    I just upgraded the Android system on my Xperia phone, and noticed it has a new default music player. Having a player widget right on the screen is nice, but I can't help but notice that this new player seems to have a lot more skips and hiccups than the old one, even though I'm playing the exact same tracks. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Thanks,

    I don't know about skips, but the new music player I ended up with apparently has the ability to sync music collections to/from the cloud, which also means that a music download manager runs everytime I start the app and stays running after. I've determined that this was causing an egregious slowing of my Droid 1, so I went back to the old version. I'd seen references to this before I upgraded, so it wasn't just me.

    I had been using Mediascape, which was one of the default programs, but that doesn't seem to be available anymore. So, going back to the default doesn't seem to be an option. :/
