DescriptionIDEAL MP3 Player is a fully-accessible MP3 player for Android. It is a derivative work based on RockLock, a simple, eyes-free music player/screen lock application. All gesture controls are based on Google Eyes-Free Project’s stroke dialer. We would like to thank Charles L. Chen and T.V. Raman, from Google, for having developed RockLock… without which we would not have developed IDEAL MP3 Player!

NEW: THANK YOU to NLL for their willingness to honor our request to enhance their wonderful Android MP3 recorder called “ASR - Free MP3 Sound Recorder” in a manner that is fully-compatible with IDEAL MP3 Player!
Here's a link to ASR on Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nll.asr
NLL’s modification to ASR enables students to easily create sub-directories on their SD card. Students can now record classroom sessions and save their recordings to custom sub-directories designed to be compatible IDEAL MP3 Player.
This will enable them to quickly navigate to any previously recorded classroom notes for a specific subject, topic, and recording date.
Here are some examples:
/sdcard/ideal/music/complex numbers/powers of i/2012-08-16_3.mp3
/sdcard/ideal/music/solving equations/one equation/2012-08-16_7.mp3
/sdcard/ideal/music/solving equations/two equations/2012-08-16_8.mp3
