    On the iPhone you can double press the home button from the desktop or within any app and it will bring up a small popup for music player. Does Android have a feature like that?

    Power Strip allows you to have widgets or applications come up as an overlay on a double-tap of the home key. Just add the music widget to the Power Strip and you have access to it.

    You can also access the music player from the notification bar.

    or you can use the free app, smart bar, and assign the camera button to pop up the music player, which is really nice imo

    I need access while reading in Aldiko and it hides the notification bar. I also need to access it when the player is paused.
