With every new major Android release, there will be a new version of CyanogenMod, the most popular custom Android ROM – it has recently surpassed one million users. CyanogenMod usually adds features for power users, by tweaking some of the stock apps, such as the launcher, browser, camera and so on.
Now with version 9, corresponding to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, there's another addition to the stable of improved apps: the music player. While CyanogenMod 9 has not been released yet, you can get a sneak peek at its new music app right now, provided you're on the latest version of Android 4.0.
The custom CyanogenMod 9 music app improves upon the standard one with features such as shake and flip actions, different homescreen widgets, customizable controls in the notification shade, the ability to share the currently playing track to social networks, and a theme engine that will allow designers to modify the look and feel of the app beyond of Ice Cream Sandwich's standard Holo theme.
Once ready, the app will of course be included in CyanogenMod 9, but it will also be made available through the Android Market for those who do not wish to flash a custom ROM. If you're impatient, however, you can already download the APK from Seeing Pixels. The developer has also mentioned that they're in search for a proper name for the new app, so feel free to chime in with your own suggestions in the comments below.
