Don’t you wish there was an easy way to play your MP3 files on your Mac independently from iTunes? Create a temporary playlist with just a couple of clicks? Wish granted! Check out our Simple MP3 Player! This app does exactly what its name says – it plays your MP3 files, and it’s really easy to use!

The new design features controls just like the ones on a hand-held MP3 player: Play, Pause, Rewind, Fast-forward. You can also adjust the volume, or skip to the exact spot in the track you are looking for.

The player will also display the name of the track currently playing and show you the list of your tracks. You can add new files to that list any time. Or, you can Clone the player and create a whole new playlist on the player #2! You can use both players together or separately.

In addition to MP3 files, Simple MP3 Player supports the following formats: m4a, wav, aiff, caf, mp4, mp2, mp1, aac, au, m4r.

Drag & Drop your audio files into the app, choose a play mode (In order, Loop or Shuffle) and hit Play! It really is that easy. Download it today!

Great Little Program

If you keep your expectations realistic, this player does exactly what it’s supposed to… play MP3s. It also plays a number of other audio file formats, like WAV and is perfect for listening to e-mail attachments like voicemails without invoking the full iTunes app. I read the negative reviews and think many of them are from people who didn’t take the time to learn how this software works. For $1.99 it’s a great deal. I am happy with my purchase and you will be too if you take a little time to play around with it.


No frills

plays thumb drives I use in cars which is all I expected and wanted. simple to use, as there are very poor instructions, and uses almost no memory. I’ve loaded over 1000 songs with no problem.


Absolutely perfect!!

Easy to use, very adaptable, does exactly what I want and I do not have to use iTunes bloatware. Incredible!
