The functionality of mobile phones has expanded beyond one’s imaginative capability.Nowadays mobile phones can do almost everything that a PC can do.The introduction of applications for mobile phones has brought about this change especially 3rd party software applications.
The audio galaxy app can be used to stream music from your computer. The main advantages of audio galaxy are that the application is free to download and use.The app can stream,skip any audio available without actually downloading them. The presence of such a facility saves lots of downloading time and will serve a better listening experience in the longer run.The app supports playlist too and shuffles the collection very well.The amount of space occupied by the server is very reasonable as the server is not written in java.
The interface of the app is very primitive and there is a dearth of options.The app provides support for mac and windows only. Linux users will not be able to use it(Blame it on lack of java). The bit rate support is also very minimal.
The subsonic app is similar to audio galaxy in functionality but differs in the way it provides the function.
This app provides support for mac,windows and Linux also.The user interface is very lively when compared with audio galaxy app.Multiple support for players are available with subsonic .The library in this app is very easy to browse and the client can preload songs for a hassle free playback.The app support offline playback too which is useful when the connection available is slow. Subsonic app provides clients the freedom to customize the cache size .The app supports playlists.
The app is free for 30days only and then you’ll have to ‘Donate’ to avail further services.The app uses lots of memory as it is written in java and the client cannot jump to other songs unless the content has been downloaded.
The Final word
Both the Audio galaxy and subsonic are strong competitors in the arena of Android audio apps.While subsonic’s interface is tad better than that of audio galaxy the feature set of both the apps are pretty same.It boils down to the preferences of the user.
