CM9's New Stock Music Player made by Andrew Neal is available for all on CM9. Based off of Android's Stock Music Player with many added features has finally come, with three different versions available once it hits the Android Market.

#1 CM9 Upstream Version

#2 Android Market Version (Free) with ads that shouldn't be in the way. For those not on CM9.

#3 Android Market Paid Version without ads and extra features not currently announced by Andrew Neal.

This topic is entirely about an App, and has been brought to the general section to you by me as it is great news and well worthy of this section until your FNMs see fit to relocate it to the App Section.

Edit: This is not to be confused with the unamed public beta version released by Andrew Neal in Jan-Feb, it's come a long way since then with one of the most beneficial changes being the memory hog issue being rectified, enjoy.

Expect this on our next Beta/RC of Epic's next CM9.. it's been merged to CM9 upstream.

On Andre Neal's blog, seeing pixels, he has the CM9 Apollo standalone apk, a theme template, and also the black theme, it can be found on the market though, just search for apollo black theme

I have a m3u playlist on my SD-card. I go under playlists, choose my playlist and press the corner-menu button and choose shuffle all. It starts playing. It responds to htc hands-free next-pause-play-revious buttons. So everything seems superb, but suddenly instead the next song I hear my recorded calls. This happens with the original htc Player too. I use latest Android revolution HD on my Sensation XE and the latest Bricked kernel, which supports two-sided call recording and offers a nice Call recorder app. Even if I could hide the call recordings, its still strange and very odd, that it starts playing audio files that are not included in the chosen playlist.

I suggest you do the trick people once thought to be a bug, simply add .nomedia to the folder that has your call recordings and they won't be taken into account.

Oh wow!

When I first tried this I thought "Pssh the old CM9 music is still way better!"

And in a lot of ways it is, but after playing with this for almost an hour I am impressed.

Swiping the bottom bar to the left to reveal pause/next/shuffle/repeat is awesome. Long-pressing the name of the track on the bottom bar brings up the play list it's in as an overlay. Which is awesome.
Swiping in the now playing screen to see the playlist is awesome.
The search functionality is highly improved. So awesome.
It's much faster and uses a lot less RAM.

It does lack some functionality, which I know is coming in future versions.
The now playing screen needs to be improved. Tapping on artist isn't as responsive or a visible as it should be.
I need a scrolling bar in the artist and albums tab.
And letters in the ones that do have it.
There is no landscape mode. Minor complaint.
The white theme is awful. Download the black one.

At this point it's debatable which one I like more. The old CM9 music had a lot more to offer at the price of instability. MIUI's is nice too. I wish they'd make that available to all like MIUI home.
