Poll Results: I Want My MP3

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: I Want My MP3 -- The results of last week's poll asking which MP3 player you preferred rather surprised us. Only about 12 percent of the nearly 900 respondents claimed that they never listened to MP3s, which I expected to be higher. As far as the programs went, SoundJam and Audion finished in almost a dead heat, with 30 percent of the poll respondents voting for each of them. QuickTime Player, SoundApp, and Macast occupied a lower band, with between 5 percent and 9 percent of the votes, and GrayAmp, RealPlayer, MVP, Aqueous, and QuickAmp managed only a handful votes. A mere 21 people voted for Other, with suggestions in TidBITS Talk including AppleSource MP3, MPLAY, Liquid Audio Player, and Amp Radio. See the TidBITS Talk thread for full information and links.
