I am using the stock player to play mp3's...are there any better ones??
I know people always complain about the stock one, but I personally feel it is the best one, and has the least bugs.
Some of the others have upsides, but also have lots of downsides. I really dont think any developers have really though hard about making a better one
Yes Sir! Maybe try 3 music player (Type Rock On in marketplace and select 3).
Its still pretty beta-ish but it might be something like you are looking for
Meh, its pretty but not really functional. Especially hard to navigate while driving.
Touch Music is good while driving and easy to use...you just can't select playlists...it plays all your music in shuffle...pretty basic but it has its moments
i was using "3" for a while but i was messing around with the stock player today and i discovered something.
no need to bypass the lock screen to get to the music player!
when you press the power button to turn the phone on, the music player is right there. no lock screen. although, its actually the stock player for milestone with the cover flow after a root, but still. this is awesome.
i'm fine with the stock 2.1 music player.
Which ROM are you running in order to get this?
I'm on BB 1.0 (2.0.1) and I thought it had the Milestone player, but maybe not?
Please explain more.
This is a bug/ "feature" of the coverflow 2.0.1 music player ported from the Milestone.
It's an option in the Droidmod ROM, I think, but it first came from Pete's BB ROMs (though it's no longer an option, I believe).
Anyways, this is only for the Milestone player, and it only works if your screen locks while the player is up in the now playing screen.
As for the best music player IMO, it is "3"
well if this really is a bug then it must be the best bug ever because it is so useful. hate having to unlock the screen every time just to skip a track.
but anyway, I'm usiing sholes 2.0.6.
I have just developed an app called bTunes Music Player. It's in the market. Try it out and let me know what you think. Suggestions welcome. Thanks.
i downloaded i Music from the market last night...think its pretty cool how I can search for a song much like iTunes and it will give you the option to hear it online or you can download it to your phone.
yeah i was finally gonna settle with this app
cuz it's so similiar to the itouch/iphone music (which everyone is very used to)
but it lists the songs in alphabetical order under albums
i can't stand that for some reason lol
i think tha'ts the only downside of it
Thanks for trying it out, I have fixed the album sorting and in the next update you will have the option of sorting them by track number or alphabetically.
I have been using Mort Player. It allows you to use folders of music rather than having to set up playlists. It also supports bluetooth controls. Doesn't do a good job on album art, but I usually turn off the screen anyway.
A few suggestions:
1. when the headphones are removed the song should pause like the stock player
2. when paused you should still be able to change the media volume
3.the open on menu option doesnt work for me
4. maybe have color options to make it fit in with the phone a little more. i like the interface, but would like more android style
5. need a widget bad. I absolutely need a widget to use while driving
kinda old thread but heres another suggestion
i did the update and the songs are in the album order instead of the alphabetical order which made it soooo much better
but one thing that bugs me
whenever im browsing through artists and everytime you press the back button, it takes you back all the way to the top of the artist list, rather than taking you back to where you were
could you update that??
3 mixed with mylockandroid is great. you can have your droid locked and still use the music app!
the best one I found so far is Mixzing. By far the best. And I've tried pretty much all of them.
I use bTunes. I like it alot. My feedback:
1. make it so it doesnt have to find the songs EVERY time you start it.
2. Re-design the lock screen music widget thing. I hate it currently. See if you can put it on the main lockscreen, not a forwarded one that takes 2x as long to open.
I'll download this shortly but one of my gripes with the stock player is that it will pull all MP3 files (ie Podcasts) and I was wondering if yours allows it to only pull music files from one directory?
I will give another vote on btunes. I have been using it and it works well and the developer has been working on it a lot.
Got the app and instantly in love since you can lock it to one directory. Great job!
Same here. After trying quite a few music players, I have found Mixzing to be the best for my needs. The album art is nice, but the band information that it downloads is pretty cool. Not sure if any other player does this or not.
3D CUBE is the best - FAST and I really like the UI - its different...!
