Dopamine Portable, music as simple and pretty as possible!
"I stuck with Winamp even after I upgraded to Windows 10, but it doesn’t play nice with my 4K display. That’s why I’ve been looking for a worthy replacement, and Dopamine seems to check all the boxes on my list. ... I found the interface to be much better to navigate than iTunes for finding songs and artists... If you’re looking for a capable music player to handle a large music collection, you should definitely give Dopamine a try." —Abhimanyu Ghoshal, TNW/thenextweb.com (Jul 4, 2016)
"Earlier today, we reported on a concept of Xbox Music app for Windows 10, rating it highly for the design and the vibrant UI. Now it appears that there is a music player even better than the previous concept,... is Dopamine - a music player with a fantastic UI, developed for desktops." —Usama Jawad, Neowin.net, (Feb 28, 2015)
"The first question that may arise is it ready to replace Groove Music? I would say in some cases yeah. ... Do i like it? I LOVE IT , and i would suggest you guys to try it too." —Sriyansa Mohanty, OneTechStop.net (July 12, 2016)
