Symbian S60 music player FolderPlay looks like a file manager. If you navigate to a folder with music, it will play all songs in that folder.
FolderPlay doesn't handle subfolders well: if you play a folder with songs and more songs in subfolders, it only plays the tracks in the first subfolder and ignores the other songs and folders.
FolderPlay plays MP3, WAV, FLAC, APE, AC3, OGG, and other files, but not WMA.
The latest series of updates add a playback progress indicator, rewind, OGG playback, and a couple of bugfixes
There are other ways to play music organised by folders. Music Launcher is similar to FolderPlay, but MusicLauncher does it better if you stick with MP3. PowerMP3 and TTPod sort your music by tags and by folder structure, and there's a folder structure workaround for the built-in Symbian music player.
