What do you think about the stock music application?

  1. I have to use another application for music.

    So am I one of the only people who doesn't mind the stock music player? I feel like I'm in the same boat as when it comes to Swype, I just don't see what the big deal is.

    It has a good interface, but when populating artists/albums, it's just slow. I use another program (doubletwist or 3 or Meridian) for my music playback.

    I don't mind the stock music player but I do prefer 3. But thats mostly because I think it looks better :D

    I'm not really on board with Swype yet. It's neat but I type just fine with the regular old keyboard and I am not in the mood to try something else.

    One thing that I usually feel alone in is my feelings on the Sense Widgets. Most people seem to love them and won't try other home replacement apps because they will loose them. Personally... I hate them. I think they are huge, clunky and just ugly. I even paid for the Launcher Pro Plus which now has some similar widgets and I still don't use them. But I'm more than happy to support the dev of my favorite app :)

    I'm trying to get into Swype. Unfortunately the only real time I've spent texting on my phone is while at work, when I don't really have time to learn something new. It's been a little frustrating sending messed up messages and having a hard time typing up messages. I like the idea a lot so I'm trying to get into it more.

    Anyone know when a fully supported version of Swype will be out? I have the skinned one from XDA but I feel like it's not as "pretty" as the official. Almost looks a little outdated, anyone else agree?

    I like the stock music player also. I just wish there was a way to change tracks by long pressing on the volume rocker like my old bb.

    I like and use Meridian also. But Hey! That's the nice thing about a customizable device with many choices to choose from! If you don't like what you currently use, try something else!

    I've pretty much used every media player and always go back to stock, I love the lock screen controls , the widget is decent . My only beef with the stock player is it's slow but it's the most reliable imo

    I think the default music player is terrible... no features to speak of and not intuitive.

    Would it work out if i were on a deserted island with charging but no broadband? Sure it would but don't think about that senario too much, you may get sick.

    Now OTOH, deserted island WITH HS Broadband????

    :D

    That is exactly how I feel, I wish it could keep the album art and music widget synced when the phone is rebooted but past that she is amazing like the rest of the phone...

    I would be all over "3" if it could incorperate the music player's lock screen but until then rocking stock :)

    I kind of HAVE to use the stock music player, since all my music is loaded on the emmc internal memory. Since you can't put apps there, the only use I could come up for all that memory is music and pictures. Most apps only look on the sdcard for media.
