Music & Audio Controls

When you decide that you want to listen to music on your Toshiba Thrive, you can either stream it or load up a few files onto the hard drive via the USB connection and Android's storage utility. If you go the native storage route, once you open the interface you'll be pleasantly surprised by a simple-yet-functional interface native to Honeycomb-running systems.

Once the music is playing, you can control your playback with the standard playback options available to you on the screen, including forward/back, a scrub bar, play/pause, shuffle, repeat, etc. If you'd like, you can also create playlists as well, and edit them as you see fit.

Music & Audio Management

The music and audio file management system of the Toshiba Thrive is actually pretty nice. Though it can take a little getting used to at the start if you don't like the cover splash arrangement, you can change the format in which the files are displayed on the screen with a few taps of your finger. Each screen is as visually appealing and smoothly animated as the last.
