Enjoy Music the Holo Way with NicePlayer

With Google Now’s introduction, came also the very cool Cards UI, which consists of individual, card-like panels. Then came its adoption by Google Play on both the Android app and website. Since then, we’ve seen numerous apps, themes, and even open source libraries embracing Cards UI with open arms. XDA Forum Member jlebeau‘s NicePlayer is one of them.

Still currently in beta, NicePlayer is quite representative of what Cards UI and Holo bring: simplicity. This means ease of navigation with its two-part interface, which consists of all your music categorized by artist, album, and song in a cards-like manner, and the currently playing panel. This also means a pleasing interface and graphic elements, and smooth-sliding panels and pages.

NicePlayer also has a couple of nifty features up its sleeves. One is the timer, which allows you to automatically turn off the music after a set time. Long pressing the album art brings up the ID3 tag editor, where you can change various details such as album and song title, artist, year, and track order. Missing artwork can be easily downloaded with the missing art function, which searches for and sets any album art that’s been detected as not being available.

Jlebeau’s done a commendable job with NicePlayer, especially considering its early stage. It’s compatible with any device running Android version 4.0 or greater. If you’d want to check out more of its features, be sure to visit the original thread and its beta testing G+ page for more information.
