    What's your favorite way to play your music on your Playbook? Do you use the native music player, one downloaded from App World, or do you use a sideloaded app? Chime in!

    I'm mainly interested in what apps might work best for my needs to sync playlists from the computer to the Playbook. Hence, the native application is presently too limited (until RIM updates it, I hope).

    I'm waiting for the update on the native app, but am already using it as most of the time shuffle is all I need

    I have Subsonic set up at home, so I just stream everything via the browser or SonicAir - depending on what I feel like using.

    It works incredibly though!

    I am using the native one, though there is no equalizer or many settings but does the job well.

    I hope it can support FLAC and show search results as artists instead of songs in Artists view though. Is there any music player app in the app world?

    the native music player gets the job done. I would love an EQ and visualizations though.

    Native one is fine...

    EQ is not really important to me.. just listen to bands who know how to mix there tunes

    I have SkyTunes which works great.. Also have Sonicair which is even better cause it shows the art work and the while interface is much nicer.

    I just use the native music player. It isn't the best, I dislike that it doesn't remember my shuffle setting, but I don't need anything more than something to play my music. Until something better comes along, it's it.

    I just use the native player as well; I wish it had a music visualization software component as well - that would look sweet. Come June, I'll have the Blackberry Music Gateway - the new one - and use that to send my music via BT to my stereo. No more cords

    i use the native one..but it needs MAJOR improvements.

    for sycning - i use a combination of the bb desktop manager and me creating an itunes smart playlist called playbook that I sync with on the desktop manage.

    Also I use the drag and drop method over wifi file sharing.
