Lyrics Grabber is a free add-on for Android music players. You continue using your favourite music player as before but Lyrics Grabber adds functionality to view lyrics of any song you are listening to. When you start a song Lyrics Grabber gets its title and artist information from your music player and finds the lyrics for you. Small icon appears automatically on notification bar giving easy access to lyrics and disappears once the song has finished. Simple as that. Give it a try.
- several popular music players are supported with more being added soon;
- if your player isn't supported by default, but has setting/option to scrobble via Simple Last.fm or Scrobble Droid, turn that setting on; that way you can still enjoy Lyrics Grabber;
- if automatic lyrics icon seems too intrusive, you can disable/enable it in the Lyrics Grabber menu
- internet connection is required, but once lyrics is viewed at least once, it will be cached for offline use
- option to edit lyrics (all changes are stored locally in your phone)
Tips for specific audio players:
* RocketPlayer - go to "Settings"->"Audio Settings"->"Installed Scrobbler" and set it to "Official Last.fm"
* Cubed - go to "Preferences"->"Last.fm Scrobbling" is set to either "Simple Last.fm Scrobbler" or "Scrobble Droid".
* MixZing - go to "Settings"->"General" and turn "Scrobble to last.fm" on; MixZing support works with little delay (~5 seconds), but is fully functional.
* Winamp - make sure you have Last.fm app installed (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fm.last.android , you don't need to be Last.fm user); Winamp only sends song info when it can detect Last.fm app in the device.
