Before you Install…[ac-toggle title=”Is Cloudskipper free? Really?”]
Yes, it’s free and will never have ads.
With v2.0 we’ll do a free w/ paid upgrade.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”Why do you need so many permissions?”]
Most of the features we have planned for this year require permissions (auto-sync, streaming).
We don’t use your social media data for anything.

Music Library[ac-toggle title=”How can I edit playlists and songs?”]
Tap and hold on any song, artist, or title listed in the library for editing options.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”How do I make a new playlist?”]
Tap and hold on any song, artist, or title in the list. Select “Add…” to add to playlist, then select “New…” to create a new playlist.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”How can I use music via folders?”]
That’s part of the 2.0 release…[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”Will you add an album artwork finder? Last.fm Scrobbling?”]
While these feature are important, there are already free Android apps that can do this.
We won’t be adding this.
We did something similar with our previous project, Mixwit. That feature almost got us into trouble and we had to shut down. We don’t want to go through that experience again.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”Why does the lock screen take a long time to show up?”]
Google does not provide an official API for us to replace the lock screen.
We’re doing our best to hack around it by doing some clever things, but unfortunately it will always be a little slow until Google provides developers with the tools to do this the right way.[/ac-toggle]
Playing Music[ac-toggle title=”What about an EQ?”]
Cloudskipper has EQ functionality for Android 2.3+ devices
. Android 2.2 and earlier didn’t include the AudioFX library, so a separate DSP library (such as FFmpeg) would have to be used and will take a while to implement.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”What about sync and streaming? Or a desktop player?”]
That’s actually what we started on from the beginning.
Most of that works but it’s not finished. After launching Cloudskipper on Android we discovered we need to cover essential mobile features first.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”We need more, better widgets!”]
Once we get HD Widgets out the door, we’ll add more Cloudskipper widgets.[/ac-toggle]

We started Cloudskipper a few years ago. Originally, it was supposed to be like Boxee and make it easy to access and play all of your cloud media services in one place.
Now we’re looking at it as a way to fly among your cloud media services and/or skip them and host your own.[/ac-toggle][ac-toggle title=”What’s with the airplane logo?”]
