Using the Play Store testing system too… I am blown away!

My only complaint is to change the media controls to match existing media controls/Play Music theme.

I recommend the halo of by default with an option in a settings menu for music to turn on.

The notification for the music controls does not need to be on when inside the app.

For music, the OS has an album art style music widget with unexpanded controls and more controls when expanded, but does not take up as much space like the image notification does.

That also would add the Holo lockscreen media player controls and display album art on the lockscreen as well.

Inside, put that album art front and center like your Play Music theme (animations not necessary =P).

When in the full player, the queue button should hide the album art instead of the menu and the popup for the queue as per Play Music.

Swiping the album art and mini player left and right should correspond to next and previous tracks. Dragging up on the mini player should open the player and dragging the album art should bring the full player down.

Thanks for letting users test it!
 
I'm testing the app. So far I'm not having issues concerning playback, however, after tapping the album icon, pressing either the Home or the Back button will not close the window. The only way is to re-tap the icon or tap outside (however there are only few pixels). It would be nice to hide it with the Back button. Also, for now, there's no search option (which makes a little troublesome to search song on Ex.fm). Also, everytime you tap Jolidrive in the notification panel, it automatically goes to Box and not either the song or the last used service.
Last thing, there's no way to quit. Even when no song is playing, the icon remains in the notification area and in the task manager. The only way is to force close.
 
Other than fixing the controls, the app is perfect! Great job with using the whole Play Music style of a music player. Very impressed!
 
The Soundcloud feature is better than the official Soundcloud app in my opinion! Well done, brilliant app!
 
You should keep up the great work. I'm a new tester of this app. And the player it's amazing. Please don't leave it :-( (Disculpen si escribí algo mal)
