Know The Song At All Times With Tune Pop
XDA member rbtconsultants came up with the perfect solution to the eternal quest of not having to do anything with your device and yet get every last bit of interaction with it. Well, it may be a bit of an exaggeration but this app is still rather neat. If you are listening to music, the app basically will display a pop up window with the name of the song and the artist on your device, regardless of the app that you are using at the moment. You could be browsing the web, trying to find directions to your friend’s house, or anything really, and the app will pop up each time the song changes, giving you the information that you need.
Please provide some feedback for the dev to see if the app can be improved.
Do you use your Android phone with GPS Navigation while playing music in your car?
When a new song starts, ever wonder what that song is, or who the artist is?
Now you have to grab the phone and look at it and swipe the notification bar, just to see what the song is or who the artist is?.
Do you use your Android phone to read email, or browse the web while listening to music in the background?
You know it’s a hassle to stop what you’re doing to see what the name is of the song that just came on. It’s all too much trouble, so you don’t bother, and you just keep wondering.
Tune Pop is the answer! Tune Pop will pop up the Song Title and Artist name, as a toast popup. Now when a song starts or resumes you will be alerted with the title and artist of the song.
You can find more information in the application thread.
