    ICEł - Mac Front End

    Hi guys,
    First of all I would like to thank all of you for providing such a vast wealth of knowledge to newbies like myself.
    About 18 months ago I decided that I would try to replace my headunit with a computer. After reading how easy it was to do this with a mac mini, I decided to buy one to play with. At the time this was a big risk as I had not touched a Mac for 15 years! After about a week of learning/playing with OSX, I realized that I had wasted too many years with pc's/windows. I quickly sold my PC and started my collection of Apples. After trying every front end solution that I could find, most of which I was very happy with, my brother and I decided to have a go at writing our own (mainly because we needed a good reason to learn Xcode). Anyway, after 3 months of coding this is what we have come up with: ICEł

    1. This was developed by two guys with zero Mac experience.
    2. This was developed by two guys with zero Cocoa/Xcode experience.
    3. This was developed by two guys with full-time jobs.
    4. This was inspired by YOU GUYS!!

    Your feedback would be much appreciated as we are about to start work on version 2.0.

    Thanks again.

    Awsome interface! i love how easy it is to navigate around, very similar to the iphone!
    I'm not a fan of the skin, but it isn't bad either.
    Definitely best mac fe i've seen so far.

    wow! looks great guys, will be watching this with interest, probably the best integration of coverflow/iphone-esk track selection, love the ability to select the album from coverflow and then choose the tracks from the drop down screen.

    now just to add gps/google maps/war driving/multiple display support and the ability to make cappuccinos and then we are onto a real winner

    seriously, well done
