    Is it really supposed to be this ugly? This looks absolutely TERRIBLE to me, and it seems as if there is no way to change it. I usually use PowerAmp, but I streamed a few songs and I was greeted by this lovely half-screen nonsense. Am I alone in thinking this? Am I missing something? PowerAmp just updated their app to include this lockscreen as an option.. wtf?

    Yes that's how it's supposed to be. It's quite an upgrade over GB and older versions of Google music, imo.

    Yes, it's an upgrade, most certainly.. But it just seems off to me. The album art is a bit too dark, and the transition between the top half and bottom.. just looks odd. I dunno, I guess I am just picky. I was just curious why they added this to PowerAmp, because from my experience, their built in one is better

    Wow that's PowerAmp? That does look good, nice and clean. If that's PowerAmp I may consider switching just for that. :hail:

    Probably the #1 app I recommend to fellow android users. The equalizer alone is worth it, I have never had a player (or device) sound as good as PowerAmp makes it sound. Give the trial a shot, I'm pretty sure you get all the features, but you are limited to 14 days or something like that. My ONLY complaint is that I wish they would open their API so developers could theme it a little better. I would really love an all black player with white text, as I am running Black Exodus. The dark skin that comes with it is a little hard to read, and the brighter ones are a bit plain.

    Give it a shot, I love it

    Hmmm I'll definitely give it a shot. I don't really use my phone as a mp3 player unless I forget mine. The EQ on Google Music is pretty good.

    Ah see, my Nexus has become my MP3 player, nice having to not worry about multiple electronics anymore! Let me know if you have any questions with PowerAmp!

    I love PowerAMP, but the idea of Google Music giving me access to my library of 17,000+ songs anywhere I go is just too amazing. I can deal with the ugly lockscreen widget. Though, I don't really use my Nexus for playing music often, as I have an iPod touch for my music needs. I find the sound quality superior from the iPod for some reason.

    Poweramp can't access google music accounts can it? I don't store music on the device, which is why it's my backup

    Unfortunately, no, since Google has not opened the API for Google Music. There are ways around it, but not worth it if you don't use your phone as your primary mp3 player :D ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.t3hh4xx0r.cloudsniper )
