    No file search on android??

    Why is there no search mechanism on android? Since none of the music players recognize folders of music, which is irritating in itself, I'd at least like to be able to search for mp3 files as well as other files on my SD card.

    On my iPod touch I can easily search for files and songs individually.

    It also seems to be a pain trying to create playlists easily for my N1. What is the best and easiest way to do this?

    These are the only couple of quirks left to deal with for my N1 at which point it will completely replace my iPod touch.

    Settings -> Search -> Searchable Items

    Check "Music" (and whatever else you want).

    This would be fantastic if it worked. It can't even find files that I know are on there, with simple file names. It simply doesn't work at all sometimes.

    Go to settings, search, searchable and uncheck web. Work 90% better for what you wanted to do.
    Depending on what app you use if you hit the search key it will do a search on that application's environment, so if it's a web application it will most likely do it's job. Good thing we have a choice, and you can still search the web by hitting the arrow.
    Be patient

    Talking about ipods go ahead and try an application called


    his is the beta version of the (aka Cubed) music player.
    official site
    go to market from N1

    Also included a scroll handle for faster navigation
    (Hopefully) fixed headset handling for 2.2
    Fixed app2sd (beware it breaks widgets once the is mounted on the PC)

    I recommend you trying under Settings, View Mode, and select Morph Flow.
