    Unhappy Things I miss in new Media Player and prefer old Music Player instead.

    Device info: (I am Using Nokia N8 Symbian Anna)

    There was a time that I was telling friends that now cell phones are equipped with all the best features when it comes to music also. But that was thing of the past.
    1. Artist & Albums Menu. No Separate selection for each available.
    a. Artist:
    How it is: Artist names are shown with album names.
    Problem: If one had to play all songs of desired artist, he can’t as he doesn’t get “PLAY ALL SONGS” option in that.
    How it should be: Type or scroll to the desired artist name, tab (open) it then you will find out options as “Play all songs” or “Play Album (named separately as XXX, XYZ)”. Previous Media Players had that option.
    b. Albums:
    How it is: As explained in Artist menu.
    Problem: I have albums which are multi artists (especially Indian movie songs which are mostly various artists) so if one had to listen to that complete album, he simply can’t.
    How it should be: As explained above for artists. Previous Media Players had that option.
    2. No type tool available to search in desired fields.
    How it is: The most important thing, the typing tool is unavailable,
    Problem: If one have huge music collection and have to search for song either by artist, album, genre, or by all songs option, he can only scroll, while scrolling he is guided by alphabets but still it not powerful tool.
    How it should be: It’s easy to find if one just type the first few alphabets of first (or any word in the field). Previous Media Players had these options.
    3. Missing Music Composer Menu.
    As these options were available in older phone’s media players like Nokia N95, N73 etc but in new once they are missing, Changing in manifestation is good, adding new and attractive features is great, improvement in ease of use is best but eliminating power features is doing something which is equal to downgrade to Stone Age............ I don't think so people will appreciate.
    4. Custom Equalizer Settings.
    How it is: There few selective factory presets for the equalizer.
    Problem: There are millions of Genres Worldwide and not every part of the world matches the music presets they stored in device and most of time people match the sound on their Audio devices (Car Stereo, Home and other) so they need to edit the equalizer for the best optimum sound quality.
    How it should be: As in older devices had and one can change and save his own setting.
    5. Expecting to add more menus: Suggestions for more menus (like year, mood etc) will be greatest things you will do.
    Who will go and buy a separate device just for music if he has all these features supported by his cell phone specially when the manufacturer claims that it have music player inside.
    People don’t have to stop on highways or stop skating for a while just to select the next song, allow people to go by several options.

    (Please note that if somewhere i sound mean or hash, that means i am Nokia Fan and disappointed and wanted to bring it in developers notice.)

    Hello haroonbarech,

    and welcome to Nokia Developer Discussion Boards!

    Thank you for your candid feedback, that is very much appreciated.

    As the discussion board area here is related to Java ME based application development, could you possibly define the Java APIs which would need to be adjusted accordingly your requirement?

    Hello haroonbarech,

    thank you for the information.

    About the question which I asked on post #2, could you specify which Java API parts would need to be fixed for the issues?

    On the other hand, if the issue is not about application development but instead regarding product specific issue then it is advised to post this question on Nokia Discussion Boards here: http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/...rt_Discussions
