Using my S2 as an iPod replacement...
Recently, my in-car 2005 iPod died horribly - and, I thought, why not use my Galaxy S2 instead? I connected it to my car stereo and used the "Music" application to play the two 'standard' tracks that came with it. Success.
Next, I tried to copy an album's worth of MP3s onto my phone using Kies Air. First off, I used Kies Air to delete the 'default' tracks. Next I tried to upload to Music... but, while the uploads claimed to succeed, I got no new music in my Music application... and the tracks didn't appear in Kies Air in my web browser. I gave up... came back a week later - and the tracks I'd previously uploaded were present in both the browser interface and for the music application. I tried uploading a second album of mp3s - but had the same problem as before... the upload claimed to succeed - but the tracks did not appear on the device in the Music application - or in the web browser interface. Is Kies Air really the best way to put my music collection onto my S2?
With the music application itself, the most frustrating thing is that I can't work out how to quit it... the best I can manage is to pause.
So, basically, I'd like to know if all Android users have these problems, or am I doing something silly? Is Kies air my best bet to put albums of MP3s onto my device? Is the Music program (installed by default) the best one to use to use my S2 as an iPod replacement? Is Kies Air the best way to upload/manage MP3s on my S2?
