    I'm loving my Note 4! I'm coming from the Galaxy S3 and the Droid X before that. I've never really been into putting music on my phone because I also have an iPod but now I'd like to explore options for my phone. I'm very used to iTunes and the customizations I've done in it. I'm more interested in creating playlists from my library of MP3s that allow me to order the songs within the playlist however I want (instead of alphabetically, etc).

    Am wondering what apps others are using for listening to custom-loaded playlists?

    Thanks!

    I use Google play music. Mostly because I have an All Access subscription, but not only will it let you create playlists, it will create "smart" playlists for you from a song you like. I've had great results.

    Not sure if the stock music player allows playlists. I always install Google music right away.

    Google Play and Poweramp support the importing of iTunes playlists.

    That's what I read anyways. I've only used iTunes twice. Once to re-flash iOS 8.1 on my 6+ so I could jailbreak it (it won't work if you've OTA'd from 8.0 to 8.1. The other time was the backup I did just before re-flashing. I have zero music in iTunes.

    I use Xbox Music if I do listen to music on my phone. One of things I like about that is finding an artist I like and then making a radio station with them. Xbox Music will find similar bands and make a playlist for me. I have discovered some new bands this way.
