Tray Player is an app that allows you to play MP3 files on your computer. It quickly sorts through the files and folders that you Drag & Drop into the app, and plays only files with audio. Also, Tray Player does not take up any valuable space on your screen! It shows up in your status menu (the bar on top of the screen) as well as in the dock, a.k.a. the task bar on the bottom.

Tray Player’s controls resemble those of a hand-held MP3 player: Play, Pause, Rewind, Fast-forward. You can select to play your tracks in order, on the loop, or shuffle them. The player displays the name of the track currently playing, and you can skip to the exact spot in this track. You can also see the list of your tracks and add new files to that list any time you want.

Drag & Drop your audio files into one of the 3 locations: the app window, the app icon in the status menu, or the one in the dock, choose a play mode and hit Play! It really is that easy. Download it today!

Ratings and Reviews

Simple To Use!


So far this APP has proven to be a great Value! Only request I have on future updates are to remove all other APP’s that are available for purchase, its really not necessary on an APP I’ve purchased. If theres a way to remove please let me know.

Great Work otherwise!

I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t like this app!


I love the fact that I can pick and choose the files that I want to play. It is simply the best app I have ever had. It is far better than iTunes. I don’t have to throttle it to get it to work. Great app!

Simple, Effective Voice Recorder

The Motorcyclist

I don’t know what happened to those other reviewers, but my experience with this app has been fine. It records, it allows for renaming the file, and keeps recordings organized in a dedicated folder. What else can be asked if an app does what it’s supposed to do? This app works fine on my MacBook Air.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback! We think you mean an other our app, that calls "Easy Audio Recorder".
