A certain smartwatch user aimed to create a “lightweight” music control app for his Sony Smartwatch 2. What started as a personal project, has evolved into an app that’s worth sharing to the smartwatch community.
The project is ongoing. The creator posts updates from time to time. The app has the following basic functions:
- Display of artist, title and the album art
- Swipe for next/previous song
- Tap for play/pause
- Should work with all music players which are controllable via the homescreen
- Font color and size customizable
Android 4.4 Kitkat is required to run the app.
Currently, it is running on version 1.1.6. The latest update allows users to adjust brightness in order to make the font more readable. Volume can also be toggled by swiping.
