    Touchscreen-specific frontend found...

    Hey all,
    Just found this, which somebody might find useful...I personally think the skin could use some work, but that's what we do here . Good to have more options.

    Link to the project's homepage

    That's pretty interesting. Once I get my MM I'm just going to download and buy as many frontends as possible and see if I can't get a good comparison going. Have you used it yet?

    I have been in touch for some time wih this guy. He had another software called the SimiliPod. I actually sent him an email to see if he could develop something new as a frontend. After some email exchanges and ideas, I see that he has finished this project. I guess it wasnt hard to compile it since all he did was to use the Similipod engine and skin it differentl and add Video support.

    No, haven't used it yet -- I'm a Mac user in general, but my carPC is an XP machine (needed good nav software, otherwise I'd just spend my days wandering the countryside, trying to get home )

    You can download it here:

    I think all it needs is a nice skin and few bugs fixed, but it looks very promissing. The thing is all the actual application work in the background. Its basically a remote skin for iPohot, iTunes and Quicktime.

    nice. don't like the skin, but shows the concept can be done. however, i would be weary of using any apple patents in my software *points to Ipod like scroll wheel* Apple very much defends its stuff.

    No, but I did . On the front page, under the screenshot, the second sentence is "Time limited Demo version ( 31.3.2005 )" -- in my haste to get the news posted, I assumed that meant non-free and didn't bother to read the "Online Purchase" section, in which it states that the software is free. That'll teach me to post before coffee...
