    one thing I noticed, didn't know if you meant for it to do this:

    If you hit pause and then again hit the pause button again... works great.

    BUT if you hit pause and then hit play to start the song again, it takes you back to the first song in your playlist, it does not start the song you have paused...

Does it on a few other compliations that have more than one disc contained in the album as well.
    Can you post a screenshot of it?

    Wow this looks really really great, I'll have to try this out!

    One suggestion; you mention that amp isn't too smart in figuring out The beatles vs The Beatles. Something I've used in the past is when you import the songs, temporarily uppercase the album, artist and title.

    Yeah, it's a design compromise. What if you were looking at your songs, and hit pause, and then backed out of a menu and wanted to get back to another list of songs, you couldn't because when you hit play it would unpause the music instead of going into the menu. Due to the importance of the play button, I think it's best to leave pause all on it's on.

    All of those artist tags are different. AMP sorts hierarchically from Album -> Artist -> Songname.

    AMP sees it as:
    Artist: Eminem; Album: 8 Mile Soundtrack
    Artist: Macy Gray; Album: 8 Mile Soundtrack

    So it sees "8 Mile Soundtrack" as a unique Album for Enimen. And it sees "8 Mile Soundtrack" as a unique Album for Macy Gray.

    This is necessary, because suppose you had the following:

    Artist: The Rolling Stones; Album: Greatest Hits
    Artist: The Doors; Album: Greatist Hits

    If AMP grouped matching album names, then while it would work for the "8 Mile Soundtrack", it would screw up the listings for The Rolling Stones and The Doors.

    This is a "limitation" of both AMP and iTunes (except iTunes has a view where it lumps all the same album names together, which would still fail for the Rolling Stones & Doors example above)

    I had this problem a long time ago, with iTunes. I solved it like this, for Soundtracks.

    Say the original Artist: Album: Song was:
    The Shins : Garden State Soundtrack : New Slang

    I changed it to:
    Soundtracks: Garden State Soundtrack: The Shings - New Slang

    So the "artist" tag is "Soundtracks" (and thus all of my soundstracks for movies are with this artist tag.) And the name of the soundtrack was the "album" tag. And then the artist - songname is the "song name" tag.

    So I'll have like:

    Artist: Soundtracks; Album: Garden State Soundtrack; Song:The Shins - New Slang
    Artist: Soundtracks; Album: Garden State Soundtrack; Song: Coldplay - Dont Panic
    ...
    Artist: Soundtracks; Album: The Life Aquatic; Song: Devo - Gut Feeling
    ... etc

    It works really well for me, in both iTunes and AMP.

    Just a note, I put a little drop shadow on the volume & shuffle icons. It's not uploaded yet, but just so you know, it's noted and will be in the next update.

    Any ideas for the radioSHARK menu? With the FM button, etc.. (Looks like *** just sitting there, off center, etc)

    The first two are in now. (Unless I'm mistaken on what you mean by one click to play a song). The third is there now, minus genre. And shuffleis in there now too, by album or playlist (not genre yet though).

    you go one page down, hold and you gradually increase speed of scrolling in either direction...either scroll individually or pages ?
    The bar is now the only pageup/pagedown buttons on the page with a home/end on the tips. It feels a little weird at first, but you get used to it. I had to do what would be best for a touchscreen. I have no idea bout the speed increase thing.
