For a while it’s been known that the new CynanogenMod 9 ROM is to come with a new version of the default Android music player. The wait is finally over.
You can now download the .apk file of Apollo, the name of the CM9 player. It’s in alpha though, so expect some bugs and issues.
You don’t have to be running an early version of CM9 to run the new media player, but you do need to have a phone with Ice Cream Sandwich for it to work.
