    What's the best football team? Who makes the best pizza? What's the best XBox game?

    This has been brought up over and over and over again.
    There's a FAQ Emporium that lists all the major frontends. Most of them are free (at least for now). You can download them and see which one you like the best for your project, rather than relying on the opinions of others.

    You should take into account the specs of your system, the functionality of the software, the look and feel of the software, skins that are available (if applicable), support, speed, etc.
    You know your project better than we.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I guess I should have asked which one do you have and why did you choose it.

    Look in the frontends forum, download them, and see for yourself.
    Or check out the isntalls and see what frontends they use.

    frodoplayer + brightlife combo

    I use Frodoplayer with the brightlife skin...

    By far the easiest one to navigate around with. Going from songs to moives or to Gps, best part i like when compared to other frontends and skins this combination is the easiest/quickest to go from one song to another.

    If there is better id like to know...

    i chose road runner. simply because it has the highest post count in the Front Ends forum, therefore i assumed it would have the most support, and the most answered questions etc etc (which is important when ur just starting out - avoids you having to ask stupid questions, someone else has already asked for u!) It also seemed to have the most active skinning subforum which was important to me as i wanted to create my own skin. but i spent weeks just reading front end forums before i came to my final decisiion.

    I'm going to have to go with Mobile Impact. Very simple and easy to use, plus the author is very active with developing this FE.
