Phantom Music Control Updated to Support More Music Players!
A little while ago, Egzthunder1 brought you news regarding a particularly space conscious music widget intended to bring some style to your lock screen. Unfortunately, it didn’t support too many music players back then. Now, it looks like XDA forum member Johny_G‘s minimalistic music widget has been updated, adding support for everyone’s favorite media player / syncing solution doubleTwist among others.
In the words of the developer:
I have switched from Sense to CyanogenMod, and I just hated its lockscreen. So I installed WidgetLocker, and set it up so it looks and behaves like HTC Sense lockscreen. However, I missed some decent music control, because all the widgets made me start playback in my pocket when I did not wanted to. So I just coded my own widget able to hide itself when there is no active playback. It is kinda possible (but definitely not probable), that someone else will use my widget, so I put some settings and HTC Sense support in it.
Supported Music Players:
- Stock and Modified Android Music Player
- HTC Sense Music Player
- Eliot Stoker’s Music MOD

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
