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.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
