CyanogenMod’s Highly Customizable Apollo Music App Hits Google Play

Users of CyanogenMod will recognize Apollo as the baked in music player that is featured throughout their ROMs. This morning, it has officially hit Google Play for anyone to download, and features some very cool options that could certainly replace any other player you currently use. For example, it has the look and feel of Google Music, while also providing lots of options such as lyrics support, custom themes, and also the ability to pin full albums/playlists to your homescreen for easy access.

There are a ton more things you can do, so check it out if you’re looking to get the most out of your mobile music player.

  • Poweramp is hands down the BEST music player available for Android.

  • Richard Butt

    Too bad it automatically downloads low resolution artwork, which looks like crap on my rezound. They need to add an option to download higher resolution images or one to disable downloading them at all.

  • its noticeably smoother scrolling around the app and more responsive

  • johnc7995

    This is awesome, way better then the Google Play Music App. If only it could play my music from the cloud. Ashame.

    • Google hasn’t opened the ability to use their Cloud Music service yet… that’s why no app but Google’s own Play Music is able to access your Cloud content.

  • are there swipe/double tap player controls?

  • Nathan Corachea

    is this the exact same as the apollo that comes when you install CM on your phone? or is this updated or anything?

  • Give Google Music support and it might be worth a look. If not, nothing really beats Google Music at this point. More of an amazing service, and not just an app.

    I really liked it, until they removed the ability to easily delete a track that was currently playing. So, I went through the trouble to get Google Music working in Canada, and now I can’t use anything else. I have too many android devices, and too big of a library to keep on my devices. I may use it if it gets Google Music support in the future.

    Anyone else have issues downloading from Google play ?

  • dean2359

    I’m using”3″. I think it has the best sound of any music app out there. Does Apollo have an EQ?

    • Tom

      Neuron has the best IMHO. Horrible UI though, which is unfortunate. Second to Neuron is Poweramp. Poweramp has quite nice UI.

    • PuzzleShot

      there’s an EQ option in the menu but whenever I clicked it, nothing happened.

  • Tom Z

    Google needs to open the API for Google Music. I play all my music from the cloud.

    • TheWenger

      This x 1000

  • ummmm… hasn’t been out for a while?I thought for sure i was able to download it a couple months back. there wasn’t a paid version back then, and maybe it was “beta” but it was in the Play store i am almost certain.

    • PuzzleShot

      I know that there was once a beta built from source that someone had uploaded as Apollo but it wasn’t published by Andrew Neal, the creator.

  • I miss the Music Player that Motorola were using all the way up until the Razr Maxx/HD. Simple and it worked great. I’m using Player Pro now as I HATE Google Music Player (doesn’t allow for cueing where I can FFWD and still hear bits of the track for finding my way through commercials in Podcasts and Radio Recordings.)

    • Player Pro is the best music player out there. I’ve been using it for a few years. It is very customizeable.

      • Matthew Merrick

        amen to that

  • Will this work on a mac?

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Will what work on a Mac? The Android specific music player?

      • Yea

        • hatboysam

          No, it won’t. Android phones only.

          • :sigh: too easy (btw, no use being sarcastic when your name is Dr. Buttballs, seriously)

          • hatboysam

            Well I was just being helpful. Glad you’re happy with that “trolling”

          • Dr_Buttballs

            I wasn’t being sarcastic, I was actually curious. Also, that was a weak “troll”.

          • johnc7995

            You do realize there is a difference between pretending to be an idiot and waiting for a response and trolling.

          • ugh, this is what i get for not signing out from a shared PC… (to answer your question, no pretending, no trolling, just a real idiot apparently).

  • Adam

    This is the only music app I use for local music. Ownage.

  • Can apollo connect to my google play music library?

    • Dr_Buttballs


      • zepfloyd

        Yea no API for that.

      • Not A Name

        Thats a shame. Google needs to open the API

  • Liquidretro

    For a free music player, I am pretty impressed with this.

  • Can it connect to my google play music library?

    • Dr_Buttballs

  • Can it play music from Google Music’s cloud or just local tracks?

    • Andrew Denniston

      Just local tracks. Google hasn’t released the API for Google Music.

    • Just local.
