Media Player widget on N8

Media Player widget on N8

[ Edited ]

I've got the media player widget on one of my home screens. This works fine until I listen to the radio. Cleverly the widget becomes a radio controller, but I've found no way to get it back to controlling my media library once I've finished using the radio.

 

I need to go back into the menu and start the media player from there to reset the widget.

 

Can anyone help me with this? Thanks,

To be honest that seems to be the best work around, the widget can't be changed by itself unfortunately from what I can tell, as you stated becomes the media/radio player automatically.

yep, I've noticed this too. weird. as much as I really do like this phone, it's stupid stuff like this that really irritates me. feels like sloppy, or at least incomplete, testing on Nokia's part.

Feature request lol

 

Simply the widget should have a radio and media player button on it.

 

If i was to design the widget with media in mind i'd have have better icons, ditch the pink? (**bleep** where they on) colour for the icon, display song name and next song, scroll it to fit and have an app/ widget mode button for when you want more control.
