Advanced search options in Music Player 5

by Adam Marks Sat, 05 Mar 2011 4:27 pm EST

While advanced third-party music players have been around in Homebrew for some time and are now being released in the App Catalog for webOS 2.0 devices, the stock music player does have a number of features that many people may not be aware of (such as getting access to a scrubber bar). One such example of these is the ability to search Amazon MP3 (if installed) for the artist or to search YouTube for the artist or song title. In addition, if you have Pandora Radio installed, you can also create a Pandora station based on the artist or song. To access these features, just load up a song in the music player and then swipe down from the top-left corner to bring down the Music Application drop-down menu. You will see 3 sections for each of those options (assuming those apps are installed) that you can click to get access to those actions. The screenshot to the right shows you the options you would see if you were listening to Tom Waits' "What's He Building In There?"

you guys are making my stay w/ my sprint pre, quite difficult. I may have to go ahead, and make the move to 2.1....

Thiis is a feature on your Sprint Pre. Don't need to jump ship for this one!

awesome. I had NO IDEA this existed

I found out this option by accident one day. I tend to find new stuff about webOS every week, it is such an awesome OS.

Love the Tom Waits reference, song cracks me up every time I listen to it!
Thanks for the tip!
