Federico Carnales Releases Uber Music, Now As Beta

The Uber Music app by Federico Carnales has now moved out of Alpha, and is now in the Beta stages. The entire UI is now made up of a skinning engine, so you can be sure that you’ll be seeing custom skins very soon for this app. Fede is always looking for people to let him know if they run into any bugs/issues, so let us know down in the comments section if you notice anything.

In my opinion it looks better than stock, has a widget, “lockscreen control”, and now you can make it look however you want. That’s #winning in my book. Is everyone liking this yet, or are we running a different music app? Let us know. 

Download Link | Changelog

    Can anyone provide me with a way to communicate with Fede?
    I have downloaded every Alpha and Beta version since he put this out, but have yet to get it open. Force Close EVERY single time.  I am on a rooted OG Droid, no custom ROM, and running LauncerPro+. Every other app I have runs without problems, but not Fede’s music app.

    Any (helpful) thoughts or help appreciated in advance.

    • Charlie

      I found the Music App forum at Launcher Pro Support, but if there is a Droid Lifer out there that can point my in the right direction to solve my issue, I’ll take it!

  • Ritesh Tripathy

    Okay, have been using this since Alpha1 (the Zune/Metro UI being the primary reason, I jut love the way it looks and works) and it was pretty basic other than the UI. I’ve used PlayerPro since day 1 with Android and tried every other decent music app on Android but PlayerPro gave me the audio quality of PowerAmp with a much better and functional UI, so stuck with it. That said, the metro UI just blows everything away! The Beta2 brought some stupid UI with it but glad someone already made a Metro skin and put it on Market, so not much lost there. Anyway, there’s no real reason for me to switch from PlayerPro unless this app connects to Google Music and plays lossless audio by itself and well at that. Just a cool interface on top of the stock Android player doesn’t sound very exciting to me!
    Btw, if you’re after absolute sound quality, check out andLess, its on the Market. Absolutely smokes everything else on pure audio quality. Of course, you, at the least, need to use a good pair of headphones to tell the difference. Sorry but those ear-mints just won’t cut it and are a pathetic way to listen to music if you asked me!Oh, I’m a studio engineer if that adds some credit to my opinion.. :)On a different note, I dropped LP+ months ago even though I paid money for it. Nothing even comes close to what GoLauncher EX does at the moment, its flawless and that team is simply amazing. GoSMS, again, the best messaging app on Android, by a country mile!So, I’m just waiting for whenever that LP+ rewrite sees the daylight to see whether it can out-do Go. If it does, then well, I already bought it, so will start using it too..

    I understand it is a copy of the windows music player, but it is a kick ass music player.  Happy to have it on my phone without having to have Windows 7 running the phone.

  • trevor-kai

    This is the best music app made. Its flawless as far as running goes. Its so smooth. And its gorgeous compared to the stock music player as well.

  • This player is actually more accurate to the Zune player on Windows Phone

    Tato, here is A BIG WTF to your taste in music 😀

    Also, what are the limitations within the android system that do not allow GAPLESS PLAYBACK? Apple’s been doing it for so long, I really hope it can be done. Albums just don’t sound right when the tracks are supposed to flow. Please try fede and I will buy the full version !

  • Thank god it didn’t replace the old version. now i have both. He needs to put a fast scroll.

  • Max

    reminds me too much of the music beta app i use google music beta so untill a third party app can use the streaming service i guess i will be using google music beta

  • he must have gotten that call from Microsoft…. bc that alpha was the biggest zuneHD copycat ever. but i downloaded this and the changes are nice.. he took the zuneHD look and feel and changed it up a bit… i like… but i like getting my plays and badges on my zuneHD so ill be listening to my music on that,

    but nice job FC you do good work.

  • Anonymous

    Yes! He finally changed the ui from wp7 to something useful and nice.

  • Rickcheslo

    It is a nice interface, but until it can list and play every mp3 and wma file in my music folder not just the ones I have recent bought it just plain sucks. I have hundreds of tracks I have ripped from my collection and dropped in the folder and it does not recognize them. Power Amp is the only app that weeks properly.I would purchase this outright if it worked for all my tunes.

  • I and also my pals were actually following the great hints on your site while the sudden I had a horrible feeling I never thanked you for them. My young men became as a result warmed to see them and have undoubtedly been having fun with these things. Thanks for really being well kind and then for deciding upon some fine issues most people are really eager to be informed on. My honest apologies for not saying thanks to you earlier.

    I want to use this as well but my quip is it doesn’t have very good shuffle control. No music app beats power amp in terms of ease of shuffle.

  • Anonymous

    I LOVE the look of this music player! It’s like I have a brand new 4.3″ Zune HD.

    Here are a few things it needs before I can finally switch:
    1) Swipe up/down to change folders. Left/Right to advance song. Just like Zune’s UI. Very easy to use.
    2) A very powerful equalizer much like PowerAmp. DSP and Tone controls to maximize sound range. 
    3) More options like Pause/Resume on headset disconnect etc. Album Art look up or download. 
    4) Features like fade/crossfade.

    Just needs to be more dynamic. It has a LOT of potential and can be a great player. I would even buy it for $10 bucks in the market if Fede nails this! Keep it up Fede!

  • I would like to point out my admiration for your kind-heartedness for persons who really want help on your subject matter. Your special dedication to getting the message throughout came to be extremely significant and has all the time helped associates like me to attain their goals. Your new warm and helpful instruction means a lot to me and far more to my peers. With thanks; from each one of us.

      Nevermind, It’s not like that any more. Boo. maybe the skins will do something about that.

    anyone ever think this is PART of the launcher pro update? kind of like how music app on sense integrates with home screen and lock screen?

  • Anonymous

    Needs to be linked with Google Music, and those pics for the artists are baller

  • Erick

    I’ll admit, I’ve been waiting/hoping for a real LauncherPro update for awhile.  Since I don’t know how much work is involved in it, I won’t comment on it or complain because I paid for what I got, and frankly, I like LauncherPro better than the Blur that came with my phone…

    That said, the fact that the LauncherPro update hasn’t come as ‘expected’, makes me unwilling to spend my money or even care for this app simply because he wrote it.  It is what it is.

  • Aaron

    I am enjoying his player, I think a totally skinable player is what will make this unique. I am sticking with the Alpha until I see themes available (I’m a sucker for that WP7 media UI). I haven’t had any problems, would like an equalizer. Google Music integration would be nice. (Is that even realistic?) Droid X, Go Launcher Ex, stock gingerbread.

    I love Fede but the “re-write” for Launcher Pro has already been taken care of. It’s called “GO Launcher EX” you can find it free in the Market. I don’t see how any re-write of LP could match what that team has done.

      It’s one of the only launchers I’ve tried that actually DOES restore home screen widgets. Unlike ADW and Launcher Pro I just got fed up with their crapware and all the redraws. 

      GO Launcher EX …. DOES everything you expect it to!

  • Anon

    I love the alpha version I am using. Cant wait to get the beta. The only issue I noticed it, sometimes it shows dbl of all my playlists with the duplicate playlist containing no songs.
    Not sure if this caused by the app or the motorola media link I use for my Droid on my mac.

    Your taste in music is awesome!!!

  • Ray

    does this music app sync your google music account?

  • Those complaining about some random dev out there not coming through on his promise of a rewrite just come off as bitter and pathetic.  You spent a few bucks on an app that still works just fine.  Stop being so dramatic and get a life.

    • Greatgambino37

      Since when is constant FC on Gingerbread “just fine”?

        I’m running gingerbread on my Droid with LP, no problems at all.

    • Anonymous

      Personally, I respect Fede’s ability to work on whatever he wants. BUT, he charged for that app and then apparently just dropped it after announcing miraculous improvements he has failed to deliver on. Now that he is developing a new app that he plans to SELL in the market…I think many customers will be reluctant to shell out more money until he shows that he will not just leave them high and dry with this new product.

    • Anonymous

      “Bitter and pathetic?”  You’re the one coming off as dramatic, friend.  When I buy something on a promise, I expect something in return, at the very least an explanation of what’s going on when it’s 9 months after the annoucement and nobody even knows if its still alive.  What’s so bitter and pathetic about holding a business (Yes, when you charge money for something that’s what you become) accountable?

  • T Hall

    I just want to jump on to Droid-Life and see something about the Bionic (or any other upcoming 4G Verizon device).  Come on Moto, you just got downgraded today!!!

  • I think fede should bring his tremendous skill to making a facebook app. Music is already a pretty crowded space

  • Google Music. 

    Why waste your energy making a inferior duplicate of what is already a superior product? 

    • Rain_king46

      Have you tried this app? I would argue that it is at least as good as the Google app. 

      • Anonymous

        It’s also better.

      • Anonymous

        I think the calls of allegiance for Google Music aren’t because it’s such an awesome music player, but rather because we have our libraries on Google’s servers and going to a player that can’t access that just isn’t an option anymore.

  • Rain_king46

    When/if Fede does release the LPP rewrite he should call it Chinese Democracy. All teasing aside, this is one of the best music apps currently on Android. Fede has the magic touch. 

  • Amenemhat1


  • Tiamaria

    I’m still bitter about fede promising a Launcher Pro re-write from scratch, teasing about how it was close to being done, then suddenly abandoning it. Then he pulls a Cyanogen on us and says “don’t ask for ETAs” – yeah, because he was promising something he was incapable of doing, but was hoping he’d luck into. And when he didn’t get lucky, he quietly dropped development, using the “don’t ask ETAs” policy as a buffer against people who have become angry with him for failing to deliver on his promise.

    Until Launcher Pro gets updated the way Fede said he was going to update it, I will troll him as often as possible.Besides, NOBODY wants this music app more than the thousands (millions?) of people who want a real LP update.Also, nobody cares about this because Google Music with cloud storage/streaming is 10x better (and, in my personal opinion, better looking – but I’ve never been one to think WP7-themed stuff was good looking).Fede isn’t an original artist, by the way. The only reason Launcher Pro ever looked good was because he used HTC Sense as a base (and still does) for all his graphics. Then he stole from Microsoft for this (absolutely stupid) music app.


    • Calculatorwatch

      I personally think he should just do a really shitty rewrite that makes it worse than the original. That way he’ll have kept his promise and no one will have anything to complain about. I don’t think it was a smart business move to promise a rewrite when he clearly wasn’t aware of the kind of work that was involved. But I also don’t care because I’m not one of the people that paid for something based on a promised improvement instead of something actually tangible.

    • Guest

      you have no idea what you’re talking about.  just because fede says he’s working on a rewrite, doesn’t mean he’s under any obligation to deliver or release anything to the public.  your sense of entitlement is sickening, you must be european.

      Ungrateful, stuck up, crying baby.

        No, I’m sorry, that’s just bullshit.  How in the holy mother of hell is expecting something that was we’ve been told was coming from a BUISNESS any different than expecting a 4G upgrade for the XOOM?  I get it, Moto is a massive corporation and Fede is one Dev, which is why so many of us have been willing to give him so much slack, but in principle, its the exact same thing. How would you feel if Motorola simply decided to not upgrade the XOOM to 4G when so many people bought it being told that it would?  When I’m told I’m getting something, and I pay money for it, I am going to hold that business accountable.  If you don’t believe in that, fine, but I’m sorry friend, thats how capitalism works. 
        It’s not like it even needs a damn rewrite, it’s just the fact that he told us there was going to be one and a many many people bought it on the assumption that he was going to deliever.  But no, oh no, god forbid we have this silly “sense of entitlement” that expects some smidgen of truthfulness and accountability from a dev, because it just sickens you doesn’t it?  Because expecting even an explanation, or a “Sorry, I bit off more than I could chew, it’s not gonna happen” is just too damn much for you isn’t it?  

        EDIT: Meant to reply to the guy above, but hey, the principle stll stands with your comment as well doesn’t it?

    • he doesn’t respond to any emails. He could give a rats behind about LP.

  • stu

    I have a feeling someone got contacted by MS about this.  not a fan of the beta.
    i have been using the ALPHA 7 as my daily music player and LOVE it.  will be keeping it around for a while.

    The only reason that I don’t use this, is because I love the sound that comes out of PowerAmp.  Otherwise, I would definitely use this.  I love the presentation that he has integrated.  

  • Rayman411vm

    If it would actually sync with zune I would be all over this… doubt that will ever happen

  • mtbhk44

    Running Power Amp and the Google Beta player.  No need for another music player that doesn’t do a whole lot else other than play music.  

    Not to be a little bitch, but where’s the LP rewrite already?  That’s where my money went – that’s what I’d like to see worked on!

  • Goblueboy

    I wish launcher pro worked correctly instead of this.

  • Your mom

    Nobody cares. I wonder how many folks have deleted LauncherPro recently, I know I have. 

    • Tiamaria

      I dropped LP months ago when it was evident he was incapable of delivering on his promise to update the app with 100% rewritten code (and supposed “massive” memory performance improvements). I’ve learned, Fede is an a**hole and a liar.

      • Anonymous

        LP is already super fast and one of if not the best alternative launchers available, what’s the big damn deal with rewriting it?  It’s not like it’s a total memory hog.

        Now, there are other things I don’t like about LP and Fede, like why the hell it fuking expires after awhile for no god damn reason.  That’s just idiotic.

  • Dwd3885

    This is dumb. the whole point of this app was because it looked like Windows Phone 7 music app.

    • TheAndroid1

      I’m guessing he got a letter from microsoft.

      • It’s a skin….

        • TheAndroid1

          The original app ran much deeper than just a skin.  The app has changed.

    • Shaun

      He pointed out on his Twitter a few weeks back that it’s being released like this and a Win7 skin will be released for it, so as to avoid any C&D’s from MS… Kind of like how Beautiful Widgets doesn’t look like HTC as much anymore but skins can be downloaded for it.

      • Dwd3885

        Ok, but then it’s no different than the many other music apps in the market.

        • But that’s it. It can be skinned, like LauncherPro. Don’t like the default skin? Make your own, or download another one.

      • Anonymous

        So where is the link to the skin???

    • AGREED! I was actually looking forward to moving all Android with an SD card when i outgrew my Zune HD, (should be 128GB cards by then… hopefully)… but I guess I will need to go back to the first plan, … getting a cheap WinPhone7 with no service just to use as my next music player. BOO.
      I could see if he didnt make that the default look, to stave off MS, but at least provide it as a settable skin/preference. BOO.

  • Needs to be synced with Google Music cloud libraries..then I’d use it..

    • WormDoes

      +1. Google needs to release their code already. While I love the cloud I hate that I can’t use it with any of the music apps I’ve already purchased.

      • I agree.  It’s such a powerful platform.  It seems silly not to release some sort of API.

        • My guess is we won’t see one until it goes live or at least is later into beta.

    • tjhrulz

      The moment it is it will become one of the most used hands down, but I do not believe there is an easy way to do this right now. The only way I can think of is through API, and I have yet to see anyone do anything close to this.

    • I want to use it bad but all of my music is on Google Music. 

      Really a shame.

    • I agree.  This would be my only suggestion.  I liked what I saw in the alpha stage.

      Blame Google.  Fede can’t do anything about that at the moment.  If only it were that easy.

      A great app, and was just released to the Market yesterday!
