    hey again all,

    just wondering if anyone had any recommendations.

    i have a lg gw620 or "intouch max" depending which way you look at things.

    anyways, the stock music player is fine, and has a solid selection of options within the app, however it lacks decent options on the home page (it only shows skip track and pause options unless you open up the app)
    what im looking for is something thats more widget like i suppose, that gives me more options without having to actually open the app.

    I've been using merdian, mostly because of the touch screen to pause and play, you don't have to hunt and peck for a little button. It is fine.

    MixZing lite is good enough for me, pretty powerfull yet simple widget.

    +1 for mixzing.

    Pure Music Widget is good too.

    A pretty good up and coming app is called Cubed. It was developed by the same person who did RockOn. Just enter the link into the search bar in the market and it should come up.

    P.s. That smiley is not supposed to be in the link. It is supposed to be a : and an "o" after pname. Sorry if it's complicated. Just couldn't get the QR code up.

    This app is visually amazing, both the cubed and wall versions are pretty decent, it is however in early stages so its not quite perfect but i would say give it a shot now and see how you like it. Just type Rock On in the markey and go down 2 or 3 til you see an app called "3"

    The only thing I don't like is the horrible resolution of the album art when using the widget.

    The resolution for the widget when using Pure Music Widget or MixZing is way way better.

    Hopefully the dev of 3 improves this aspect.
