    The "3" app which is a great music player to replace the stock one. Just search for RockOn to find it... but DON'T download RockOn,,, instead, download "3" which will be in the results listing. This app will also find album art for all of your music and it's free.

    How does it compare to MixZing and/or TuneWiki?

    I like Tune Wiki. It's a good, "all-in-one" program but it's a lot like the native media player.

    I haven't tried MixZing yet.

    "3" has a very unique, innovative, and "fun to use" interface that's just cool to look at. Plus, it has a very good, functional widget that looks great on the home screen.

    Thanks..... been using mixzing for a long time because of the large widget, but this one looks 10 times better. The UI of this player is great. Once this player is perfected I would recommend it to all. Good loookin out.

    Has anyone tried this with a Bluetooth deck? If so can you tell me whether the forward/back buttons on the deck control the player? This works in my car with the stock player and with MixZing, but it doesn't work with TuneWiki. Just curious.

    +1, the preferences don't have an option for this like mixzing, so i'm doubting it. Might be a feature left off of the beta version.

    Very slick. By the way, this is not the '3' media player, so much as the 'cubed' media player.

    I just don't like how it went and redownloaded all my album art, seeing as how I had it all already :(

    Good point about the 'cubed' naming convention.

    Sorry about your album art. If you press and hold your finger on the cube, you can pick your album art based on choices from the web.

    Thanks! It's not a big deal actually, I was just worried that what the player downloaded might have overwritten what I had set for the stock media player, but it didn't.

    In fact, I think '3' keeps it's own album art stored in a cache or something, because the transitions between albums are so fluid.

    Also, for those who haven't tried, the 'Wall' view is pretty spectacular too.

    cool find! i'm liking this player. the cube is a bit sensitive but i can get used to that. i like the large widget. i don't have that much stuff on my 5 screens so now i can consolidate and dedicate one of my screens to the player, and it displays the album art! awesome.

    It doesn't replace the artwork for the default player.

    But I'm sure you'll like the player!

    Is there an option to stop it from using its own album art? I remember with rock on, while it didn't replace my album art, it got half of them wrong and it didn't show mine. I listen to a lot of live recordings and had custom made album art for each, so this was not what I wanted to see.

    Does cube have a standard List View?

    Maybe I am just old school, but I find the list view easiest to navigate. Sure the cube looks cool, but it is a lot easier searching in alphabetical order when you have a ton of albums. I know you can rotate the cube horizontally to find the letter, but I think I would still like a standard list.
