    But it still shows the selected song playing. I have been hitting pause. Also power cycling the phone will quit the player.

    So I guess I need to make a feature request.

    No. There is no missing feature here.

    I am not understanding what you are saying. If you hit Pause or pull your headphones out the song doesn't pause and you continue to HEAR music playing?

    If you want to close the app. Hit the Home button.

    Pause the song, then press the home button to return back to the home screen. You don't need to stop or turn off anything.

    Well "PAUSE" is not quit or stop or exit! And pulling out the headphones does not stop anything. When you pull out the head phones the music comes from the phones speaker.

    There should be a quit without having to get another app just to kill the task.

    My music player starts to play any random song as soon as it connects to the

    sync system in my car. This is driving me nuts. It issues a notification and I have to remove the phone from my holster and press and hold the top of the screen and drag down the notification. Hit the music player message, pause the song, return to the home screen, turn off the screen and put the phone back in the holster. BS

    This is easy enough to do but I wish there was a timer for the songs, where I could set it for maybe an hour and then they would power off ... is that too much to hope for?

    I also fail to see the problem here, but then, I've had the distinct... privilege? Of coming from the iPhone to the DROID, so I already know about this queer li'l pause/stop deal.

    To quote just aboot any developer out there, it's working as intended.

    Sure, hitting pause stop the music. But the app is still running in the background. I have to force end the process for the app to quit and give up the 5-6 mb of memory it is using. I don't like that at all, and it may have "undisirable consequences"

    When the song is playing press the icon on the left next to the shuffle icon then hit menu on the bottom of the phone and hit clear playlist and it should stop.

    I agree their needs to be a easier way to stop it from playing

    on mine to stop it if it has timed out (which it dose sometimes) or if I had had another app open while it's playing, i have to

    hit the power button on the top
    slide the unlock
    slide up the widget screen to display all the widgets
    scroll down to the music player widget
    hit the music player widget
    hit the song that's playing to bring up music player
    hit the pause button.

    that's a lot of steps just to stop it from playing a song.

    You could just slide up your Apps screen and tap Music.

    Or slide down the notification bar, hit the song, and then pause.

    There needs to be a stop button. I don't want to pause it, I want it to stop and close, not run in the background, and use my memory and battery. I shouldn't have to kill the app to turn it off completely.

    If this is what is still happening when I pause it, I agree.

    this isnt a blackberry you dont need to worry about apps running in the background.


    when the song is paused its the same as if you had a stop button.

    same as an IPOD there is no stop button all you have is play/pause then forward and rewind.
