Use LauncherPro to Control Android’s Music Player – Introducing Remoter

You’ve all been there. You are listening to music on your Android device and you don’t have the widget on because it occupies too much real estate on your screen (takes precious space away and prevents you from using a large widget that you cannot install elsewhere). On top of that, since you are using LauncherPro, out of the 15 slots available for shortcuts, you are only using a few. That is where Remoter, made by XDA member Rock_Harder, comes in handy.

Remoter is a set of small apps that are really controls for a particular music player. They work like toggle switches in the sense that they exist for one particular function. You have options to play, pause, next, previous and a couple of other ones. The best part is that since they go in LauncherPro’s dock, you will not need to use any of your desktop space to place them as widgets. Future releases will be compatible with other players as well.

As i wanted to control my music via LauncherPros Dock i created a few small apps to do it, Play/Pause, Next and Prev. Track, Shuffle and Repeat are actually working. At the moment it only works with the Stock Android Music Player, but further support for other music player apps will be included when it hits the market.

I have planned another app to show the actually playing track in a toast popup, but thats not ready at all.

As far as i know it should also work with widgetLockers custom sliders, in folders, with the more icons widget and so on, everywhere where an app is possible to be started.

I attached the apps, they are only signed for approx 90 days(from the 23rd on), cause its only a test package, there are no icons, but will be done when it is released to market…

Remoter is only a working title

You can find more information in the application thread.
