MP3tunes Android Player: New And Improved!

We have been hard at work to improve the MP3tunes Android music player. The new Google Nexus One phone offers a lot of exciting new features with a big increase in speed. The increased memory and the 1 Ghz processor make quite a difference when listening to or streaming your Locker. If you have the older version of the Android Player we recommend upgrading to the latest version. The first time that you upgrade you will have to uninstall the existing software manually. To do this just go to the Home screen, then select Settings then Applications. Choose "Manage applications" and scroll down and find the MP3tunes Mobile Locker and click on it. Here you should see an "Uninstall" button. You can install the latest stable version by going to the Android Market. Just search for "mp3tunes". After you install the latest version, all future versions will offer you updates and upgrade automatically. (You won't have to uninstall the previous version each time). You can submit feature requests and bug reports here.

If you like beta testing software and want to see the latest cutting-edge version of the Android MP3tunes Player you can manually install it. To do this you have to enable the manual installation of software on Android. To do this, go to the Home screen and select Settings. Then go to Applications and check the box that says: "Unknown sources: Allow install of non-Market applications". Then, grab the latest version from

If you manually install the beta version you will NOT get updates automatically. Each time you install the .apk file you will have to manually uninstall the previous version. The beta testing version may offer different features that aren't available in the stable version. But, it may also contain bugs. So, if you install the beta testing version we ask you to please report any bugs that you find to If you're a developer you can download the latest version of the source code from the Google Code site. We are always looking for Android developers who want to contribute to the project.
