    Changing the default music player on Android 2.3.5 device

    My phone is based on Android 2.3.5 Ginger Bread version. I had recently bought Poweramp software for playing music but I cannot get it initialized. While I play music it gets played through my old music player and not through the new one. How can I get it to play on my new music player?

    Re: Changing the default music player on Android 2.3.5 device

    The issue that you have mentioned is happening because the older music player that you were using had been set as default on your mobile phone. On changing it, you will get the option for selecting between the two. Switching off the default player can be done by changing it in the settings page. This can be done as follows. Access the ‘settings’ page in the device. From the settings opt for ‘applications’. From the applications page you will be able to choose the option ‘all’. On this page you will have all of your apps listed. Select the music app that you were using previously and disable it. This would either make the new app default or will display a message to select the music player whenever you start playing the music.
