    Persistent music/volume controls

    I've recently put Android x86 on a netbook to see how it compares with Tiny7 + Roadrunner, and to see if it provides better integration/syncing with my android phone.

    I've downloaded 5 frontends now, and they all seem to suffer the same problem: as soon as you open an app, you lose access to the "standard" controls of music pause/play and volume buttons. Maybe that's not an issue if you're just using a tablet in a cradle, but with an embedded screen with no real buttons it makes simple operations really annoying.

    So, is anyone aware of a launcher/frontend that keeps these buttons visible, just like RideRunner/Centrafuse/DriveLine does?

    A friend of mine, is using android tablet on his car. no front end. just a madia player called "black player"
    He had the same problem as you, but he found out that you can solve this problem in 2 steps.

    1) find media controll widgets that seem nice to you
    2) then there is an app (dont remember name but can ask), that makes any widget, a presistent one !

    but this way you will have the controlls, even when inside the front end... !
