Boy do people like to bitch, hopefully developers have thicker
skin than I...
To your points,
1. Yes -- its changed, my bad. Should have looked before I posted.
2. There's a lot of options available (I for one really apprecaite
them all). How they are presented is likely a matter of themes. Given
that this is a beta release -- new themes that are more to your liking
aren't there yet.
3. I didn't care for and thus didn't use the 'search for music page'.
4. Finding the options to build a new playlist, took some playing around. I
found it under settings->media settings->music tools, then I selected a smart
playlist and hit menu. An option for creating a playlist showed up there.
I have said before that having a music screen and a music *tools* screen (which
now both play music) maybe a bit confusing. I suspect a nice theme would/could
If you get over your perceived problems with the interface, you'll note that the
developers have been REALLY hard at work. There are a lot of new capabilities, when
presented well -- will be greatly appreciated. Try playing around with it and see
what things are available.
