you’re listening to an hour-long podcast. There’s also playlist support for internet radio stations with multiple URLs — something which is surprisingly absent from most playlist formats.

The app is skinnable simply by editing the images in the Skins folder and the settings in the skin.ni files.

Avian Play supports MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, and WAV audio files, as well as M3U, PLS, and AVPL playlist formats.
