    The icons thing I haven't fixed yet. I know what the problem is, but I don't know why it's happening. Can you give details? After launching Tomtom, are you coming back with the back button, home button or another method? Anything else that seems relevant would be good too.

    I'm not really sure what the problem is, but I've made some changes that might fix it. I've been unable to duplicate the issue. Take a look and let me know.

    I think you can disregard my post about the cut off icons the rom im using on odroid is only alpha and most likely linked to that I cant reproduce it on nexus 7. As far as my gps goes it seems to be connected but never gets a lock do you think my device is faulty. When in the same position with my nexus 7 it gets gps lock straight away.

    The last update has fixed the icon issue they are no longer being cut off works great now, as does the swipe to skip. Something else I was thinking of would it be possible for the music app to download an artist image and store it on the device and have it display that image as a dynamic background image that changes with the now playing song. Also have it so it only downloads picture over wifi as an option. I used to use ubermusic app on my phone and loved the way it displays the artist as the background(big fan of metadata). Was thinking of the album cover art but thought an artist image would be better or maybe a choice of either? Just a thought. One other thing I noticed with the music app there is no "songs" list only playlist/artists/album/radio anyway to include it6 to display all songs? Thinking of this for passenger to make a playlist on the fly. Cheers and thanks for the great frontend.

    Good, I'm glad the icon issue is fixed, and swipe to skip is working too.
    I'll look into the idea for the artist art. I'll have to find a site that offers an API that will provide the art. I should be able to use the existing album art as the background, assuming it's of high enough quality. If I can find a suitable API for the artist image, I'll add an option for both, as myself would prefer the album art vs the artist.
    I don't know why I didn't make a "song" shortcut. I've been working on the media listing the last couple of days (should be some decent performance gains), I'll add it to the list.

    Thanks for the input, I'm glad my work has been appreciated.

    http://pandora.com/xml/music/artist/

    example usage:
    http://pandora.com/xml/music/artist/santana
    http://pandora.com/xml/music/artist/the+rolling+stones (use + instead of a space) or just urlencode

    Cheers!



    It's free, requires no login or credentials. It's just something Pandora makes available to anyone. Returns a metric TON of artist information along with artist image (as URL).

    Substitute json for xml to receive the response in json format.

    I've added the all songs list bluc requested. Also I've started laying the framework for using album art or artist art as the background image. Should be fairly simple to get up and running.
