    Question Default music player?

    Hi-
    I have a few players on my Atrix 2 (DoubleTwist, PowerAMP, streaming apps, stock player), as each offers something the others don't. When I connect my phone to my car stereo head unit via bluetooth, DoubleTwist begins playing immediately. Is there any way I can change this behaviour? I'd prefer it be PowerAMP, as it's interface is easier to navigate and it offers EQ control. I'd be interested in hearing from those of you who stream music in your car (or house, for that matter) via BT, and how you've gotten it to work as you would like. I have yet been unable to find any settings that allow a preference. Many thanks.

    Did you checked the settings on Double Twist? Or perhaps the settings on the dock interface.

    I've been through the settings everywhere-apps, phone, you name it. Nowhere can I find a setting for a default player. One post on another forum suggested using the file manager (My Files?) to select a music file and then choose the default app for it; no can do. Probably the thing to do is uninstall DoubleTwist and see what happens. That might at least give me a clue. Should I actually learn anything, I'll post back here.

    As it turns out, no app has been yet set on my phone as the default, or so it seems. When I browse to my Music folder to open an MP3 file, I am prompted to complete the action using several apps, but (of course) the one I want is not listed (PowerAMP). Sigh....

    Android strikes again. I hate to say it, but I suspect this is one of the reasons people buy iPhones. At least in their walled garden, better control over such things is possible. Anyhoo, I'll keep at it.

    I think on settings/applications/ you have to uncheck restore app data from apps if I'm not mistaken. You can also go to settings applications/manage applications/ double twist and delete the data from it and see if that works.

    Tried the last suggestion, but am not near my car, so I'll report back later. If it still comes up on BT connect, I'll uninstall DT and see what does come up. Fun....
