Droid X as a media player
Well, after a few months since switching out my iPhone 3GS for a Droid X, I've decided to go back to Apple iOS devices for my media playing. It's not that the Droid X isn't a capable media player, but it has so many little irritations that I'm just fed up with it. I'm selling my 3GS on Gazelle and picking up an iPod touch.
Has anyone else used the Droid X as a music player and found themselves happy with it?
My main beef comes from the phone's inability to let me configure how the applications respond to headset buttons. I use DoggCatcher for Podcasts (and will continue to do so) but when I hit the headset button, it would start playing music out of the music app instead of stopping the podcast. The Music App won't give up control of the headset buttons, and I'm sick of it. On top of that, in order to keep my albums playing in album order, I have to maintain a second library which stores my music in mp3 rather than AAC, and so I'm always forgetting which library I most recently added songs to... it's just a hassle.
And carrying 2 devices will be as well, but the new iPod touch will be very thin so I think I'll manage.
