Anyone familiar with the latest version of CyanogenMod knows about Apollo. It’s a music app created by developer Andrew Neal, and while it enjoyed a brief period of time being available exclusively to CyanogenMod 9 and 10 users he wants everyone to be able to enjoy the Holo-themed music player. That’s why you can find it in the Play Store starting today, and we couldn’t be any more happy about that.
Apollo’s list of features is chock full of goodness with things like home screen playlist shortcuts, themes, notification controls, lock screen widgets for devices on Jelly Bean 4.2 or higher, four different home screen widgets, gapless playback, lyrics, a wide range of audio formats and a ton more.
More will be coming down the line, including a tablet UI, Last.FM scrobbling, automatic artist and album info, the ability to specify your own folders for the player to look for media in and more. Users can get a free version, but that comes with ads and we’re sure you lot aren’t too crazy about that. Apollo+, a $.99 upgrade, removes those ads and also brings you updates quicker than the free version so you can get in on all the great new feature before those who’d rather not pay.
From my short time with the media player I can say that this isn’t the end all, be all music experience to have across any platform, but you can do a whole lot worse and it’s worth a download to see this beautiful app in action. Find the free version in the Play Store here, and be sure to find Apollo+ here.
