I couldnt ignore the feature. my friend in the same position but with a droid and uses two different players: one for music and the other for books. even he had to admit that getting to his tunes was more of an exercise especially when your phone is in an armband.
To each his own.
I find the music experience on Android to be a little better than iOS. I can choose which player I want. I can have a DSP if I want. The particular music player I use, you can have music controls on the lock screen too. That makes pausing/playing/skipping/whatever pretty easy. I don't know if all music players on Android do this, but when I unplug my headphones from my phone it stops the music and I can go right back to the same place when I stick them back in.
I really don't like using iTunes on the PC either. I'd rather not be locked into that. I know I don't have use it to listen to music on the PC, but I can use another app and just put music on my SD card with my 'droid.
