      "This is an offline music app for Android. It organizes all your music offline and you can customize playlists, adjust the music equalizer which is super cool, and you can shake to play the next/previous song too. It's a neat app and I find myself using it often when I don't want to use data to listen to music! Easy to find all my music and easy to use."

      "This app has a decent design aesthetic, but the "2017" in the icon is unnecessary. I'm not a fan of detailed backgrounds for app backgrounds, but it's still an app I would keep my eye on. I would prefer something with more minimalistic design."

Samsung music fully supports offline playing of music, and it's extremely user-friendly and easy to get started.
