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!

But for the most part, the awe has vanished. There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
