Review: Motorola Backflip
The stock Android media player is on board, but good luck finding it. AT&T has buried it in a sub-menu, rather than loading it into the main menu of the Backflip. Users can choose to place a shortcut on the home screen or drag it out of the sub-menu and put it in the main menu. The player software itself has not been tweaked or adjusted at all, save for a link to AT&T's Music Store.
Attaching the Backflip to your computer automatically puts it in mass storage mode and it shows up as a hard drive on your PC. You can drag and drop files directly into the Backflip's Music folder and you're golden.
The player itself remains the bare-bones affair it's been since Day 1. You can sort through music via artist, album, song, playlist, etc. Album art is displayed if it is tagged correctly, and the interface for playing music is simple and easy to use.
