antcodd Posted October 4, 2011 Share Posted October 4, 2011 Ww were promised search function will be improved in version 2, but in my opinion, this is not the case. First, there should be a dedicated button (not combination of button tappings) for that on the main screen and this should allow me to directly browse by artist, genre, title, year... Instead, there are several buttons, which are not that often used.Is the dedicated search key most android phones have not dedicated enough (or usually hold menu button on others)? I do notice it seems to be a bit buggy though - the button doesn't always work for me. I do wonder if the equalizer and tone controls are needed at the top though (and could be replaced by a search button I guess - though it is already accessible from the menu as well). You can also get to the library to browse by tapping the current playing song (and search also returns albums/artists/composers etc.). I also wonder if filter and search should be better integrated.I do agree with your idea that it would be nice to show genre etc. particularly instead of sample rate (and current playlist - can be hard to know what next list button will do). Bit rate can be occasionally useful (but not really necessary) but I can't think of a time I have ever needed the sample rate.There is a huge list of features that have been implemented for version 2 and we can't have everything at once. There are some things I would rather weren't pushed back to 2.x (like rating tags) over ones that have been implemented that I don't need (like lyric download) but a lot of different people use the app for different things.
