Download: Fede Releases Updates to Alpha Music Player UberMusic

Fede released the first alpha edition of his new WP7-esque music app almost a month ago and is already up to version 7 as of today.  After thumbing through it for just a few minutes, you can tell that this is really turning into a solid and light music player (not that we weren’t expecting it to) even if he is calling it UberMusic. (Hah!)  He’s fixed a ton of stability issues, added more menus, tweaked the widget to work properly, and overall has made the experience much more enjoyable.  To stay up-to-date, you’ll want to grab v7 below.

Download:  UberMusic-Alpha7.apk

Changelog.

    i’m another one waiting for the lpp rewrite, just to say that even if this is a great music player i wouldnt consider buying it when its out of alpha/beta because it will loose support once another idea pops into fede’s head.

  • H Class

    Downloaded this app 2 days ago and have been using it heavily every since. Only thing missing is lock screen controls.

  • Shanklin07

    I like what he is doing here. I really like the metro look of Zune on Wp7 and this is something I have always wanted on Android. Someone else said it would be great if it integrated with Google Music and the 20gig cloud it gives you; I agree competely! But is that possible? I mean does Google allow this yet? Or will they make that possible?

  • rishi

    wow, so much, I don’t know what to call it…bitterness, maybe, over Fede’s pursuing UberMusic?  Its as if you’re suggesting LPP isn’t already a fantastic app.  Don’t piss on their parade if they want to do something else they really enjoy; its that doing something else that creates an ecosystem of excellent stuff.

    He should update LauncherPro to support landscape mode on keyboard out again…

  • Mauricio Sanchez

    Let me know when the LauncherPro rewrite is done. Until then… ADW EX it is, I guess.

  • Mothinrust

    This works great! The new features are awesome.

    GREAT APP.. Looks great! Functions Great! I would use this as my daily driver ….IF…. it could integrate with google music!  THIS LOOKS+ GOOGLE MUSIC CLOUD SYNCING= best player PERIOD!!

  • Mgault

    I really like his music player but i rally like shuffle.  I couldnt find a way to make it shuffle at all.  Am i just missing that

      Tap the album cover art and it opens up the repeat and the shuffle options.

    Who the hell is waka flacka flame? …….How about some Bloc Party!!!

      HAHA Man you just made my sh*t day all better with that comment!!

    Seems cool, but it does not see all my music.  Only the stuff preloaded on my Xoom or downloaded from Amazon.  None of stuff I ported over from my PC.  I cleared data from Media Storage since that worked for PowerAmp, but no go for UberMusic

  • Gfacekilla

    Being as I have no desire to cloud my music, this is the ultimate player for my needs. FeDe, keep up the excellent work.

  • Charlie

    I have tried Fede’s Music app through Beta 5, and now this one (v7).  I have yet to open the app on my rooted (no custom ROM) OG Droid.  I get a FC EVERY time I attempt to open the app.  Uninstall, reinstall, reboot, clear all cache, reboot, down a shot, reinstall…. same results each and every time; force close before opening.

    Any suggestions from the crew?

    • Charlie

      Anyone know how to contact Fede directly for suggestions on this issue?  (I assume nobody else is having the same issue that I am.)

  • Interstellarmind

    what say you all…’tis better than PowerAMP?

  • John

    WOW… Not bashing the app, but that’s a horrible name he chose

    I would use this today (and pay for a pro version) if it worked with Google Music Beta, but I’m now very much tied into that ecosystem.  I realize there’s no APIs yet for Google Music, but sadly this lovely music player is of no use to a large swath of users as a result.

  • Guest

    Looks amazing…but needs a few things before I switch from Power Amp. Gesture controls (swipe to switch tracks) and an Equalizer to name a couple.

    Imo this is the best music app on Android.

    I used it when it first came out and really liked it.
    Now I have Google Music, UberMusic would need integration with it for it to be of any value.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. I have decent music players, but I’m mainly interested in one that will integrate Google music, because I really don’t like Google’s default player.

    • Anonymous

      I agree or at least some cloud storage protocol for it to be worth while.  While I keep a lot of music on my phone I like to be able to grab a few things off the cloud when I want without switching apps.

    • Warr

      If I remember it correctly Fede did say that he will integrate it if the API came out.

  • http://www.facebook.com/franzvezuli Franz Vezuli

    Add Google Music Beta integration (Which I don’t is possible, I’m sure there’s no API’s for it yet) and I’ll use it! lol.

  • ChrisI

    I don’t know about you guys, but I really need to download these updates so I can get me some Waka Flocka Flame!!!

  • shamrockx

    ill stick with my google music and cloud like a ninja…if this was out a year ago i woulda used it sorry bud

  • Kierra

    Love , love , love the look of this music player.

  • Rain_king46

    Dear Fede,  I love ya dude, you are great at what you do. Please, Please, Please concentrate on Launcher pro plus.  I think Google finally has us covered on music with their beta.

    • http://twitter.com/mfg68 MFG

      Well said.

    • Guest

      Google needs to add many of the popular features found in third party apps like Power Amp and Player Pro before I’ll consider it a contender.

    • Anonymous

      Ehh I moved on to adw ex..got tired of the empty promises from fede. Launcher pro used to be my favorite but adw has ALOT of features.

      • http://profiles.google.com/chrisleighton3 Chris Leighton

        Lawl I got ADW EX too. Its quite glorious!

    • Rain_king46

      Having said that, this is a pretty badass app. I have said it before, if I am a Google exec, I am looking to hire Fede immediately. 

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, whatever happened to that promise of a complete rewrite of launcher pro?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dnarcisse David McSwagg Narcisse

    This has to be the best music player on Android so far..and it’s only an Alpha

    • Calculatorwatch

      Seconded, it’s like fede instinctively knows everything I’ve ever wanted from a music player that no other developers can seem to figure out

  • Anonymous

    Google’s music beta has solved all my needs and hopes for a great music player. This looks fantastic, and I love his work, but I wish it would have been around a year ago.

  • Anonymous

    Love LauncherPro, but I think I’ll stick with PowerAmp for music.

  • http://twitter.com/djduquet Jared Duquette

    Fede will eventually through your hope a safety line…

  • http://twitter.com/djduquet Jared Duquette

    How is the GUI of this app? 

    The new beta music with google on the OG Droid is so sodding laggy it’s killing me. 

    • Sruel3216

      just like lpp, no lag at all

  • Kdroidx

    Waaaaakkkkkkkaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665781964 Eric Gottlieb

    And with the release of UberMusic Alpha dies my hope of the LPP rewrite… :(

      Ah yes, the unwritten rule that developers can only work on one project at a time :P
      I forgot about that one.
