nexus one 2.1 music app ported to android 2.0.1

bringing you another android 2.1 application!  the latest release to hit our android 2.0.1 devices is the nexus one music app which is a nice upgrade to the current droid music program and easily worth checking out.

this music app isn’t ground breaking like the launcher or flan gallery were, but it’s definitely better than the current music app on your motorola droid device.  it adds a slightly different setup while making functionality and ease of use so much nicer.

new stuff:

  • 4 tabs (artists, albums, songs, playlists) across top of app for smoother transitions.
  • background image of album while playing
  • current song bar always displayed in bottom of app

steps for installation:

1.  go into settings -> applications and check the “unknown sources” box.
2.  visit this post from your phone’s browser.
3.  tap and download this file onto your phone:  MusicInstallable.apk   (alt link)
4.  tap on the downloaded application once it has finished.
5.  install it and tap “open” when finished.
6.  tap “artists” tab, check defaults box, and select Music (com.android.musik).
7.  repeat steps for all 4 tabs in music app.
8.  done!
