Music VU Visualizer Widgets

Music VU Visualizer Widgets


Music VU gives you beautiful and dynamic level, wave, and spectrum displays for your music, right on your home screen. Works with any music player on your phone or tablet (with some Android-imposed limitations on newer devices, see below). You can place a variety of meters and visualizers anywhere on your home screen. Change colors, mix them up, resize/enlarge, or use more than one side-by-side for greater impact.

All segmented meters feature classic digital styling and a high-resolution first meter segment. In addition, specialty spectrum analyzer and waveform displays give you unique ways to visualize your music. Premium spectrum and waveform displays are free for a 7 day trial period (VU level meters are always free).

To find the visualizer widgets go into your apps list “Widgets” section and look for “Music VU”. On some devices long-press an empty part of your home screen to access widgets. To make widgets big, long-press and resize in both directions.

Note: This is an advanced widget app which uses special techniques to update quickly. Due to limitations in the way Android widgets work you should have a fairly fast phone or tablet for good performance. You may still notice irregular or slow updates. Avoid using more than 5 or 6 visualizer widgets at the same time. To minimize CPU and battery usage Music VU is not active unless your screen is on and music is playing.

Note: There's a bug in some Galaxy S4 models (but not others) which breaks visualizers, including Music VU. Also visualizers may not work with some music players on newer phones with KitKat/Lollipop like like Nexus 5 due to bugs in the OS, we are working on possible workarounds so stay tuned. For now a different player may work, try Google Play Music or doubleTwist player. If you have any problems, for example your combination of Android device and music player doesn't work, please email support at [email protected] We'll try to help resolve your problem.

Note 3 Visualizer is very choppy even on normal rate which is kind of a let down. Hope you can improve it though

Barely "works" I could only get it to do something with the stock player, and it isn't what I would consider usable. Just don't bother.
