Federico Carnales, the guy behind the popular Launcher Pro, spent the last few months working on what started out as a Windows Phone 7 style music player and turned out to be a sweet skinnable music player. It went through some Alphas, and 3 Beta versions and finally hit the Market (and our own App Shop). Head on past the break for a list of great features this player brings to the table.
I can only recommend the 'Metro' skin, that makes it look just like the player on Windows Phone 7, as it's minimalistic yet nice looking and works wonders on your battery life if your phone's got a fancy AMOLED screen (since it's all black background and black pixels don't drain power on those). Below are the features listed on the market for the app, but there's a lot more to love and new skins are in the works that will surely please everyone.
- Fully skinnable (search for "UberMusic Skin" on the Market).
- Automatically downloads artist pictures and sets them as the screen background for that artist.
- 6 different widget sizes. The widget is fully skinnable too.
- Free live wallpaper included that shows album art from your music collection.
- You can click on the "Play" button next to an artist, album, playlist, etc. to directly play all the corresponding tracks.
- True shuffling (as opposed to just choosing a track at random) that avoids playing the same song twice.
- Super smooth interface with custom overscrolling on lists.
- Scrobbling support through the official Last.fm app or through ScrobbleDroid/SLS.
