Spruce up Your Media Player with iSense Music
While the official Google Play Music application has a recently refreshed UI that many seem to love, and its compatibility with Play All Access makes it the ideal player for some, undoubtedly not everyone will be a fan of its aesthetics. Perhaps you don’t use the cloud or perhaps you’re not a fan of orange, but if for whatever reason you aren’t a fan of the Play Music app, you may want to check out XDA Forum Member SmoothApps‘s latest creation iSense Music.
iSense Music is certainly different, yet remarkably familiar. It takes cues from the media player seen in Apple’s iDevices as well as the one in HTC’s Sense. And the best part of its UI is that if you’re not a fan of its default looks, you can change them with theme support. In addition to its looks, it also has some useful functionality such as crossfade for seamless song transitions, equalizer support on Android 2.3 and greater, and you can even exclude folders from the app’s UI without having to create a .nomedia file.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
