    No, your able to have them as separate buttons in the "media" screen. Not in the main menu

    Yeah, like that too

    embedded application functionality
    osk has to wait for builded list..
    no optional labels, functions or code to add to skin
    Updates.. too bad you had to redesign the code
    the use of percent in skins, prefer pixel, or both
    create own screens with all funtionality
    still using it

    I love Frodoplayer and can't wait for take 4. Two things that I think may need improvement:

    1- When opening Navigation (either Routis or iGuidance) for the first time, it does not fully imbed and Task bar is visible at first. Once I hit the "Hide" button and then re-open it then it is fine.
    2- When playing songs, it always shows "time elapsed", even if I have "time remaining" checked. Not that it matters too much as I can't see anything that small while driving without my reading glasses! Thanks!

    The fastforward and rewind functions do not work as hotkeys,

    Implement new crossfade feature in WMP,

    Still getting choppy visualizations (maybe a fullscreen option without the buttons would help),

    Volume at resume from hibernation is always a hassle
    A fade in would be really nice,

    other than that,
    awesome stuff

    It would be nice if we had videos separate from music (already mentioned).
    Also, another thing is the full screen visualization... instead of having the visualization full screen and the buttons on top of it, would it be possible to shrink the vis down and put the buttons, etc. underneath of it?

    I also would like to see XM integrated better into Frodo, so I can launch GPS, etc. while still playing music from XM.

    I think a lot of people hold the touchscreen to right click, which means that you can't hold the volume button down to adjust the volume. AFAIK the right button isn't used, so it seems like it would at least make sense to have an option to have either the right or the left button provide access.

    I am really excited about being able to control frodoplayer from external processes, but I haven't had time to look into those features yet, so I can't comment on that, but, keep up the good work.

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.

    its hard to say you are doing something wrong.... I mean I think you have the best frontend out there...

    but more frequent updates would be cool... I think Guino releases updates on almost a weekly basis as he adds stuff.. I do realize that you are basically re-writing frodoplayer right now.. so i understand that its not possible...

    also I would like it if we can show one screen element more than once on a screen... like the video screen.. If I could show it in more than one spot.. creating a dual screen skin would be as easy as cake... but then again you might be limited there by windows media player.. I dont know...

    oh well keep up the good work!

    Being able to embed other applications in the skin, like other applications already do, is most important for me.

    Updates. No matter if they are just status updates where you are or software updates.

    I'm happy with everything else .

    I think if you just updated us more about what was coming, Like progress on what is developed, is being developed, and won't be developed.

    That would keep the frodo-community thriving and making skins/plugins etc.
