One-Click and the Simplification of Technology–Is This a Good or Bad Thing?

ompa

Here on XDA-Developers, we tend to cater to everyone’s needs and wants. From the most experienced developer to the newest user, who literally just picked up his/her smartphone exactly 25 minutes ago and is curious about what it can do, anyone can find something that will get them hooked on xda and smartphone modding. The latter of the two groups normally tends to either be too busy to try and sit down and read or simply is not interested on how things work, only caring about the final outcome (I can haz root?!).

Windows Phone 7 is often looked at as a lesser-OS by those with Android devices, and many times that is because the WP7 devices lack the full Google integration found on Android handsets. And with the growing reliance on all things cloud, apps like Google Music can be a daunting task through the mobile browser.

Thanks to XDA Recognized Developer snickler, you can now have a dedicated WP7 application for Google Music. His application is called CloudMuzik and is now on the Windows Marketplace.

CloudMuzik is a Google Music player made to work specifically for WP7 phones. I got tired of trying to listen to Google Music through the browser since the interface is ugly and it doesn’t know how to switch to different
