My Cloud Player 9 for SoundCloud Brings Local Audio Playback and More!

We first talked about the alternative SoundCloud client My Cloud Player by XDA Senior Member dcucko back in October of last year. My Cloud Player was originally written to provide SoundCloud users with functionality that was unavailable in the official SoundCloud app. The aesthetically appealing player offered the ability to chart your most played songs, view your playback history, cache tracks for offline playing, Last.fm scrobbling, and more.

Between its original launch and now, My Cloud Player has evolved quite a bit, adding features such as Chromecast and XMBC support. But now, My Cloud Player has been updated to version 9, and with this update come many more goodies. Perhaps the most notable change is the ability to play local audio files, rather than just audio from SoundCloud.  This local audio playback support has also been extended to the Chromecast, using the NanoHttpD library. In addition, playlist support has been improved, allowing users to save remote, local, cached, and downloaded tracks together—all in one playlist. Finally, the app has been optimized in terms of performance, memory usage, and bug fixes.

If you’re looking for a great (and free) media player that can handle your SoundCloud and local media content, head over to the application thread and give My Cloud Player a shot.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
