CyanogenMod 9 Will Have Custom Music Player, Fully Theme-able
The ICS-based CyanogenMod 9 will include some custom apps, such as the Trebuchet launcher, but also an improved, fully theme-able music player. Besides being included in CM9, it will also be released as a standalone application in the Android Market.
Andrew Neal, a developer working on the music app, recently told The Verge some of the planned features: You’ll be able to perform custom actions by shaking your device, customize the controls in the notification shade, and more. Probably the best feature is that the app will have a “full theme engine”, so our themers and designers in the forums can get to work on it once it’s released. Yay!
