The music player. I hate it. I really do. I hate dragging my songs over onto my sd card, and I hate that I don't have a real podcast player (currently I drag my podcast songs from iTunes to my sd card). I know there are other 3rd party music players available in the Market, but they all suck (doubleTwist crashed every time I tried it, and I had to reformat/wipe my sd card after trying it).
I read on some thread here someone is avoiding the iPhone because he/she "hates being a slave to iTunes." I couldn't disagree more. One of the big things the iPhone has over Android phones is iTunes integration. Apple has this right. I just want to plug in my Droid and sync it up with a neatly organized library online. I heard months back about Google releasing a cloud-based music player ("Google Music"). Well, what happened?! I heard it was being held up by litigation from record companies, but could we at least get something similar to iTunes where we keep/organize our music on a home computer and sync at home?
Another thing I hate: the fact that I have to choose an album when I click on an artists name. Albums... what a primitive concept! If you're like me, for certain artists/bands you put only a handful of songs in your library, and these songs are probably from a bunch of different albums. Besides that, I honestly don't think I can listen to a whole album anymore, at least not one that's not from the Beatles. This was one of the reasons I was an early adopter of the iPod- I didn't want to listen to albums. So on my Droid, when I want to listen to a band, I have to choose the album I want to listen to- well each album might only have 1-3 songs, then after its done I have to navigate to the next album. What, do I have to make a playlist for every artist/band? I shouldn't have to!
Another thing: My car's USB player can't read my Droid right. I don't think theres an app that I can dl to make it read my Droid better (is there?), I tried everything but it seems like it just doesn't want to read it. Maybe I'm being picky, but if I plug in my trusty iPod it does just fine in reading it.
I think this all comes down to Android not having a centralized music player. Google just hasn't really invested in it's music player for it's phones. I look at the Thunderbolt, and I really like it and really want to go out and get it (and I most likely will) but the crappiness of the Android music player system is something that makes me think twice about getting an iPhone and living with Apple's strict parameters and that tiny, minuscule screen. I really like Android too, and love my Droid. Anyone else feel this way?
