Vox is a nicely-designed program that comes as an alternative to using iTunes for music playback. This feature-rich utility works with various audio formats, allows you to listen to dozens of radio stations, and lets you control the way its player operates from your Menu Bar or by using the defined global hotkeys.
This version of Vox provides you with an additional feature: the ability to store music within Loop (an integrated music storage service). This tool is basically a cloud storage portal where you can transfer your favorite songs and play them while you're away (by using your iPhone) or from another Mac.
You can save music playlists to your local directories (M3U, XSPF, and PLS), configure built-in equalizer settings according to your needs, play the songs in any order you like (choose queue order by dragging and dropping tunes within the playlist), and much more.
Here are some other things I like about this program: it automatically downloads missing artwork, pauses playback when you receive Skype calls, and saves playing positions. What's more, the app enables you to log in to your SoundCloud account and listen to your favorite music.
Even though there are several in-app purchases you need to make in order to have access to all of its feature, I still think it's worth working with Vox. This program offers many useful features, is simple to use, and supports many audio formats.
