Version 3.0.0

Symfonium is now Android 9+ due to abuse on the ratings about the equalizer not being present before and not enough ratings to counter that. Previous versions will still work fine on Android 5 to 8, but if you want a refund just contact me. Please note that I’m not happy to have to do that, but it’s already hard enough to fight the “app should be free bad ratings”, Play Store is a jungle, your ratings have an impact.

  • Sleep timer can be set as the additional information row. (With long press to quickly configure)
