basicPlayer


This app offers simple music playback wrapped in an easy to use user interface. You can easily create your own playlists or simply play all your songs in a random order.

I created this app basically for myself, as I wanted an easy to use player wihtout a bloated user interface, high memory and cpu consumption or lots of required permissions. I uploaded it to the market as I thought that others might find it useful.

This player requires to read the phone state to stop music playpack for an incoming call. Additionally it sends broadcasts to update the current song displayed in the player.

If you like the app but miss some functionalities or found a bug just write me a comment and I'll see what I can do.

Repeat and Shuffle work a little bit different for this player:

- If you hit shuffle not your playback but your playlist is shuffled, so you can see whats coming up next and remove unwanted entries. You can also save your shuffled playlist if you like it.

- You can't choose repeat or repeat all explicitly. Repeat all is always on, so your playlist will be played from the beginning if its last song was played. To repeat one song simply add it to an empty playlist and hit play.

Recent changes:
- Drag and Drop support for the Playlist, simply grab the track number and drag the song to the desired position

- Headset button support (experimental), to play/pause and next/previos song, unfortunately I have no headset with buttons so I was unable to test this, please write me if it is not working as expected

Easy navigation, lack of options Very easy to use, but the lack of options and lack of a progress bar mean it's not for me.

Love it :D just hope to have an additional feature of listing songs by song title rather than album, or make it a choice.
