Control Your Music Anytime with Floating Music Controls

Have you been in the situation where you fancy listening to some music while you’re immersed in a game, reading, or typing an important document on your Android device? Having to exit your current app to either go to the music widget or music app just to press play is annoying and impractical. This is a problem XDA Forum Member TraberSoftware ventures to mend.

TraberSoftware introduced on the XDA Forums an app called Floating Music Controls, an independently developed floating app that comprises of music controls hovering over any open app and screen. Upon start up, a simple app logo can be seen in the corner of the screen, which upon being touched, expands into a bar displaying play/pause, previous and next selections. The configurations menu allows the opacity of the floating app to be adjusted and position of the expandable icon in one of the four screen corners. A persistent notification in the pull-down notification area can be toggled on or off, and the floating controls can either be hidden with a shake of the device or ‘timed out’ after five seconds.

Floating Music Controls is a minimalist and practical app that serves a much needed function for music listeners. Working with Android versions 2.1 and newer and available for free in the Play store, make sure to head over to the original thread for more details.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
