Symbian S60 music player FolderPlay has been updated often lately. Bugs were fixed, random play sequence ("shuffle play") was added, the program speaks more languages, and FolderPlay now plays AAC files too.
FolderPlay now plays MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, APE, AC3, OGG, and other files, but not WMA.
FolderPlay looks like a file manager. If you navigate to a folder with music, it plays all songs in that folder, but subfolders are problem. If you play a folder with songs and subfolders, it only plays the tracks in the first subfolder and ignores the rest.
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.
