My music is arranged by file name, not track name (since before people commonly carried music players around…), so most music players play tracks in the wrong order for me. Annoying for multi-movement classical works, crazy for audio books where sorting alphabetically by chapter title leads to really strange story arcs.

I used to use the now-abandoned Clean Music app, but that quit working on my phone when the Nougat update finally arrived.

Folder Player Pro handles my music collection correctly, and the developer jumped on a trivial UI bug with a simple workaround and very quickly solved it, even though I didn’t really need it resolved.

Definitely recommended, especially if you are like me and carry your audio collection around with you!

I once sorted the sentences of Wealth of Nations by length, because reasons.

That’s an interesting way to read a book.

i=0;ls while read do; i=expr $i + 1; id3tag -t$i -s$f -A… $f;done

Does id3tag work on ogg?

No, google this was not spam.

Huh. I’m not the only one lost in this maze.

+Michael K Johnson I thought your collection dates to the time before ogg was invented :p
