Since the introduction of the iPhone into popular culture, it seems today that if you haven't got a decent music player on your mobile, you're a bit of a dork.

That's bad news for anyone with a Windows Mobile device, because the built-in version of Windows Media Player is looking a bit long-in-the-tooth now. Fear not though, because with the PocketMusic Player Bundle, you can replace the default audio player with something altogether cooler.

PocketMusic on the Pocket PC impressed me a lot, and while this Smartphone version of the program is s a somewhat scaled-down release, it still provides more great functionality than you get with WMP and handles a range of formats, including MP3, Ogg and WMA.

The player interface itself is tidy enough and besides the basic playback controls you get one-click access to the EQ, power bass and shuffle modes. Unfortunately, unlike the Pocket PC version, you can't apply a Winamp skin to the interface, which, I guess is due to the size constraints of most Smartphone screens.

Explore the menu system and you'll uncover a huge array of options for organising playlists, bookmarking music, setting alarms and sleep timers, and much more.

It's going to take a few more updates before this version of PocketMusic is as polished as its Pocket PC-based cousin, but it's still a better option than Windows Media Player, in my opinion.
