Late last week, Andrew Neal – a developer in the CyanogenMod team – released an early beta build of the new stock music player in CM9.
Today, Andrew Neal has released a near final build of the new CM9 music player for all Android users to try. The CM9 music player is possibly the most customizable player or app in the Android ecosystem. The player has some nifty features like native shake and flip actions. This means users can quickly pause/play their music by putting the phone face down on the table, no matter where they are in their phone.
Other nifty features include a custom lock screen wallpaper, which changes the lock screen wallpaper to the current playing song’s album art, new widgets, the ability to share your current playing song to social networks in just a single click, buy the current listening track from the Android Market and much more. The CM9 Music app also has a theme engine, which will allow other graphic designers to change nearly every aspect of the player’s UI. Andrew has also released the theme template so that developers can start with their work of making themes right away. The new build is also much more stable and bug free compared to the previous version.
Andrew also plans on releasing the CM9 music player under a new name on the Android Market in the coming weeks. Until then, Android users running Ice Cream Sandwich on their handset can download the latest version of the Music app from here.
