CyanogenMod 9 Music app released
CyanogenMod has been at the forefront of Android innovation, and today’s release of their new music app is no exception. Read more after the break.
When Google redesigned the Google Music app last year, it changed the way people listen to and buy music on their Android device. Andrew Neal of the CyanogenMod team decided that Google’s redesign was a nice start, but like just about everything the CyanogenMod team does they decided to improve upon it. In the post on his blog where he describes his new app, he talks about taking the old Google Music app and re-writing it to fit his vision of what it should be. Among the many new features and user interface improvements come gesture-based operation, custom lockscreens, custom notifications, drag & drop queues, and full CM Theme Engine support.
User interface and user experience aren’t the only things being addressed here though. Integration with the Android Market, social networking and general library maintenance are all improved and included in the 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.
You’ll also find that there are a number of interaction options available as well with gestures support, and new widgets as well:
The Music app also comes with native Shake and Flip actions. Quickly play and pause your music by flipping your phone face down, then back up again. You can customize the Shake Action to control you music in more detail. Both of these actions run in the background and can be used no matter where you are in your phone. Fling up to control your music. Long press for Party Shuffle. Long press for queue.
