Solved Irfanview-Like Audio Player for Android

March 1, 2019 at 18:02:45
Specs: Windows 7/10
In Windows, I use IrfanView (IV) to sort audio files. IV allows me to use arrow keys to move quickly to the next or previous file. Among the files I hear, I select several with Ctrl-Click in Explorer, and then cut and paste to move them into other folders. It's all pretty fast.

This is a contrast against other audio players. They seem more clunky. I haven't found any that make it so easy to move among audio files.

I'm considering an Android tablet. So there are two unknowns for me: I have very little knowledge of either Android or tablets. I'm open to suggestions for a tablet-keyboard-mouse-software combination that seems similar to what I have described.

Many thanks.

Personally, I prefer VLC for Android. While it may not have the exact feature you specify, it moves through files with just a double-tap. It also handles most video files (even better than IrfanView for Windows):

If you're moving/deleting files, then I'd suggest a good file manager app, such as Astro:

There's a multitude of tablet keyboards available on Amazon:

Good info. I should have figured there's a version of VLC on Android. That may be the closest I can get to IrfanView's handling of audio files.

So I guess the standard way of moving multiple files on Android would not be to Ctrl-Click to select several before moving, but rather to move them one at a time. I'll have to do some more digging, to try to figure out which tablets are most conducive to this sort of work, how a mouse works with Astro or other Android file managers, whether it has to be Bluetooth, etc.

Thanks for your help.

"So I guess the standard way of moving multiple files on Android would not be to Ctrl-Click to select several before moving, but rather to move them one at a time."

Astro allows multiple selections of files (as do most file managers), but there generally isn't a "Ctrl-click" option.

"...how a mouse works with Astro or other Android file managers..."

There shouldn't be much of an issue, as long as the mouse is Android-compatible:
