CyanogenMod 9 Music App Coming To Market
Good news for the CyanogenMod fans, a new music app is coming to the market soon!According to the author of the application, and there’s a degree of customization that you won’t find in any other Music app in the Android Market.
You will be able to get a lot of info for the currently playing song at the push of a button, share what track you’re listening to with all your social apps, set your favorite song as ring tones, delete unwanted tracks, and search your music from anywhere in the app.
It´s all about customization, you may select a custom lock screen allowing designers to touch every UI element in the app. Every drawable (images, backgrounds, etc), all text views, and each seek bars can be themed using the theme engine. In a few words it´s a revolution of what we are used to have in the actual limited music apps.
The music app will be available in the Market over the next couple of weeks and the team is still looking for a name, so if you have suggestions those are welcome. Of course it will be included on the expected update in CyanogenMod 9.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
