Take Charge of Your Music with Floating Music Controls
There are plenty ways of controlling your favorite music player. Probably the most common way is through your standard lock screen widget. These allow you to easily skip, repeat, or pause your songs without unlocking our devices. However, we don’t always listen to our music with our screens locked.
Of course most media players also allow us to control playback via our notification tray, but that’s not always ideal either. XDA Senior Member Flextrick presents Floating Music Widget, which as its name implies, allows users to change songs over any application.
While still in beta, it offers lots of customization options, such as the ability to change the transparency, size, and the position of the floating widget. A few things don’t work, but hopefully they will be fixed in future releases. Using the app is pretty easy. Just start your favorite music player, and the controls appear after swiping towards the center of the screen from a predefined location.
If you want to try out this app and leave your feedback for the developer, head over to the application thread and give Floating Music Widget a shot.

Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
