    When you click a new song from the library to play, it automatically clears the playlist and adds all the songs in the list in the library.

    You could do this by creating a new skin design and then just playing around with the positions of objets in each screen.

    You can now use the rating line as follows:

    <button action="rating" highlight="horizontal" left="656" top="422" width="166" height="55" class="5" />

    You can change horizontal to vertical to do what you're doing. Grab the attached binary, and it will let you do this.

Freeway's already contains enough awesomeness for me.
    I'd have to agree with this. My wife gets lost enough with there being a computer in my car. It would be great to be able to create play lists.
    I think the ratings are a great concept, but having ratings and play lists would be perfect! I know my idea of a 5 star song is not the same as my wifes idea of a 5 star song

    is there anyway in the source code of freeway that you could declare the labels and pictures as Global functions instead of form specific functions? this would allow more flexibility in skinning by allow the labels and pictures to be use on any form instead of just the one specific form

    Way ahead of you. I'm tidying up the code a bit and making a bunch of classes to do exactly this.
