Simplify Your Music Experience in Android with Just Music
Music players have evolved through the years, and their user interfaces with them. The UI in some of these has gotten overly complex as they have controls that will allow users to do more than just play music. XDA member mrodlies decided that it was time to roll this complexity back a few notches and came up with this simplistic (almost Zune look-alike) music player concept for Android. The app’s name is still being thought of, but it matches the concept of the player rather well as it is very light and more focused on the music than on the UI itself.
The player is still under development, but if you like the idea and think that you can help bring this concept to life, please drop by the thread and talk to the dev.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
