Today I've finished the first revision of my Music Widget. It's already published on Android Market for everybody (owning an SGS) to try.
What's this all about?
- Samsung Galaxy S lacks a music widget (which would allow to control the music player), as opposed to stock Android. SGS has a kind of widget available when the phone is locked instead.
- Samsung Galaxy S has a customized music player, which is incompatible with the stock Android music player.
- The stock Android music widget (available for phones lacking it through Market under the name "MusicWidget+") is not compatible with Samsung Galaxy S.
The widget is intended to fix this - it works on Samsung Galaxy S (I haven't tried other Samsung phones or tablets).
To install the widget, enter the following search phrase into the Android Market app:
and select the 'Galaxy S Music Widget' app.
The widget source code is available at:
If you have any problems with the widget (crashes or strange behavior) or would like to suggest any changes/improvements - just let me know and I'll do my best to release updates as quickly as possible.
