CyanogenMod Apollo music player now available on Google Play in both free and paid capacities

Earlier this year, the CyanogenMod team announced that Apollo would be replacing the stock music player to allow for a fully customizable and enthralling experience. When it was first announced, we were told to expect it to arrive in the Android Market within the next couple of weeks. Here we are nearly 10 months later, and the highly anticipated application has finally made its way to what we now call the Google Play Store.

It’s the same music player we’ve come to know and love, and now everybody can take part. Apollo comes in two different capacities: the regular free version and the paid Apollo+ version. Apollo+ costs just 99 cents, features quicker updates and removes pesky advertisements. Future updates are said to bring concert information, tablet optimization, personalized widgets and notifications, as well as support for Google’s Daydream service.

Be sure to scan the QR codes or hit the Play Store download links after the break to try out Apollo. Keep in mind you may need to disable your stock music player within the application settings menu. Also, let us know what you think of the CM team’s new third party music organization tool in the comments below.
