    I just pushed an update with a few fixes. Still need to figure out the volume slider issue, but an issue that_kid brought to my attention about the music button background has been fixed.

    I've also enabled to use album art as the background, but it's quite low quality. Android resizes the images to 300x300 (I believe) and don't have anyway to download my own yet.

    I didn't think I'd figure the volume thing out tonight, but I got it. Oh yeah. New apk pushed.

    Anyway you can get android to treat the album art as a normal image rather than albumart

    When using album art does your app look for embedded images in the mp3 or a file in the same folder with a certain filename. I have both so not sure which its using. Wondering if it relies on an embedded image you may be able to get round the resizing by have it look for a file named "cover.jpeg" as an example then it may change how android handles the image. Is the artist image working yet if so how do I set it up does it need a jpeg with a certain filename or is it also using embedded art? great work !!

    frontend

    swipe works great going to all songs then trying to do a search crashs the app everytime. Also some audio corruption when adjusting the volume control but it could be just my rom.

    When adding songs, the Android system puts them all in a database. I've been using the built in API calls to access that database to get the media. So the album art used is the embedded images. I'm not sure about using images in the folder. I will look into it later on, I'm off to work now.
    As for search, I was working on it the last few days to improve it. And it works much better, but I didn't check it on the all songs list, but I've found the problem and should be able to fix it easily. Until then sit tight.

    Thanks again for the input, it's very helpful.

    Two small little fixes just pushed. I'll hopefully get to more tonight, but for now that's that.
