    Your wiki page mentions that with your mod installed the app saves bookmarks anytime certain actions are performed (pausing, hitting next, hitting previous, etc.) So does this happen with every single song playing? Wouldn't the cookies build up after awhile? I would think people wouldn't want bookmarks saved of every song they play.

    Would it make more sense to have the option to bookmark a song with a user selection of some sort?
    Using the cookie method, yes they would build up. Perhaps a way to prevent cookie build-up is to just limit the number of cookies to the most recent 20 or so. When a 21st cookie is created, just delete the oldest cookie.

    Also, since most people just want this feature for podcasts and audiobooks, perhaps you could just auto-create bookmarks for only those genres. That's how iPod/iPhone works, and if you could do that, it would be fantastic.

    Yes that's the exact feature i'm talking about.

    food for thought on that. so i looked at how ipods, or at least my old 80 GB 5g does it. for normal songs it seems that skipping forward and backward does not hold the place. However, where you to turn off the player it will resume from the same spot in the song. Interestingly though if you're on a podcast and in the middle of a song it will not allow you to skip forward to the next podcast just by hitting next. When you do that it goes back to the top menu but till holds your place. even if you have ten podcasts from the same podcast maker when you start to play the file it doesn't list all the the podcasts. It says 1 0f 1. as opposed to if it was an album where it would have said 1 of 10. So it seems if you back out of an mp3 by basically going back through the menus it holds your spot but not if you try to skip forward or backwards.

    The plan now is to implement the manual bookmarking feature, along with the automatic "restore position after reloading application" feature. The latter will be more difficult, but if it's possible I think it would be very useful to most people.

    I don't think I'm going to tackle automatically saving the position of all podcasts and audiobooks. For podcasts, the DrPodder app is available. And for audiobooks, the last read book will be saved automatically (if I can get that working). And there will also be manual bookmarking available. So if someone is reading more than one book, they can use manual bookmarks.

    Apple (and now Palm) may think that people sort CD's by title but they are wrong. We sort our DVDs by title but our music is not by title but by artist.

    Please allow us to view album mode sorted by artist.

    Don't understand this one. isn't album name the reason for having an album category. It would seem illogical to click "album" but the results show "artists." if you want to "view album by artists" why not just start in "artist." maybe i'm not understanding it.

    Can you please implement this? Palm's built in music app is incredibly unreliable when it comes to .m3u playlists. Take a look at this thread for a better perspective.

    If I wanted to use Itunes, then I would have gotten an iPhone

    This would be great. I'm looking for something to use with audio books and your remix app does everything I need except for the bookmarking. Thanks for your work.

    I can't change the way the Pre interprets playlists. Playlists are provided to the app via the media service. I don't have control of which playlists this service provides to the app.

    I just want to thank the developer for this app. It is a really nice app although I admit I am easily impressed and totally ignorant of what goes into creating such a thing. Nevertheless, I felt it important to thank the developer for his or her time and efforts and I look forward to playing with it as so far I have only given it the most cursory examination. Thanks again

    great job! this app will certainly take the place of the pre music player on my Pre. Keep up the good work!

    is there anyway to get gapless payback working with your application? Also, I would love a "skip when shuffling" feature like you get with itunes and the ipod. Those may be beyond the scope of what you're doing here but those features would be really nice!

    trying to add streaming/share support for local shares. pm me if interested.

    Can you also look into a volume control in the app. One similar to the way you can choose what part of the song you want. If that makes sense

    Awesome upgrade you made. Just a simple request though. Could you possibly add a feature to create playlists from the app. It is such a hassel to have to hook up the phone to the comp, open its folder and create a list and then unplug and there is my playlist. The palm centro was able to create playlists and I believe this superior phone should be able to as well. After that you seem to be the guy to tackle the photo area of this phone. We should be able to rotate pics and move them into different albums and even create albums right from the phone. Centro could do it and so therefor this phone should be able to do it. Thanks for the Remix, I look forward to some upgrades.
    Thanks Again,

    great app, loving all the new innovations... i was thinking though, for the ABC part on the top middle when in artist mode, since it's used to avoid scrolling through all the artists or tracks or whatever, it would be cool if you didnt have to scroll through the letters themselves when hitting the button, i think that if you had all the letter up on the screen in alphabetical order it would be a lot faster and it could take up most of the screen and fit really well i feel

    How about a wireless transmitter to transmit music to a stereo? a while back i had the LG Fusic phone, and it used to have that feature. it was amazing and prevented me from dumping money on wire/cord trasmitter.

    Is this possible? or is there certain hardware that the pre needs in order to make this work?

    Thanks in advance!
    I don't know if the right hardware exists in the Pre to do this unaided, but I'm using two products to do this. First is the Motorola T505 speaker/FM-transmitter. This bluetooth device pairs up with my Pre nicely and transmits to my FM stereo better than any other device I've used (such as iTrip.)

    Another is the Insignia NS-BT300F iPod Adapter. This is another bluetooth device that is designed to plug into any iPod dock. I normally use it on my iHome clock/stereo and use my Pre to play music through it. I've also used it on my old iTrip FM transmitter (which I used with my *virtually retired* iPod classic.) It worked OK but after I got my Motorola T505 I had no more need for that.

    I HATE METADATA. PLEASE, somebody design a hack or an app or an option whereby I can browse the mp3's by their actual filenames, preferrably using the actual folder structure.
    I'm with you on this one!
