Apollo music player finally detaches from CyanogenMod, lands in the Play Store for everybody
Those of you who are running one of those sweet CyanogenMod ROMs are no doubt aware of its excellent music player, Apollo. 

Now the feature-laden app has been extracted from the safety CM nest, and pushed onto the Play Store for every Android handset to enjoy.

The reason this is exciting is not the eye candy, there are more startling music player visuals out there, but the sheer impressiveness of the feature list. 

Apollo includes:

  • Pinning album, artist, genre, and playlist shortcuts to your Home screen
  • Customizable themes and layouts
  • Lyric support
  • Mark songs as favorites
  • Notification playback controls (Honeycomb+)
  • Text and voice search
  • Swipe between screens
  • Automatic album and artist image fetching
  • Headset controls
  • Set songs as ringtones
  • Lockscreen widgets (Jellybean 4.2+)
  • Share currently playing music on Twitter, Facebook, and others
  • 4 widgets
  • Gapless playback
  • Plays most music formats (MP3, AAC, FLAC, etc.)
  • Drag & drop playlists and queue
  • Lockscreen controls (Ice Cream Sandwich+)
  • Local music management (edit, delete, etc.)

What the future will bring to Apollo is promised tablet-tailored interface, Last.fm scrobbling, concert info, sleep timer and widgets that can be customized at your wish. Knowing the productivity of the CyanogenMod crew, new features should be added pretty quickly. Check it out from the source link below, and if you are annoyed by the ads, there is a $0.99 paid version that removes them.
