I'll propably finally get folder playback for the Apollo this or next week.
What I can promise is some touch of material design for 4.4

Great to have an updated version of Apollo. I'm back on CM11 since a week and I've been annoyed by one thing since..... Apollo shows one artist as the album artist of a compilation album. So on my paired bluetooth devices with display I see the same artist with different songs. I hoped your improved Apollo would fix this, it hasn't. So I wondered, is it because of the way I tag albums. Or is it the app? Anyone else experience this behavior?

Eagerly waiting for the upcoming version

I hope that you fixed that issue where clicking on the "Back" button doesn't go back to playing the previous song (when shuffling is turned on).

Good news and bad news
Hi guys,

I was trying to bring material design to the Apollo today. I spent about 5 hours straight trying to figure stuff out. I thought I just might not be experienced enough to do this, even by following the guides all over the internet on how to get material design using support libraries in order for it to work on pre 5.0 devices. I asked for help on our RC/RD/RT DEV hangouts at the point I felt that I'm helpless. Well, some stuff was moving forwards.

We were getting closer and closer, but still not there. Vishal tried to help me, @GermainZ tried and then Geetesh Kalakoti joined. He did all he could to help me, we were really moving forwards, but at some point when everything should work properly, it didn't. Action bar had it's title set using resources instead of actionBar.setTitle and so on.

Thanks to Geetesh Kalakoti from putting me out of this project as this wouldn't lead me to anything good. I started this project in order to learn Java and improve the best player I've known so far for me, which I thought was Apollo. As it turned out the code is really bad. Maybe it's extremely outdated, maybe it's poorly written, I don't know.

So what?
Nothing. This project is abandoned. Thank you guys for all the support you gave me, but this just doesn't make sense as I'm going around the code I don't know, that's not as clear for me and it's also not well-written.
If you need more features or stuff, switch to some other players. If you're on 5.0 then Eleven CM player is good with a Apollo look.

What's next?
I'll slowly learn Java. I'll start with calculator and move further on to reach my goal - a perfect, nice and lightweight music player which would share a simple UI and easy access to everything.

It's been a long ride. Thanks to everyone that helped me, thanks for all of the support from you guys and thanks for using this app. It's really awesome when you see about 10k people using your app everyday!

Anyway your music player is awesome and ill keep use it for long

So thanks for all your work. And if a day you will make new app. Say it
