So sorry if this ends up sounding kind of rambling or all over the place, but I have a couple things I want to discuss about music apps on my new razr. I am coming from a Droid X, and I've only had the Razr maybe a week or so. I have an aftermarket bluetooth supporting radio in my car that I have used to play music over bluetooth with using the X and now my Razr. With the X as far as I recall there was 1 music app and it was pretty basic. I would get in the car and once bluetooth connected I would hit play on the stereo and my music would start playing at random. The stereo will then display the name of the song on the screen. I have come to realize that playing music on my Razr is not so simple. Hitting play does not start music or shuffle it. I have to open the music app I want to use and play from there, then I am able to control the tracks using my stereo.
So this leads into my next issue. From what I can see there are 2 music apps on the Razr. One is the Google app now called Play Music. The other is My Music which is Motorola's app, is this correct? I have a car dock that I am using with my Razr that has a music app on the homescreen. I believe this is a link to the Google app, not the Moto one, but I can't be 100% sure- maybe it is a separate app entirely? I feel like there is some confusion on my part because these apps don't actually work together. If I was using one app to play music, I can't then go into the other app and start up where I left off. In fact, I have had trouble selecting songs from one app from a playlist without first hitting play on the app's now playing section, pausing, and then going back to the playlist and selecting the song. I am not sure but I feel like the players in both apps conflict with each other. Is anyone else feeling this frustration or am I alone here?
So besides that, does anyone know if there is a way to edit track names, artist names, etc using the phone, or would I have to load them onto my computer for that. I have been using one of those free song downloaders from the market to download songs and a lot of times the track titles need some editing.
Finally, is anyone actually buying their music from Google now? I either burn Cds from the library or like I said, use a free downloader. I have gotten burned in the past with buying music from Rhapsody and then from iTunes because they used those protected files which made it super difficult to do anything with the music besides load it onto one of THEIR specific music players. Is this the case with Google as well?
Anyways, thanks for listening to me ramble and foor any advice you can give!
