All it seems to be able to do is start and stop the default "song" that the phone comes with on it.

Can I get it to do something useful like control and get art from google play music, rdio or pandora? All I seem to have in the options for the smart cover is to get it to show weather and change the colour of the background.

For the price of the cover, I'm not impressed with the lack of real functionality either. Not found any way to make the music function work either (Google Play Music)

I'm also not impressed that the "hinge" has enough wiggle that it will think that it has opened just from movement in your pocket making it light up and then moosh at the lock screen since its in your pocket. Also am p****d that they make a non wireless charging one which I ended up buying accidentally and didnt know for too long to return it as my charging base was on the way from china..

Dont charge with enough current to be any use. The real samsung back will keep up with the phone doing stuff, the cheap pads barely get the phone to full from 40% over the 5-6 hours when I sleep.
