    Lightbulb [Frontend][Alpha] Victoria



    Still very much a work in progress. It's not much to look at, has very little in the way of touchscreen interface, because it's for the most part voice-controlled.
    The upper image shows the mp3-playing mode, which interfaces with the iTunes library; it can be instructed to play a particular song (e.g. "play Poem") or a playlist ("queue Purchased Music"), and, of course, to play/pause/show visualizations/etc.
    The lower image shows movie mode; completely unfinished as yet, but it'll eventually display a list of all movies in a folder and will then play them either in the window or full-screen.
    There's no screenshot for the only other part of it that's actually working at the moment, because it's pretty much just a voice-controlled interface for the OS X built-in DVD Player app. Standard again, play/pause/rewind/whatever, as well as controls for DVD menus (up/down/left/right/enter/main menu).
    Eventually, the buttons at far left and right will dial your phone via bluetooth and interface with a GPS app, respectively. Since I don't have the software for either as yet, they don't work particularly well.

    Comments?

    EDIT
    Alpha version now available. Download

    Looks good. Any idea when we can get a version to play with. Maybe we can even do a little colaboration if you would like. When you have a version to play with I'm sure there will plenty to comment on. Keep up th hard work.

    Yeah, I can probably get an alpha version up sometime tomorrow. I'm not awake enough at the moment to handle putting together a .dmg.

    Thumbs up

    How do you plan on using the Bluetooth phone? Using apple's addressbook, or an external program like BluePhoneElite?

    Will it be able to use an external program for navigation like Navigator within a frame so you don't have to leave the frontend?

    Keep up the good work and don't give up!

    If I can get Apple's address book to dial the phone, I'll use that; otherwise, I'll have to find something else. Thanks for the lead on BPE - I'd been having trouble finding anything that could do the dialing stuff.
    As to the navigation question - it really depends on what software I can find.. and also whether I can even figure out how to do that in AS Studio.

    Edit - alpha now available. Bottom of first post.
