I keep reading that there is a new lockscreen with the Gingerbread upate with a music widget on it. I updated mine and still have the old Froyo style. Was wondering if anyone else had the same issue and if there was a way to correct. Thanks.
The lock screen seems to be the same and there is a music control but it only shows up when you are playing music at the time.
The music player control on the lock screen is one of the features of the PowerAMP music player. Prolly Moto copied it from them. It's very convenient having it there. BTW, PowerAMP is vastly superior to the stock music player.
And, yeah, it only appears while the player is running.
