Default music app issue

Hi there. I have a small issue with my HTC one. When im in the music app and select an artist, starting with 'p' say, and I press the back button or the button in the top left of the screen it immediately goes back to the top of my artist list. Very annoying!

Hi, I don't understand what you expect it to do. Have you selected/played a track of your artist 'p' ? If you have and then tap 'back', it should return to artist 'p' to select another track. Tap 'back' a second time it will go to the top of your artist list, which is what I would expect it to do.

If you haven't selected/played a track by artist 'p' tapping 'back' will return you to the top of the artist list, again, as I would expect it to do.

I think what he is saying is that if you select a 'P' artist check out what albums are available then when you press back to go back to the list you are not in the 'P' position in the list but back at 'A' which I agree is very annoying

If that is the way the app is setup, why not try a different music app?

That's exactly what happens. Maybe I will try a new music app. Seems ridiculous that the stock app was set up this way.

Forgive me for asking, but exactly why do you both find it so annoying?

(Hopefully this tactic is still featured in Sense 5)
When browsing a long list of Artists in Music or Contacts in People, you can try scrolling with 2 fingertips touching the screen and you may find that it will scroll quicker by first letter. You can jump down to 'P' in a simpler manner
There is also probably a small scoll bar on the right edge of the screen, if you are quick and accurate you may be able to grab that bar with a fingertip. For example in Messages, when you can grab the scroll bar, it will let you scroll a really long conversation thread by date.

well i usually just random play songs but just now i went into the stock app.
i browsed by song. went to the "p" section, tapped the song it then went to that song and played it. i then tapped the back arrow and i was right there at the song i started with. did not reset to the top.

i then went to browse by albums. sorted by album name. went to the "p" section, randomly picked an album in the "p" section. browsed it, backed out, and was still at the album. it did not reset to the top.

even pressing the top arrow does the same thing. it goes back to the album list and right at the exact spot i was at. :confused

what carrier are you guys on that has this issue and are you rooted by chance?
