I like the new music controls in the main page of Dashdroid. But In the case of smartphones with 4" or 4.5" screens the buttons are still quite small. I would prefer to get rid of the album art and make the buttons bigger instead.

I mean if I want to display the album art, I would rather open the music app completely. Wouldn't you?

I made some changes in latest beta(last night) any thoughts? I'm this music player I don't have a Swype to change musing, you need use the buttons, and no song search, so you think it's a deal breaker? Or was better before ? Please let me know :)

Also cLock (by CM) use Y!Weather, there's no problem in cLock. Since I use Car Dashdroid for little car trip seems it doesn't update weather.

Hey +ZeN KuN 

Just a mock-up I made but for something I think could be a nice interface for music controls and newer card layout. Let me know what you think. Just an idea that was in my head that I wanted to get out there.

Is there anyway to tap into the feed that Maps is now providing to Android Wear? A small display showing what would be on the watch would be cool:

I love the app, but my biggest issue is that it still runs in the background even after I "close" it.  The only way I can truly exit the application is to go to "App Info --> Force Stop".  No task management apps can even close it (such as Clean Master or Battery Doctor).  When it runs, it really drains the battery and the Force Stop process is not convenient. Let me know if there is a way to truly end the app in the background or if this is something you can fix.

I have Car Dashdroid start when it detects my car's Bluetooth and goes back to Nova Launcher when I walk away from the car. Works flawlessly.

I was more talking about art and playback control from the main screen. I love this app and this is the only issue that I see missing. I use different apps for different content and media utilities handles whatever is currently being used.

If your app could act as a launcher it would be cool as it could support widgets. Also I was envisioning making the dock taller and putting audio control widgets for Pandora, Beyondpod, Play Music, Spotify and just carousel them independently of the other buttons / pages. Your music / podcast control can stay persistent when swiping through the pages, and you could swipe to select which widget stays persistent.

Thanks for a great app. Really appreciate the work you've put in. On my Galaxy Note 3 when the app is running I don't see the multi-screen tab to pull out the side bar. I hold down the back arrow button and it still doesn't appear. It returns once I've exited the app. Google Navigation has the same problem only in the navigation screen but not in the regular Google maps main page. Might be related.

+ZeN KuN the circle around the dialer button is missing for light theme.

In dark theme the circle is white as well. Not sure if this was intensional or not.

well, the dialer color, i changed now :D looks awesome ( i share to n3zdroid so take a look)
yeah i need align the *, yes, transulcent its the next and contacts "action" so in contacts you can one click call or send sms or something ;) but transluscent its kind of pain in the ass because compatibility :s
i will check so maybe it will only work for 4.4 but i need to see how will work on pre devices.

+ZeN KuN Actually you can use generic controls like the AVRCP/Headset profile. Just an idea. So far good job!

Here were some ideas I had to clean it up and make it ready for Android 4.5
I used the cards UI and overflow dots from Google+ & YouTube
I suggest using date preference for the order (for example, if the preference is MM/DD/YYYY you know to put month before day)
I suggest greying out or outlining wi-fi and Bluetooth if they're turned off, for toggle
I suggest a new icon for day/night switching. 
I suggest trying to use the xxxhdmi icon for the apps chosen
Let me know if you need me to generate some assets, I'd love to.

Can you change between day and night view as Google Maps do (based on the real sunset and sunrise)?

Thanks for the great app - it's exactly what I was looking for and by far the best kind available.  I just left a 5 star review, and paid to upgrade.

I have one little feature request I hope you'll consider at some point... I don't need/want a speedometer on the main screen, and if you turn it off that area is just left blank.  Could we possibly have a secondary option?  --maybe a full size compass?  ...not sure what else would work well there.
