Market description:
You can't disagree that ICS lockscreen music control is a really convenient thing.
But have you ever thought about being able to control your music from anywhere?

If yes, then this application is just for you.
This is basically a music control widget you see on the lockscreen, except you can launch it anywhere.
And you can change it's size - make it huge, or make it tiny. Tuck it in the corner, or place it right in the middle of the screen.

WARNING: For this application to work your player have to support standard ICS lockscreen controls. Those players include but are not limited to:
Poweramp, Droidsound, Yandex.Music


To close the widget, double tap it. To resize it, pinch it out or in.
You can launch this app by the regular shortcut or the same way you launch Google Now.


Now, letter trom the developer(from me ):
As this app implements exactly the same interface as 4.0+ lockscreen music controls, it is obviously unable to control players which don't support 4.0+ lockscreen controls. However, my other app, Quick Control Dock, is able to control some players which doesn't support lockscreen controls.

This app is and will be totally free. No annoying ads. But if you will suddenly feel generous, please consider a donation

This seems like a very good idea and I am tempted to give it a shot! One thing I like so far is that it has to ability to be closed!!

The other floating apps out there stay on the screen, sure it minimizes icons placed on peoples homescreens, but when I am reading something and have to constantly move something around to keep reading, it gets rather annoying!

Well...nothing about shape, but you can change it's size by pinching it.

Lol well, so far love it. Light, simple, quick to respond. 2 devices, both mostly stock, rooted 4.1.2 Moto Razr xt912, RAZR HD XT 926.

My only suggestion / request would be; open app on single tap of artwork.

Customizable colors would be appealing, but not at their cost of the lightweight feel.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you!

About opening app - it's a good idea, and it will be really easy to implement as I've already done exact same thing in my Quick Control Dock.
I'll do it.

Okay, I'm off to code some features you requested
Think I'll finish in one or two hours.

Only one question - should the app close itself when you open current player by tapping album-art?
