You know, guys, we have become a bit obsessed with music recently. Since we wanted to create a companion to our equalizer and add to the collection of Android widgets, the idea to develop a nice and convenient audio widget was born almost immediately.

So if you have already developed a music player and you feel that you want to make it even better, then you’re welcome to use this library and enjoy the results.

Let firstly show you the demo :

Gradle file

To start, you need to add the following dependency to your project in the build.gradle file:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.cleveroad:audiowidget:0.9.0'

Manifest file

As always, to make sure that no user’s data or any other application on a device would be impacted, we need to add two permissions to the app manifest:
<!-- used for drawing widget. This permission must be granted before calling -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW"/>

<!-- used for notifing user that he is about to remove widget when he drags it on remove widget icon. -->
<!-- This permission granted by default on Android 6.0+ devices. -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>

As you can see, the first one will help you draw a widget over other applications. The second one is needed to inform a user that he is about to make a widget disappear when dragging it to the remove icon at the bottom of the screen. Although, the latter is optional.
