Floating Music Controls with Beat Player
A device’s music player is one of the most important apps for almost everyone. This is because most of us love music and listen to it on various mobile devices and in various places. However, finding a good, free player is not an easy task. And finding a free and innovative player is almost impossible.
XDA Senior Member dakdroid came up with some interesting ideas and created an innovative player: Beat. The application uses floating controls similar to Facebook Chat Heads. Because of this, a small control panel is always visible, no matter which application is opened in the foreground.
The floating control panel is not its only unique function. In the era of cloud services, many of our songs are kept on Dropbox or Google Drive. Beat can stream the music directly from the above. Furthermore, not all free players have equalizers and visualizations. Beat has them, and allows you to select or create a preset to get the most out of your favorite music. The application uses Metro-styled tiles, which are fully customizable. Different list styles, colors, and sizes can also be selected.
Make your way to the application thread and give it a shot. Don’t forget to provide your feedback in the thread.

HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates.
