Know of a good iPod-like music player/manager for your mobile phone?

Have you ever bought or downloaded an application for your mobile phone that gives you a music manager and player just like the iPod? If so, I'd like to hear about it.

I'm doing some research of the availability of applications for mobile phones that provide iPod-like functionality.
In other words, an application that you load onto your mobile phone that allows you to navigate your music using the meta-data (album/artist/song/genre) of the files on your phone and then play them. Supporting of playlists, ratings and some kind of synchronisation with a computer would be an added bonus.
The operating system of the device you have it for it doesn't matter too much (so Symbian, Palm, BREW and Microsoft are all fine), I'm more interested in what the application was called, who made it and whether you thought it was any good.
I'm not interested in pre-loaded applications provided by the phone vendor (eg. Sony Ericsson and Nokia's own music applications) and of course, the iPod since this research would be used to directly compete with them.
