About three weeks back we told you that the CyanogenMod team would be bringing more customizations and gesture support to the stock Ice Cream Sandwich music player. We didn’t have an exact time frame for a release but with that you can’t rush creativity. Well even with that said, Andrew Neal brought the customized, beefed up music player to us in a very timely fashion. He brought to us a slew of touch gestures as well as even more added functionality to the app. As he puts it:
“The app comes with a degree of customization that you won’t find in any other Music app, or possibly, in any app. You can shop the Android Market for the currently playing song at the push of a button, share what track you’re listening to with all your social outlets, set your favorite song as ring tones, delete unwanted tracks, and search your music from anywhere in the app. “
With gestures you will be able to do things like flip your phone over to quickly play and pause music. The shake action is customizable and both of these features can run in the background allowing you to use them no matter what you’re doing on your phone. These features will come in handy if you ever need to quickly shut off your music.
While I have yet to play with the app fully, it looks to take the stock player to a whole new level. It isn’t in the market yet as Mr. Neal is figuring out what to call it but you can hit the break below to download the app or view the source. You can also get the template for the app to which should spur a host of templates down the road and the app will also be featured in CM9. Let us know what you think! » Read the rest
