Rocket Player is a music player application for Android devices. Your device comes with a music player built in, but that player usually does not have the feature set that Rocket Player has.

No! Your app purchases are tied to your Google account. View this tutorial to download previously purchased apps to a new device.
To turn off Rocket Player we recommend pressing pause and then the home button. Let Android do the rest. If you wish, you can swipe away Rocket Player from the recent apps, and it will shut down. For more information on stop buttons in Android apps view our blog post (See begin to play on connect with headphones).
Headset controls are available in Settings > Headset Settings. They allow you to toggle whether or not Rocket Player obeys headset commands, or whether Rocket Player begins to play when you connect your headphones.
Rocket Player works with Bluetooth and single button headphones. When using single button headphones, use the following as a guide.
1 button press - Pause/Play
2 button presses - Beginning of the current song
3 button presses - Next song
4 button presses - Previous song
This is a setting in Rocket Player called "Begin Play On Connect," this is why Rocket Player plays when headphones are connected. To turn off this setting press "Menu" > "Settings" > "Headset/Bluetooth Settings" > "Begin Play On Connect."
Music that is not showing up in Rocket can be due to the SD card not being scanned properly. Try using Rocket Player's folder support to scan for media.
Album art can be located in the file or in the album art .jpeg file that comes with the album. Rocket Player currently selects the art that your device's media scanner selects. If your desired album art is not displayed, you can enable "Prefer ID3 Artwork" in "Settings > Album Art".
To make Rocket Player the default music player, we need to disable Google Music. Starting in Android 4.1 disabling applications is allowed. To do this go to: "Settings > Applications > Downloaded > Google Play Music > Uninstall Updates", then select "Disable". You can reenable the Google Play application at any time.
"Scrobbling a song means that when you listen to it, the name of the song is sent to Last.fm and added to your music profile" (source: last.fm/FAQ). To enable, go to "Settings > Audio Settings > Scrobbler Settings". Here you can scrobble to last.fm.
Going to "Settings > Scanner Settings > Android Manages Playlists" in Rocket Player will allow you to use the Android media database that is accessed by other applications. WARNING: This will not be as stable as Rocket Player's playlists. If the media database on your device becomes corrupted, the playlists will be deleted.
Rocket Player's lockscreen behaves like any other music player's lockscreen. Pressing the home button takes you to either your device's normal lockscreen if it is active or to your home screen if the device itself was not locked.
If you'd like to view how many songs you have in Rocket Player, go to "Songs" begin playing from the top, then go to the "Playlists" tab and select the "Now Playing" playlist. This will display how many song you have in Rocket Player.
Rocket Player will sort numerically then alphabetically all tabs.
However within these tabs, there is some additional sorting:
Artists - sorts by album year.
Albums - sorts by track number
Playlists - sorts by playlist edit (User assigned)
Folders - sorts alphabetically by folder
Podcasts - sorts alphabetically in tab, then by release number (if included in title) else, alphabetically.
Genres - sorts alphabetically by artist
No, you can not change the way Rocket Player sorts its tabs.
Try to toggle "Auto Clean Playlists" in iSyncr's "Tools > Settings > Media Scanner". Then rescan by going to "Rescan for Media" in the same "Media Scanner" setting.
To play all go to the "Songs" (Tab) then press play. To shuffle all from the "Songs" (Tab) long press on a song and select "Shuffle".
Shuffle in Rocket Player means, randomize. i.e. Do not play a specific song/selection. When you select in Rocket Player, it means that you're playing a specific song/selection and the "shuffle" feature is turned off. Shuffle's on/off feature can be easily toggled from the "Now Playing" screen.
It could be that the application is installed to the SD card and not the internal memory. This will not allow the widget to be displayed. To resolve this select "Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Rocket Player" then select move to internal. Then try attaching the widget again.
Large notifications were added in 4.1 and later device's - to view the large notification, place two fingers on the sides of the notification and drag down. This motion is also used to remove the notification but by dragging up.
Replay Gain, is a measure of the perceived loudness of audio in computer audio formats. Rocket Player uses replay gain values, but does not calculate them. We suggest a program like Foobar2000 to put replay gain information into your music files.
You can enable replay gain by going to "Menu > Settings > Audio Settings > Replay Gain". Note that your music must have replay gain information, Rocket Player will not calculate the values.
Play Store purchased music is natively stored in the cloud and can not be played in any other music player other than Google Music while in the cloud. However, there are ways that we can add Play Store purchased music to your device's memory so that it can be played in Rocket Player.
1. Use an application like Google Cloud Importer
2. Download the Play Music from Google onto a computer and sync it with iSyncr or, drag and drop the music onto your Android's storage.
