Amazon MP3 app updated to v2.0.3, brings lock screen controls, bugfixes

Looks as though Amazon decided today was going to be the day to push some updates. Following up on their Amazon Appstore update, they've now updated Amazon MP3 to v2.0.3. Although it's just mostly bug fixes, one thing that will stand out is the addition of lock screen controls to the player. Check out the full list below:

  • Added lock-screen music controls
  • Enabled playback using preset equalizer modes for Gingerbread and Honeycomb (Android OS 2.3+)
  • Enabled the app to remember the last playing song after the app or device goes to sleep
  • Enabled skipping back to the previous song using Bluetooth player controls

Certainly some welcomed changes there -- jump on past the break for the Android Market download or, you can fire up the Amazon Appstore and grab it from there.

  • Nice, finally fixed all those forced closures on my thunderbolt! Thank you amazon.
  • People are having issues with it not playing their music. I can't on my Droid running CM7.
  • It's been updated again and the change log has cm /xoom issues. Its on Version 2.04 now
  • And its pretty cool that Amazon is releasing fixes targeted DIRECTLY at CM7 users exactly one day after the mainstream release. Cooler still if they had tested with CM7, but far better than the 2 to 3 months between bug fix releases in the Apple App store.
  • Please bring this App to the Playbook.
  • Until there is a dedicated app, you can use the Playbook's browser (which supports Flash). Have heard it works flawlessly and that the sound is really good
  • thats great... it still wont play the song unless its 70% or 100% loaded. and even at 100% im lucky if it plays
  • this is going to become my only music player very soon...
  • It already is mine, well, when my zune's not around, that is.
  • I don't see any lock screen controls.
  • go into the app, go to settings, scroll down and see playback settings
  • Ah I see, thanks. This will be handy in the car when I don't want to fool with unlocking the screen.
