I love Poweramp's lock screen, I just wish it would stay in place. Most of the time after I pause the music using my headset button the lock screen switches back to the default Android lock screen. So to start the music again I have to unlock my screen and use the widget to push play. It would be so much easier if the lock screen would stay permanently if the user chooses so. *UPDATE* I flashed my LG G2x with Cyanogenmod and LOVE IT. Cyanogenmod actually has an option to put media controls on the lock screen. Now I can start music form the lock screen and after that the Poweramp lock screen soon appears. It would still be nice to have the option to make the Poweramp lock screen permanent.
Personally I think Poweramp is an awesome player, with one huge flaw; the lock screen app is not good. I was considering for a long time to suggest for you to try and achieve the simplicity of Samsung's functional ditto, including a slide-to-unlock feature. However, this week I accidentally stumbled over an old nifty Live Wallpaper that mimic a Walkman cassette player. After a couple of seconds brainstorming I realized that this would be a perfect Lock Screen App! Maybe based on a design like this: http://i.telegraph.c...an_1746181a.jpg With a visible, animated tape inside showing the current song written on it with some hand-written font of course. Roughly something like this: http://i44.tinypic.com/28vwrnk.jpg The best would perhaps to render some transparent plastic above the tape and of course tape wheels rotating the tape. Most phones are usually black around the display today, so a deep black theme for the frame would probably work best to make the lock screen appear like a seamless part of the physical phone. Player controls and unlock slider design could be inspired by buttons like these: http://www.walkmance...oducts/wm-ex618 The actual tape animation could either be done by 3D graphics or simply by looping a short HQ shot of an actual tape playing. A 3D render would give the ability to actually use the tape to show how long the player has gone though the current playlist, by moving the tape from left to right. Please at least consider this idea, as I like the Walkman theme, but think it would be a lot more suitable as a lock screen app instead of those wallpaper or basic apps available today. Remember that Android 4.0 will have better notification bar access at the lock screen, so any other info on the lock screen might just clutter the layout. A small and visible popup on the lock screen showing the number of missed calls and messages would be useful though.
I'd love it if I were able to search for a song from the lock screen that would be so awesome! Please try to make it happen as with my job it would be so much easier than having to unlock it every time I wanted to search for a specific song.
