Request: lock screen MMA [#13715]

Post by MonkeyStrut » Thu May 12, 2016 8:07 am

It would be so great to have a specific MMA lock screen that runs over the Android lockscreen, and that can be enabled or not (just as PlayerPro or PowerAmp have) . Yes, it adds one step to unlock the phone but it gives access to all MMA features (especially ratings) without unlocking the phone.

I'm not talking about a widget on the lock screen, but a specific MMA lock screen. When I try to change the rating of a song from the lock screen widget, it always thinks I want to open the app, and send me to my unlocking screen, and I never know if my change of rating has been taken into account or not.

Definitely adding my vote to this.

I use my Galaxy Tab S2 8" in my new car as a replacement for the DVD player from my previous car radio.

The more I can do on the lock screen wo/futz'n-round, the better!

Hi,
I tested today and if you allow Lock screen Show Permissions to MMA then set Notification shown always them you will see MMA player on lock screen.

Tested on Android 5.1.1 and 6.0.1

Yes, but it's just this small "widget" or am I missing something?!

MMA can replace the lock screen (ie. it is full screen) if you enable it do so.

We would like to see a larger MMA lockscreen, with more controls (rating), like the one of Player Pro, for example.

I never got a fullscreen, then maybe there is something wrong with my settings. I didn't find this "Lock screen Show Permissions" option.

Anyway, what I really wanted is to rate songs without have to put my PIn and unlock the phone/tablet.

Can anyone help me?

This is what my lockscreen looks like now currently:

Image

(I don't know how I got it to look that way or if it's some default setting)

I don't have much xp with smartphones yet and i don't really understand the stuff i've read about (MMA) lockscreen widgets so far or how to change them but what I want is 1) bigger control buttons, at least the play/pause button. It's a bit small for use while running when it's on my arm. 2) the background is currently a small part of the artwork enlarged and I would like it to be the full artwork.

Basically i would like the lockscreen to look similar to the big now playing screen in the app itself.

Is this at all possible? And if so; how do I do this?

Hi,
Fullscreen background cropped image is due Android feature I see it in other apps also and it is most likely due the resizing and form factor.
