Install CyanogenMod 9’s Apollo Music Player on any Android Device Running Ice Cream Sandwich
CyanogenMod 9 is a AOSP (Android Open Source Project) Ice Cream Sandwich based custom ROM that provides you so many customization options. It has awesome music player app named Apollo, which is now available for many Android devices. The app is well-matched with Android device running latest version of Android “Ice Cream Sandwich”.
No, the Apollo music player doesn’t require a rooted Android device, as the app is available for many device, developers will surely iron out its all bugs and release its next version soon in near future. The app has great features but sadly you can’t access Play Music from using this music player, the reason is that Google has yet to release an API for the app. However the app has every feature that you can expect from it.
The app is still in beta stage and has some bugs but as I said above those developers will iron out all bugs soon. However the app has stunning interface and it support themes. The app provides great experience to you.
The app isn’t available on Google Play Store, only an APK file of music player is available which means you’ll need a file manger app to install the Apollo music player on your Android device. I’ll recommend you ASTRO file manager app that allows you to easily brows and manager your files, you can also share your files with other using ASTRO, you can download the ASTRO file manager app from here.
Once you’ve installed a file manager app, download the CM9 Apollo music player from XDA and transfer it to the SD card of your device. Now first enable Unknown sources from Setting>Security on the device, then open the file manager app, then locate the music player APK and then tap on it, installation will start. That’s it.
