Apollo is one of my favorite players. I wish it would live on, without material design (I don't like the minimalist look).

My previous favorite died off too, XMMS.
So did Winamp, another great player.

Tbh for the past 6 months I've been fiddling around with tons of different music players. Xenoamp, poweramp, Google play music, clean music player and none of them is perfect. Poweramp is paid and overloaded + not that good on battery, xenoamp is horrible with battery and cpu usage + it's ui is a nightmare, clean music player is crippled horribly and Google play music is terrible with local files. I got a xposed module to make it better but it took ages to play if I quickly skipped like 30 tracks in a row. Ultimately I went back to my own player and god it's good. It changes songs almost instantly. It actually goes to another file as represented by the ui. Gpm does this smooth ui transition to next track that is completely irrelevant to the file played. I genuinely think this is the best music player available for android at this time.

I don't want to make ANY promises, but I am thinking about getting back to its development. Currently I'll be busy with school and my kernel development for Z1 so it won't be anytime soon, but I think I might actually get back to it. Previous track on shuffle is not going back, but playing current track from start. I think I might try again to fix that, but again, it's just me thinking about it. I'm not saying that it will be done tomorrow or in a month. I might never do this. The last time I tried to figure it out it didn't go too well, but I really think it's worth a try.

I can now confirm that Apollo will be updated. I currently revived my project, but I've lost the signing keys so you will need to remove the older version before installing new version. Currently I updated all libraries, updated artwork downloader response code so that it will be even lighter on battery and current build target will be android 6.0. Minimal required android version will remain the same of course. I'm running 5.1.1 myself. Now I'll try to move the code from eclipse to android studio and after that some real changes will come.

In the meantime, I had spent some time looking for some more minimalistic/simple music player apps.
So far, I've really liked Phonograph, but I always keep a copy of Apollo. I'd love to see some updates.

Good stuff coming, needs some polishing, but I hope to release it this weekend.

Worst thing is that my mini jack broke and phone usb followed and I'm forced to use a goddamn 20$ mp4. At least it's somehow capable of reading big sdcards.

There's a small hold up. I moved to target sdk of marshmallow, thus I need to implement permissions on the fly or else it will crash on every start when launched on 6.0. Don't worry. It will be done.
