Case Study: MDPlayer, Music Player Supporting Android Auto & Android Wear
Meet MDPlayer, the best music player for Android! It was created by MobiDev as a beautiful exercise in design and responsiveness for smartphones and wearables, compatible with Android Auto and Android Wear.
There are plenty of music players on the market, but we wanted to create one that would be the perfect choice for drivers who prefer listening to music in cars. It had to have a special Drive Mode for easy and quick control. It had to work in both portrait and landscape mode. It had to be just as perfect for listening to audiobooks as for music and adjusted for both Latin and Cyrillic scripts. This and much more was achieved with MDPlayer.
MDPlayer went through the stage of business analysis, planned and conducted by our team to identify the needs of end users, gather product requirements in a single solution to those needs, and prepare documentation that would be required for development.
Since this project is our internal endeavor, we decided to use it as an easily understandable showcase of what you get as the result of business analysis for your own software project. That said, we prepared several examples of documentation—you will find them here.
The result of our efforts is an easy-to-use music player for Android devices, featuring an exclusive design and packed with the usual goodies for music lovers, such as custom and auto-generated playlists, shuffle mode, equalizer, and widgets for home screen and notification bar. Special features include Drive Mode with bigger buttons and easier controls—in order to listen to music with comfort while driving—and support for Android Auto and Android Wear.
It surely paid for itself; now we are glad to offer a great product for all music lovers around the world, and we've been continuously updating it ever since. Enjoy your music!
