    I'm trying to get me dad using this on his S3, and i have same on my M8, I find it VERY un-intuitive, not like Google, and so hard to use and understand, The GUI is all graphics and pictures and really doesn't help...should be cleaner and easy to follow.
    Our problems are:
    1. We see other albums present that are on PC but not on the phone, very simple we don't want to see them (they are only seriously confusing my dad), can these be turned off?
    2. We want to play all songs in an album, this app doesn't seem to have this very obvious wanted function...it was on ipods and came from the old days of playing CDs and tapes,and people would still want it (maybe I just can't see it), BUT it SHOULD be obvious!

    Any suggestions for other music player apps, that are simple to work?
     



    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Open the app's menu (top-left) and enable "downloaded only".

    Select an album, click the orange "play" button, and playback should start sequentially from Track 1. That's what works for me; if it doesn't for you check that "shuffle" isn't enabled.

    Thanks for repelies, but.....
    I don't have a menu top left?!!

    Will try this, but I find it very difficult to see what option is presently occurring hence my difficulty!


    Additional point...what makes this so messy, is that there are also many single songs, which get shown with album art, and makes them highly confusing to differentiate between a song or album, this why I find the presentation so horrible...any ideas to make better?

    It's accessed via the "hamburger" button (three stacked horizontal lines) in the title bar next to "Listen Now".

    Thanks again Slug.

    In MY HTC M8 (don't have my dads phone handy), I don't have that button, I have 3 vertical dots top right for settings (when all music is visible), and no sign of option for "downloaded only".:thinking:
