    Whenever I finish listening to a song and press the stop/pause button, I find that the title of the song and playback options remains in the volume up/down menu and I can't seem to get it to go away without restarting the phone. Is there a way to exit the zune music player after listening to a song so it doesn't remain in your volume settings?

    Thanks.

    Why would you want to get rid of it?

    I personally love the fact i can stop it, then continue from where i left off days later.

    This happens with most music apps as well, if it really bothers you, the app dannejanne mentioned will work for you, otherwise don't sweat it, the function doesn't take up any power or anything, and gives you the option to start listening again in an instant without any launching of apps.

    I used to love this feature and used to say the same thing. Then I started playing music via Bluetooth at home and something started happening. When I turned on my home Bluetooth device, my phone started playing the music automatically, which is kind of cool. But it gets annoying when I connect to my car's Bluetooth (Motorola Roadster). I always have to hit pause, everytime it connects. So I started using stop the music. I use a Lumia 900.

    i think that's something that's missing in the old zune. the ability to jump to the now playing list at any time. hope wp8 will also allow link to the music collection from the volume control. they might also want too add shuffle collection by album. shuffle artists by album. genre by album etc while they're at it :D

    You can jump to now playing by bringing up the controls at the top, then tapping on the title/artist.

    After listening to a song with Zune I can't listen to a song on Spotify.

    Unfortunately both Zune and Spotify have their limitations. Spotify can't play songs that I have downloaded to my phone-- songs that are not in Spotify's catalog. Zune forces you to download songs that are on your PC's playlist to your phone and when streaming tracks there is about a 15 second pause between songs. Also I get frequent streaming interruptions with Zune.

    Pay for a app that just corrects something that zune should do on is own?? hell no!

    i prefer to turn off and on my phone than pay for this... nothing against the guy that did the app, but a LOT against M$ by not having a simple option!!!
