Who wants some free apps? You do? Cool. Read on.

I'm sure you've all heard of PowerAmp before. But for those who haven't, it's probably the most powerful, versatile, and customizable music player in the Play Store. And that's saying something, because there is no shortage of music players on there. So, what's so cool about it? The fact that it can do basically everything you could possibly want from a media player. That's a lot of stuff – just take a looksee.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

Told you it has a lot of features.

An app that you may not have heard of, however, is the newly released InDrive. This app comes from developer Code Sector, and is essentially a super-powered Car Home replacement. It too does a lot of stuff, and it even completely integrates with PowerAmp. That's rad.

1 2 1[5]

Trip computer features:
* Street address
* Speedometer (mph, km/h or knots)
* Heading
* Battery level
* Weather (Fahrenheit or Celsius)
* Odometer
* Time traveled (total / driving / stopped)
* Average speed (total / driving)
* Max speed
* Elevation
* Time of day

Startup options:
• Enable car mode (Force the phone into car mode like it had been placed in the car dock)
• Check GPS status (Open the location settings screen if GPS is disabled)
• Turn on Bluetooth
• Disable Wi-Fi
• Set media volume (Does not affect the ringtone volume)
• Set screen brightness (Will override the automatic brightness setting if necessary)

Other settings:
• Keep screen on (Prevent the screen from locking while the app is running)
• Disable auto rotation (Turn this option on when driving on bumpy roads)
• Turn on speakerphone
• Exit on undock

Look at all those features!

Normally, PowerAmp will set you back $4 and InDrive is $2. But we like for things to be free, so we have 20 licenses of each to give away. That'll save you a few bucks, anyway.

So, how do you get your name in the hat to win one of these? Easy: just answer one simple question in the comments below.

Tell us which app you want and your favorite feature of said app.

It's pretty imperative that you put both of those things in your comment, otherwise, we may not know which app you want. Plus, we like it when people follow the rules. So, make sure to do that. Now and forever.

The giveaway is open to users across the globe and begins now. It will run until Friday, January 4th at 11:59 PM PT. After that, we'll randomly pick some winners!

Good luck!

    PpowerAmp is my music player of choice and has been since my early smartphone days so I will have to say In-Drive, it has some really cool features but I think the most useful to me would be the Trip Computer features. Wish I would have had that back in Sept when I went to Calif.

    PowerAmp, because of the equalizers and the Stereo expansion feature. This is a big step up from the default Android media player.

  • Falconator

  • vhick

  • Periferian

    PowerAmp - it downloads missing cover art

  • osiris21a

    i have tons of old music so i need to be able to view in file/folder mode

  • Vik

    Well since the device on which I will use either of these apps is a Nexus 7 with no data capabilities, I would like PowerAmp... I barely use the N7 within my car because of the lack of WiFi connectivity. Also, I am trying to gradually move to using the N7 for my music instead of my phone. Having PowerAmp would definitely aid in making the switch. Oh and my favorite feature of PowerAmp? ...the 10 band equalizer. Although, the wide set of file formats that can be played is great too. And so is the fact that you can play songs from other folders as well as through your library. Something my Motorola Atrix has a hard time with. ...Thanks! And Happy New Year!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Star-Sizu/100000944071562 Star Sizu

    Indrive, feature seems what I need for a incar app.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

    I'd have to go with InDrive, besides, I already own PowerAmp.

    It's no one thing that makes it attractive, it's the assortment of powerful features that make it a great app.

  • Phil Hateon

    power amp because of its advanced equalizer.

  • Deltanite

    PowerAmp. Definitely for the Bass and Treble toggle as many other apps do not have it or even make it remotely accessible as this app.

  • Brian G

    InDrive, because it can do a lot of things at startup and I like that it was made with tasker app factory

  • John

    I don't mind winning a free license of PowerAmp pro!
    There obviously are a bunch of features for this seemingly dominant music player app, but I really wished I had a tag editor in my default music player. I also like the lite-DJ type settings you could mess around with to change the sound of your song, as it appears in the screenshots.

    Hopefully I win, but best of luck to all!


    PowerAmp.... its gooood looking... =)

  • Mie Mohd

    PowerAmp for overwhelming visual and audio customisation

  • JT

    PowerAmp: Love the customization, Bass and Treble adjustment.
    InDrive: Time traveled and that it integrates with PowerAmp.

  • Michael S

    PowerAmp. I love that it's so versatile- the EQ settings are second to none, the swipe to skip is nice for when I'm switching songs in the car and don't want to have to feel for specific buttons, and the album art fetching is a nice touch.
