    Translucent media player controls?

    Hi all,

    Just curious if anyone knows of a media/music player for Android that has transparent/translucent background? The default player is a big black bar across my pretty screen.

    Looking for a widget that I can put on my lock screen ideally.

    Thank you!

    You might look at Pure Music Widget - it will work in conjuction with the stock media player and it is skinnable...if you are using Widget Locker, Executive Assistant, or other 3rd party lock screen then you would be able to add to the lock screen...

    Yeah I am using widget locker, so I'm good there. Unfortunately Pure Music Widget is getting pretty low scores/reviews, and the screenshots the author has don't really make it appear like something I want to use exactly. If there were a light version I'd try it to see, but difficult to justify purchasing an app that I may have no need for at all. :\

    Regardless, thank you for the response.

    You have 24 hours to try the app out. If you don't like it, just refund it.

    Found an app that does exactly what I want... free even. Flip

    Has a widget that has both a glass and a transparent background. Very basic, but then again so is the stock music player... and really has everything I would use it for anyway.

    Thx for the replies all..

    SS

    Here we go:


    Flip does have a "transparent" option too, which just shows the controls and song titles... I chose the "glass" look since it matches the clock/weather widget I have above on that screen.

    Now I just need to get myself a black notification bar and this won't look quite so garrish...
