3 (Cubed) Music Player
May 17, 2010 12:38 PM –
This is the beta version of the ³ (aka Cubed) music player. Enjoy!
AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
Pros & Cons:
- Awesome spin on music player experience
- Very difficult to find by name in the Market (probably best to scan our QR Codes above or search “Cubed Music Player”)
- If you use wired earbuds with music controls, this app invokes the default music player when you toggle those controls, thus you have two music players going.
³ (aka Cubed) Music Player puts a 3D twist on the music player for Android phones. Play in either portrait or landscape mode (if you have the setting). It supports every feature for listening to music on your phone (standard player, Playlists, Shuffle, etc.) plus a few more like the ability to grab album Cover Art, match concert events of artists in your music library with Concerts³ app extension, plus a few cool ways to display your music and visually theme it.
There are four viewing modes:
- ³ packs the 3D cubed interface in which you can swipe in either direction, swiping horizontally finds artists alphabetically.
- Wall presents albums in a two-columned scrolling wall.
- Boring shows text only albums.
- Morph Flow is somewhat similar to the 3D launcher on Nexus One phones; where it flips the album covers vertically.
Gripe Alert: the app name is cool but the use of the ³ cubed symbol for the name makes it impossible to find in the Android Market. We suggest scanning our QR codes or search “Cubed Music Player” to find it.
Update: To search cubed (³) on the marketplace, hold down “3” on the android keyboard and select the cubed (³) symbol (Thanks @komosis).
Concerts³ is an extension app to be downloaded separately and finds concerts of artists in your music collection that will be performing within a certain range of your location.

³ (aka Cubed) Music Player is both useful as a music player plus gets cool points for its visual style it puts on your music collection. One of those apps to show off to friends.
Ease of Use:
There are a few adjustments to learn while using the app but most features are intuitive of any other music player.
Depends on your music listening frequency; I could see it as a replacement for the default Music app.
The user interface and 3D enhancements is what make this app and its user experience unique.
