Beat Music Player 1.1.0

A straightforward and lightweight sidebar gadget which enables you to easily and quickly listen to music from your computer’s HDD
Beat Music Player is an unobtrusive widget which acts like a media player, helping individuals listen to all their favorite songs.

The interface has a modern and simple design, letting you view the cover art of the currently playing song, along with playback controls such as play, pause, stop, backwards and fast forward buttons, as well as a volume bar and a playlist. There are also some buttons in the main window which enable you to jump to a particular album, by double-clicking it. Furthermore, the UI is very easy to use, for both novice and advanced users.

It is important to know that this software application only allows you to play MP3 files, which can be found in the Windows Media Player library. However, this also means the gadget’s playlist is going to show you the uploaded songs, along with the albums and artists.

By right clicking on the widget’s frame, you bring up a context menu, which closely resembles most Windows Gadgets. To be more exact, from here you can add other gadgets to the desktop, as well as move or close Beat Music Player. Aside from that, you can force this software utility to always stay on top of other apps, control the opacity levels (from 20% to 100%) and open the settings panel. The latter enables you to shuffle or repeat all the MP3s, as well as look for updates.

To sum up, Beat Music Player is a useful gadget which enables you to listen to music from the Windows Media Player library, without the app in question. CPU and memory usage is minimal and response time is good.
