Filed under "everyone plus dog late to the party with yet another redundant music+Video app".

They were bloatwear patent trolls on the computer. Why would I want that on my phone?

I was wondering the same thing, considering how awful their Windows version was with bloatware, spam, installing all kinds of extra crap. Almost tempted to install just to see how bloody big it is an application and what access it wants. Almost.

I've updated it coupe if days ago , its okay better than the stock android 2.1 music player , but still needs allot of work
Since , RealPlayer for android is still a beta version !

The only reason I would ever want RealPlayer on my Droid would be if it had the ability to stream .rm and .ram files. This app doesn't so what's the point? Major fail.

Holy shmoly, will Real's star ever stop rising? All I need now is a PointCast app, and I'll be partying like it's nineteen-ninety-something!
