Music player Kugou still won't shut up

Kugou Symbian mp3 player
Music player Kugou for mobile phones running on Symbian plays mp3, aac, wma, flac, and other audio files. The program displays all your tracks in a big list without filtering by artist, genre, or other mp3 tags. It can sort your files by artist or title, but if you have hundreds of songs on your memory card such primitive sorting is not enough.

The latest edition of KuGou has been translated into english by frenz, but there are still lots of buttons and menus and other parts in chinese. If you don't want KuGou to go online when you launch it, hit the right softkey.

Kugou used to be unable to list my music on my phones (it displayed all tracks as E! instead), but this bug is fixed now.

It's very hard to close Kugou. Trying to exit the program on my phones with the close button or the red hangup key pops up an error message (feature not supported), and Kugou refuses to quit. I had to shut down Kugou with KillMe to make it go away.

Warning: if you uninstall Kugou from your phone, several of its folders are left behind. To remove Kugou completely you have to use a file manager to clean up after the uninstaller.

My advice: forget about KuGou. Use PowerMP3 or TTPod instead. Even the built-in music player of your phone is better than KuGou, especially with this folder structure workaround.
