The Android development community is abuzz right now about a downloadable .APK file that made its way to the Internet today, thanks to up-and-coming developer and CyanogenMOD crew member, +Andrew Neal. For those of you who’ve been following us for a while, you may remember a while back when we first reported on the sexy new Music app that will be coming to CyanogenMOD 9 builds in the near future. Today, the world gets its first taste of said app, thanks to a post on Seeing Pixels and shared to Google+ thanks to Mr. Neal.
For those unfamiliar, the new CM9 Music app has a sleek and sexy UI and features a literal ton of functionality. The top-notch customization features in the application allow you to 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.
Some of the apps other key features include:
- Fling up to control your music
- Long press for Party Shuffle
- Long press for queue
- Custom notifications
- Drag and drop queue and playlist
- Custom lockscreen
- Shake and flip options
- New widgets
The Music app only works on devices already running CyanogenMOD 9, so sorry about your luck if you’re not in that group — hey, I’m right with you too, so don’t kill the messenger. If you’re lucky enough to have a CM9-ified device, head on over to the source link below for all the 411 and download links. Then be sure to add Andrew on Google+ to keep tabs on his work and say thanks. Enjoy!
