Review: Treo 755p
The 755p comes with a third party music player called Pocket Tunes. It has an interface similar to Windows Media Player for Pocket PC, including a space to display the the current track and artist, on-screen controls, and a small playlist preview for a few upcoming tracks.
Although the stand-alone version of Pocket Tunes has been upgraded to support many modern features, the Treo still ships with version 3.0.9, which has a significantly more limited feature set. It can only play mp3, WMA and Ogg Vorbis encoded files - not AAC.
Pocket Tunes can sort through tracks based on ID3 information, but can only load tracks into the playlist from one folder at a time. So if you like to skip around a lot, we strongly recommend putting all your music in a single folder. If you are a neat freak and can't stand to have all your tracks co-mingling then you can create custom playlists on the device with tracks from anywhere.
