    looks promising... I downloaded it and installed, but I don't have much music left to play on my SD card. moved it all to the cloud. Been trying Amazon and Google. Wish it could connect to either one, but obviously I understand why it can't. I am curious how long it takes Microsoft to send him a friendly letter.

    Something I wish it did was allow you to use controls from the lock screen. Stock music app lets you but Feds does not.

    So is there a 3rd party music player that works with google music? I really like the newest version of the music app from google and I really like the way it syncs with google music.

    I just found out about google music the other day. I asked for an invite or whatever so I can give it a shot.

    I can't wait to try it.

    Nope, if you want cloud sync right now, you need Google Music.



    Does Fede's app support podcasts - downloading/bookmarking partially finished/etc?

    Looks nice. No equalizer, no playlist save capability.

    I have it, and looks great. I'm a Zune user so it's really fast to pick up for me. Only thing is I've been using google music so I haven't been using it.

    i like the look and feel of this app, but its missing way too many features. lockscreen controls,music widget,equalizer, easier access to now playing. id love google music support but i know thats not happening.

    he should be working on finishing that rewrite for LPP he's been talking about for months and months now. Wasn't it originally going to be done in January? lol

    Although I really like the look of the app.

    are those my 10% battery icons?!

    i agree...a widget(ive seen it, its coming), the equalizer, and lockiscreen controls would make it killer

    agreed...i like the app...but frankly have been waiting for MONTHS on the rewrite of LPP

    Can someone tell me how to choose a default music player? My bluetooth head unit in my truck keeps starting the factory music app when I change songs etc.

    I think it was yours, along with your deodex, crt off and multicolor battery.

    If you are talking about the battery with the 90 in it that is battery indicator pro.

    Unfortunately, this is a problem with Android. The apps like to fight each other for control over the BT commands.

    You're pretty much restricted to uninstalling the stock music player, unless someone else has a better solution.

    I thought he was working on the next, optimized version of LPP. I guess not anymore. With WinAmp and PowerAmp he has two huge targets to match and/or overcome. I'm not sure why he would enter such a flooded market instead of solidifying the one he practically started or at least was in on the ground floor.

    He must have his reasons.

    Installed Alpha 4 this morning and it worked fine on Froyo stock. Installed the OTA files for Gingerbread, now I get a force close everytime. Anyone know the best place to send bug reports to Fede?

    I would try clearing the cache for the app. If that doesn't work try reinstalling it. Works fine on gb for me.

    this was the only thing missing from my phone. i LOVED my Zune HD player, and now i have it on my DX :)
    thanks for the link, i had the original version and had no idea other version were getting pushed out. looks like he has fixed all but one thing. i REALLY want the ability to "shuffle all" my music, then be able to go into my library, find a song, and add it as the "next song to play" even if the list is in shuffle mode. if he does this, he has more money coming his way. anything on top of that *cought* full EQ and album art download *cough* would be icing on the cake.

    Is there a better way to submit bug reports than to just toss them out here?

    I've been using Fede's app for the last couple of months. No problems until Alpha4 and Alpha5. Both of those versions play for a while (between 4 and 15 minutes) and then pause playback. Once I press Play, playback resumes for a while and then it pauses again.

    Alpha2 didn't do this, or maybe I didn't play it long enough to see the pause behavior.

    Anyone else seeing this? Any suggestions to try?

    Thanks.
