    Warning: This post may contain rambling

    I would like the ability to have a few playlists (hotlists if you will) that I can add songs to at the push of one or two buttons.

    The reason being is that I have a fairly large collection of mp3's; sometimes I'll just put the entire collection on random and I'll hear a song that's umm..... hot and I haven't really heard before. It'd be nice to be able to easily collect these songs in a play list so those times I only want to here my favorite songs, I could just load up that playlist.

    I'm working on a 1-5 star rating system. Is this similar to what you mean?

    I think a browse by directory mode would be nice. A fresh skin that was dark with change-able color highlights would be smooth. This way it can be made to match any interior lighting. Other than that I would say keep working on stability.

    lol, oh yeah! It was late last night when i wrote that. But yes that feature is already implemented.

    Radio support would be nice, but I know you would need the hardware to develop that. From what I read the only worthwhile AM/FM tuner is the HQCT module.

    OH YEAH! Heres a request Ive been meaning to ask for - Scrolling in the playlists. Instead of having to repeatedly click the down or up button it would be nice to just push the button and have it scroll.

    If i think of anything else ill let ya know.

    Three more things:

    1) Fade in volume when returning from hibernation.
    2) support mp3gain/aacgain when syncing.
    3) Add scrollbar to the lists: having to press on the pagedown button many times when I want some song from the end of the list and I cant use the search feature because I don't remember the song name is not quite efficient....

    Thanks,
    /Me.

    This would have similar functionality, but another reason why I would want this so I could make a playlist for songs that I like that I know the gf would like. So when she's in the car there's no reason to fight. Or making playlists for certain moods or whatnot. If I'm the only person who would want this, don't even worry about it. Freeway's already contains enough awesomeness for me.

    There should be a way to clear the playlist (if this exists, I have not found it yet).
