    from the reviews i read its a better "looking" music player than the stock ones but not a better MUSIC player. :( I need more volume and less aesthetics please.

    Well I don't know what reviews you read, but here's mine: This blows the stock music app out of the water, and it has plenty of volume. I suggest everyone at least try it out, while it's still free.

    No...
    What I am talking about is what is already on the phone. No way of setting a defualt location like sd/music. Like all other media players use. It just pulls all the sound off your phone and puts it in a directory.

    I am using the app right now and it is not doing that. I just searched for some other audio files and couldn't find any of them. It could be because I have my music on an SD card and everything else is on the phone's memory?

    I need help with this (or stock or ANY media player).

    I have a lot of CD's on my card. I don't like every song, so whenever I had mine playing on "shuffle" and don't like a song, I was able to hit a "delete" option on my Storm and it would delete it off of my SD card and move on to the next song.

    I can't find a "delete" option anywhere! Will you young people help out an old woman? ;)

    Mine didn't show up at first either, then I left it open for like 5 minutes and now it is working fine. I'm not sure if this is much better than the standard app, but no complaints so far.

    It's. Goodlooking app but it doesnt read all my music which pisses me off. Why is it not seeing the majority of my music

    EDIT: No Bug.

    I thought it was a bug that caused it to auto mount my SD card, turns out it was just a setting. A setting that overrides your main setting, which I think is confusing. Turned off.

    Good find, njoker. :) I do like the beauty of this app, as well. It is nice to have big forward/back buttons.

    Hmm for some reason I can't get DoubleTwist or the Stock music player to display my album art. I re-imported my music with the DoubleTwist player in Windows 7. Before, when I would just drag and drop my music files, the album art would show up fine. What's the issue here?

    The video player is kinda nice, but Meridian is the way to go for video, because it actually remembers your position when you re-open a video.

    And music-wise, I don't really see a reason for me to use anything other than the default music player. Does DoubleTwist integrate with the lock screen like the default one does?

    1.) doubletwist doesn't see music on the flash memory.

    2.) The HTC player has better playlist management options.

    3.) No widget (currently--they say this is coming)

    4.) I don't use iTunes, and thus don't need the software syncing capabilities. (Well organized file/folder hierarchy for the win!)

    I tried using doubletwist all day today, and the first reply is correct: it looks nice but it isn't ready to be anything more than freeware just yet. I'll definitely keep an eye on it, however. In the meantime, back to the HTC music player.

    2-4 seem reasonable, but 1 isn't correct. I have got this to work with both the internal storage and the microsd card. I did have some issues syncing at first to the microsd and had to delete the sync file on my mac, but since then I have no issues.

    love this app, but i've come across a problem, the doubletwist program for sycing likes to pick out random songs i have and tell me i need to upgrade them to itunes plus before syncing...


    ...when i don't buy music from itunes. just a little annoying.

    download astro file manager from the marketplace. using that app you can select songs to delete. there is no way (that i know of) to delete a song from the music player

    If you find one let me know. I've tried a few and I keep reverting back to HTC's player except that it won't load the damn album art.
