Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Top Player for WM Released
If I had to describe one of the most annoying issues in the WM platform, it would have to be the inability to control music while using other apps. Regardless of the media player being used, the user has to leave whatever he or she is doing in order to skip to the next song, stop playback, or resume it. The days of this being an issue are close to being over thanks to XDA member yossio, who brings us his latest app called Top Player. This music player gets its name for a very obvious reason, it stays on top of whatever app you have running at the time. In essence, it doesn’t matter if you are using your favorite GPS program, writing e-mails, or using Excel. You will always have a set of controls for music playback. The app is still in development, but promises to be a “top” contender in the media player wars.
