Does the Samsung Galaxy S’s music player have a stop button?

I can’t see a stop button – it only seems to pause!

Most mediaplayers these days on phones only have a pause button - it's not just the Galaxy S... crazy times, eh? :p

So I am assuming because it is digital, it doesn't really need a stop button any more?

exactly, and on Android after a few idle minutes the app is pretty much 'closed'...using minimal resources.

If you click on task manager app u can stop the music track, hope this helps.

tap the song that you are playing and slide the position to the end.

Well, when I try to close the music app that came with my Samsung 2, I have to manually exit out and get a Big waring message with an !! saying, "If you force stop an app, it may cause errors." Don't really want to corrupt my music file. The more I use Android the more I wish had iOS!!!

But iOS's music player has no 'stop' button, either. Nor does exiting the app completely close it.
However, both OSs will cut resources to an app once it's been idle for a while.
Not saying it's ideal. I prefer operating systems that let me minimise OR fully close applications. I find myself strangely capable of waiting 2 seconds when I reopen an application. :p
I wouldn't mind because most new Android phones and iPhones can happily perform with quite a few background processes ticking away, but those processes silently suck battery juice.

Oh the irony....

Do you realise just how much more system control you have in Android compared to iOS? Also, unless you're using experimental firmware which has memory leaks, there's no real reason to be manually closing apps on either operating system.

True, matt.
But I guess s/he misses the familiar. The devil you know, and all that....

Get to know a new devil...I did.

I don't believe there is any way it can corrupt the music files either.

Good point, pondlife. Forgot all about that...

It can't, it's simply reading the file, not editing it in any way.

Go to task manager and click on End :)
