    Really liking what i see so far! This is awesome progress on the mac car frontend area. The two issues for me are the massive amounts of memory ICE consumes when i have it load all my music (Around 800mb or physical memory it took last time), and not being able to seek through songs currently playing.

    This looks excellent though! Thanks for the great app.

    ok, here's my thoughts on V2...

    I like it, new options are great!

    however, here's some things I have noticed:

    1. When choosing songs from the "covers" side of the main menu, they skip really bad, the mac mini (ppc version) will beach ball a little too. However, when songs are played from the "guy singing" side, I get no skips

    2. When viewing songs from the "guy singing" side, the list only shows some of the tracks in the folder... for example, I have one band's folder that has 14 plus albums in it, yet only about 15 songs show up as opposed to the 100+ tracks that should be available from that artist.

    I'm running a Mac Mini PPC G4, 1.24GhZ, 1GB RAM

    I'll post back if i find something else.

    Thanks for a great application and keep up the excellent work!

    ICEł will use about 150MB of RAM with a 3GB library, and about 170MB with a 20GB Library. However, as soon as you use coverflow, the RAM usage will jump to about 600MB and 3GB (1.5GB RAM + 1.5GB Swap File) respectively. If you are running out of memory, the only way to prevent this is don't use coverflow. Another issue that we are having with coverflow, is releasing layers (covers). The only way to release the memory is to quit ICEł.

    and not being able to seek through songs currently playing.
    Relax, it will happen.

    This looks excellent though! Thanks for the great app.
    No, Thank you.

    I would also like to request a "Now Playing" screen with a timeline that you can tap to reposition the playback. I really like the Neon BoomBox Now Playing screen, it has the album cover, Song, Artist, Album, Track, timeline, volume and playback controls all on one convenient screen. Something like that would be great for ICE3.
    Any day is a good day for golf.

    We have a few other features to finish before we can start on a "Now Playing" screen, but I have an idea that should work.

    WOW! I am truly blown away by this. You've done a really great job on this. Just upgraded to Leopard so I can finally try this out and boy am i glad i did. I see you have plans to implement the Wii Remote which i am really anticipating. It's basically all i use in the car since i broke my touchscreen glass. What do you have in store for it. As long as there are keyboard shortcuts Remote Buddy can be used to map the functions of ICE3. I really like being able to change the intro sound so it says welcome Matthew LOL.

    Thanks. Keep up the great progress.

    Thanks onepuff.
    Keyboard, Wii remote and Apple remote are all on the drawing board for the next release.
    Yes, ICEł will be able to work with Remote Buddy, however, my plans are for ICEł to be able to pair with the Wii remote also. (Good for those who don't need or own Remote Buddy).

    Thanks again.

    FM and XM are both on the drawing board. We will be asking the community for help/requests for this when we get to it.
