New Android music player brings Windows Phone 7 UI

fede

It was only a couple of days ago that we saw Infobar, which looked like a more tweakable version of Windows Phone 7. Now the creator of LauncherPro, Federico Carnales, is creating a Windows Phone 7 music player look-a-like called Fede Music.

The look and feel of Windows Phone 7 is quite stunning and we’re glad to see another option like this come to the Android OS. Fede Music is still being developed at the moment, and it’s easy to see that Carnales isn’t attempting to differentiate his music player from Microsoft’s OS. Because of this, the developer may get a cease and desist letter in the near future, but only time will tell.

The clean user interface is simple and to the point – just like Windows Phone 7 itself. Artists, albums, songs, playlists, and genres are displayed neatly on top of the screen and you can either tap on one of these options or swipe to get to the next one. The player is dead simple and everything is displayed right in front of you, so there’s no need to hit the menu button. That said, we can imagine that Carneles may add some extra features into Fede Music that may need to be tucked away.

Android is great for tweaking the look and feel of your phone and one could turn their handset into a Windows Phone without giving up the Android features they love (and keep the app selection). Even if it’s not the real thing this would also help users who are thinking of jumping ship to another OS get a feel for what they would be gaining and losing.

Fede Music looks great and would be a perfect companion to a home replacement like Launcher 7. But if we were to choose between the Windows Phone 7 music player and Android’s updated music player, we’d have to go with the latter.

       From the looks of it, you’re completely right. But I’d never pay money for a music player. This is still very much beta, too.

        Why wouldn’t you pay for a music player? Poweramp was well worth the $5 (Less than a cup of coffee).

      Zplayer lags and does not compare at all to fede music, got both on my Atrix.

    Poweramp is too good, and developer is pretty active too people who did not use it should give it a try. I love its widget!

     One thing I’d add is Fedes Music App plus the Launcher 7 is pretty slick. If the developers teamed up, I’d straight up poop myself.

     Loving it so far, and for an ‘Alpha’ version … well, can’t wait for what’s next.

    Hope you are enjoying the windows phone interface but can’t you get something good on Android out of the box? . I certainly do enjoy my Windows phone interface and fluidity (the original one)
