Is there any good system for Android to let you catalog your music, create playlists, and copy it to your device? Bonus points if it can let you reject/delete music and have it reflected in the UI on the device?

Kies bites. It's just awful. It doesn't show metadata properly, and it's horrible at creating playlists.

I've discovered playing music from the phone is far far far more battery efficient than streaming Pandora, so I'd better get some music on there in a way that's easy to play.

Doubletwist and WinAmp both do what you want, I have tried them both and I think they are OK but not great. I don't think you are going to find something that rivals iTunes/apple devices in terms of this. Well I haven't been able to find something anyway, maybe (hopefully) someone can prove me wrong???

Media monkey looks perfect, thank you :-) I'll give it a go later.

I've never used a windows phone... once I've finished my month Android trial anyone want to loan me one to check out?! ;)

So far Media Monkey is very good :) However there's one little thing it doesn't do, which is sync ratings back to the computer. MM supports it, but only if you can mount your S3 as a drive letter. You can't do that with an S3, at least not easily.

So until an S3 can be mounted easily as a USB drive MM can't sync. But it will copy files to the device, play them, and there are manual ways to do a sync using something called PlayerPro. I'm not going to bother right now though.
