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:

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
