Samsung Galaxy S2 as main mp3 player


Oct 26, 2011
Hi everybody, first time poster, new Android user.

I recently got the SG2 as a replacement for my iPhone 3g. I use my phone as my main mp3 player throughout the day and I have a question regarding music player apps. Is it possible to search within a playlist for a specific song? For example in the stock music app, when I create a playlist of say 150 songs and I want to search for a specific song rather than scroll through the list and find it, if I use the "search" hard button and find a song, clicking on that song clears the playlist and plays only that song. Ideally, I would like to play whatever song I searched for and have the playlist resume normally when the song is finished. The same holds true for the Winamp App. In apple iOS, at the top of every playlist was a search bar that would search within the given playlist but that does not seem to be the case in Android. Is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance for your help!
