Google Music & GmusicFS

The latest update to Google Play Music has really annoyed me. Nothing due to the interface (I’m fine with that), but it Force Closes every few minutes, and I keep getting the message ever y 5-10 minutes as it tries to sync so I’ve uninstalled it. But obviously this means I no longer have access to my Google Music library.

Not exactly true.

Using a tool released on XDA Developers, called GMusicFS (Google Music Filesystem), you can actually use any other player (WinAMP, PowerAMP, Rocket Player) to play your Google Music, because GMusicFS turns a directory on your SD Card into a pseudo-library, which is actually the Google Music library.

It seems to work, but does require a rooted device.

Here’s the link if you want to try it out yourself:
