    you're supposed to SEARCH for rockon. then download 3.it's the 3rd choice down.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    You want to download "3", not Rockon. The guy who developed Rockon also developed "3".

    If you have a barcode scanner, this'll get you there too:

    I'm using it now. It's pretty cool, but getting around in my albums is a little weird. The widget looks nice though.

    If anyone else was curious, it does seem to have an option in the settings to allow changing of songs via an external device, but I haven't been able to try it with my car deck yet to see if it works.

    Installed 3 or cube (not sure what official name is) and really enjoy it overall. For those that want an idea of what it is all about the screens below show that you swipe up or down to rotate the cube and scroll album art, you swipe left or right to rotate the cube and scroll by letter (although you cant really see the cube against the black back on the screen shot its there). The other screens are of the album playlist view and the alternate overall view which is wall view vs the cube view.

    Would like to see...

    A ff, and rew function. The seek is nice but not accurate enough.
    A bookmark function, for those audio books.
    Bluetooth control. It plays over bt now but when i try to pause/play/next/or prev using bt controls it starts playing the stock player in the background so 2 songs are on at once (kinda fun but not functional).

    Overall this is a great start of a media player that is amazing at getting album artwork automatically and is fun to use as well as functional and clean. Great work dev! and I hope you don't mind the screen shots.

    Ok. I'm on a rooted Droid. I installed 3 and it worked great. Dropped the medium wiget on to my screen and it came up with "Problem Loading Widget". Every time I try and remove it I get a error "launcher 2 has stopped" it's a loop that won't allow me to move or remove the widget.

    Anyone know the answer to my question - what is the function of the "--" to the left of the Play button, and does it do anything when you press it? It does nothing for me...

  8. n2imagination

    It does nothing for me also but i believe this is going to be the playonce,loop once, or continual loop function. The right one is shuffle so makes sense that the left one will be the play opt.

    Think you may need to use astra or another process mgr and kill off the 3 process to get rid of the widget. I have not had this happen when I tried the widgets though.

    I already tried killing the process. I even tried uninstalling the app. The error just sits on the screen. "Problem Loading Widget"

    I assume you have done a batt pull reboot, yeah? Thats my only other idea aside from contacting the dev.

    This is a SWEET app! Thanks for the best audio player on the market.

    That being said, please include a bookmarking function so that we can efficiently listen to audio books.

    Thank you kind sir, or kind female.

    while in "editing theme" mode, long press on the widget and choose "edit" and then "choose widget" at the bottom. It won't work otherwise.

    rogue994 Member

    Yeah already tried a battery pull... Looks like I'm contacting the dev today. thanks for you assistance.

    Umm...how do I enter "editing theme" mode?

    This app is so cool. In case you guys didnt realize this, I just did. At the bottom when you are playing a song it displays the song name and what not...If you want to fast forward just click towards the right side of the name and it will take you to that part of the song. If that made sense.
  16. n2imagination

    n2imagination Well-Known Member

    yeah but that is a search function, vs ff. It is great for music but hard to use if listening to an audiobook that you want to get back to where you left off. Fat fingers small screen syndrome.

    Yeah but it is still a really cool feature haha :D

    My only problem with 3 is that I HAVE to queue the songs. I would like to just find my artist, pick the album, and press play. Then have a list view of the album..
  19. n2imagination

    n2imagination Well-Known Member

    I agree on the queue thing (kinda). It would be nice for it to auto create the queue but there is the option after selecting an album to queue all which then creates a complete "playlist type queue" for the album. Then when you press the queue button it pulls up that albums "playlist" so you can jump fwd in play order. The downside to this queue type list vs playlist is that you can only jump fwd in order since it removes the prev. songs from the queue. BTW in your queue list if you long press song it auto removes them from the queue so it is pretty easy to create more custom queues so they imitate playlists.

    Needs a way to save queue as playlist though.

    Oops, my bad. I thought you were on Sweeterhome 2, trying to put the widget on the screen. SH2 has the same "data loading" error when you try it.

    Sorry, Rogue. :eek:

    NP. Thanks anyways. I've already emailed dev for both. Hopefully I hear back soon.

    I rarely have whole albums but rather top 40 compilations and things like that...doesn't seem to know how to handle that very well.

    Initial impression is I love it; it's just what I've been wanting. Also, as a Behold 2 owner, it's nice to have a cube app that is actually useful...

    Ha! yeah...;)

    The commentor used that cube "all of 10 seconds" and was bored.

    Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should...:rolleyes:

    I like it, but on the widget, it doesn't seem to show the name of the song I'm playing. Or am I doing something wrong?
