    Default Lock screen music player widget

    Hey all-

    Crazy question, but does Android have an available lock-screen music widget? (like you get with the iPhone) That was my biggest complaint about Android, because I use it A LOT on my iPhone.

    if you can root your phone and get senseui (that's if you don't already have a phone with sense) than you can get it. the sense lock screen has the music information plus play, pause, back, and next all on the lock screen.

    Wow, really? I actually didn't know that Sense had that. That makes me want to wait for the Incredible. I listen to music A LOT, so the lock-screen controls are a must-have.

    bTunes has what you're looking for. You can also set the camera button to do play/pause.

    How would I go about doing that? Is there a standalone version of sense, or would I have to flash it?

    You would have to root it and find a mod, This depends on your current phone. try going to the xdaforums and look in the section on your phone and rooting/hacking
