The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
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

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
