    I know you were referring to only the scrub bar. I debated about adding it or even other controls. I guess I envisioned this screen as an info display that you temporarily displayed. I wanted the whole screen dedicated to the lyrics.

    I don't think adding the slider bar all the way at the bottom would take too much away from the lyrics as long as it stayed hovering over the lyrics (i.e. the lyrics still took up the whole page). However, it doesn't make sense to add the slider bar without the time indicators. But adding the time indicators would mess up the look of the lyrics (text on text).

    So I'm not sure if this is a good idea. I could implement some type of hiding panel that would display the slider and time indicators, but I'm not sure I really want to spend the time on something that most people may not have a use for.

    Are you saying you can load a song in the original music player and it shows the album art but in my version it doesn't? I haven't experienced this. I'm staring at album art on the player right now actually.

    In general with the music player, many of my songs do not display the album art, but this was always true.

    Yep. It takes up barely any space. The rest of the screen is for the lyrics. A really easy solution to the concern on text-on-text for the scrub bar would be to implement the webOS fade convention at the bottom. It'll be consistent with scrolling content, as well as provoding a dark background for the time underneath the scrub bar.

    There was some discussion over this early in this thread. Do a search to find some suggestions that people had concerning how to tag your music files.

    I have a couple of questions and could not find my answers when using the search forum feature:

    1. Is it possible to swipe to delete a song within your app? If not, is USB the only way to delete?

    2. Is there currently support for Windows Media Player playlists (.wpl files)? If so, what do I need to do for Remix to recognize the playlist?

    Thanks again for your work, and thanks in advance for your help.
    1. Download the app called Internalz from Homebrew in order to delete songs
    2. Save your playlists in Windows Media Player as file type .m3u

    A thousand pardons if this has been asked already, I took a quick look and didn't see anything.

    I often have my Pre with me in the car and hooked up to my stereo. This works well except the screen turns off after a couple minutes which makes it a bit unsafe to change songs/etc while driving.

    Is there a way to have your app keep the screen on while playing? I know it's rough on the battery so this could be an option (I'm lucky that I can charge it at the same time).

    In any event, this is easily one of the best apps for the Palm so far. Please keep up the excellent work!!

    Yeah that's one of my irks too. I don't think the music app should be the one to keep the screen on though. It should be a system-wide option to either keep it on all the time or keep it on while charging. I hope Palm adds this as an option.

    I google'd and found the unpublished service call to prevent the display from turning off if the device is charging; however, I'm hesitant to add this to the code since I don't know if it's fully tested. If it was, I would assume Palm would have included it on their "Screen and lock" preferences app.

    Wonderful work on the app, it is amazing what you have done. I love all the new features, they are well thought out. Thank you!!

    If you are taking any suggestions for any additional features, I have one. A "sleep" timer to turn off the player or stop the current playlist would be useful for those of use who like to use our Pre's for bedtime music

    I indicated in my release post that flylist shuffling doesn't work. When you select "Shuffle All" on the flylist page, it'll load up the flylist, but in alphabetical order. However, the songs should play to end of the list. When it reaches the end, the player will stop unless you toggled the "repeat" icon at the bottom.

    Seriously...you really use your cell phone for bedtime music?

    I assume your charger is near your bed then...because my Pre will drain pretty quickly overnight even if no apps are running.

    You can keep the requests coming, but at this stage I'll only be adding new features that I think are really cool/useful or I can envision many people being interested in. I think this feature is really targeted towards a specific niche.

    There is a new program to keep your screen on:

    Nodoz.

    Nodoz works with any program to keep the display on. But wouldn't the better solution be to allow keyboard control for Last-Pause-Next? That way you don't have to look down and you save killing your battery life if you are not on a charger.

    Just updated to the new version. I'm not having the album art problem that was stated a few posts up. Looks good and all is well. Nice addition on the lyrics interface display (title, artist, album).

    Thanks again Dan! Excellent app!

    Hey DanPLC, thanks for what has got to be the best Homebrew app out there! Forget about Homebrew, one of the best apps for the Pre period.

    I've liked the ongoing changes to the program (namely the addition of "flylists," the lyric option and the vertical swipe for the artist music list. The only thing missing to make this basically, have no need for any replacement would be sound enhancing features. That is to say a 5 band EQ and maybe some sound expansion plug-ins.

    I don't know if it is possible given what can or can't be done in WebOS programming terms. But if an equalizer is possible then please deliver us one. Customizing sound has always been a big deal to me. It can make up for the weaknesses of headphones and or recordings.

    Thanks again for the absolutely great app!

    I really like this app. Don't know if it is possilbe, but I would like to have an equalizer.

    With the latest version, I am not getting album art in the Artist view. It works in the Album view and with the original "official" app.

    The next release (probably tonight or tomorrow) is going to handle strangely-named songs/artists/albums a bit better. I'm hoping this resolves the issue that some people have.

    This has been requested many times. Unfortunately, there is no way to do this with the current SDK.

    Hey Feud,
    I'm not sure if its just specific to my car radio, but i can use my stereo controls to fast forward, rewind and move to the next song. I don't have to touch my pre after i sync it to the car stereo. Try it. Let me know if it works for you.
