Apps and SD Card
#1
I have noticed that most apps have a real difficulty using the SD card mounted in /media; as in they do not always have the ability to even browse but expect all media it will be playing and organizing to be stored in a default music or video directory in /home.
I think most users will be storing most multimedia on a SD card yet the only way to get for example Lolypop(music player) is to launch it from the command line with the SD directory holding my music.  Similar problems with Totem made worse by the absolutely minimal video codec support.
On desktop Linux I have options to choose apps like Audacious and VLC which are happy to let me manage my media rather than taking over organization with no other options when I just want playback.

ok, I got there and used my soft keyboard to navigate and got it set, touch commands work but seem laggy.
