    Another, yet small bug, is that when mouse hovering over the "coverflow" button I get the mousetip like I can mark or write. This only when I'm over the text.

    that last bug i believe is just flash player because im just using standard flex created buttons. i think that something is going awry with the double click functionality for the folder selection. somehow it is not firing off correctly to create the xml file. like i said i will check it out tonight and i dont think that it is a big problem to fix. i will let you all know as soon as i get it up and working

    I suggest that instead of using a dbl click create a button..

    btw, when dbl click it only shows the folder structure that is in that folder..

    about the coverflow button:
    it's just that button that react like that, the others are "normal"

    Since I haven't got the chance to test it yet, I'm instead going to make some suggestions on things to do.. *lol*

    It could be that this alredy are, but on the last image I saw it was not.
    Added "artist name" and "album name" in coverflow window, and "now playing" + "next song" below the coverflow window:




    Next, added a "track list" button, that when trigged shows a window with the track playing and so on. It has buttons so that you can step up and down on list, and it shows album art on images on track list (in this example it plays a certain album, if shuffle it would of course show the shuffle list with cover art showing on each song):



    Maybe, there should have been a "page down" and a "page up" arrow buttons there as well.

    Sorry to do this in the middle of the bug fixing but this is things that I really miss in itunes, and that would make the cover flow experience a lot better and user friendly..

    btw, do play button change to "pause" if the player plays a song? that would be a must.. (or a separate button for that)

    thanks for the input and ideas. most of the features you are asking for are currently present in one form or another. there are now the album names in cover flow. if you select an album to play via coverflow you can click the coverFlow button which would have changed to "list view" to view the current album's list of songs with the current song playing. when a song is playing the name of the song will display along with the artist who sings it. play button does change to pause. i am planning to implement these and other features as time goes, but obviously first i will get the stupid thing actually working for everybody.

    once again thanks for the input. i would love to eventually implement them all in some way, until then i will be bug fixing.

    just letting everybody know that there is a new version ready to be downloaded. this version makes the app usable on a windows machine. it also improves reliablity for the mac platform, so all users should download the new version.

    Issues/bugs/thoughts:

    1) playlist support? I find this crucial, I have driving playlists, softer music playlists, favorites, etc.
    2) Ok, I selected an artist, album, song. It played about ten seconds of it (until the progress bar was full) then skipped to the next song, ten seconds, next, ten seconds. random clicking got me back to the first song, and the progress bar moved PAST the box and moved all the way across the screen... while playing the song in full. A third attempt to play the song resulted in a normally paced progress bar, and playing the whole song. This seems to be an issue with using the "NEXT" button. Yep, I was able to reliably reproduce these by using the "NEXT" button.
    3) A second press of ATT does not return the volume to normal. VERY thoughtful feature btw imho ftw
    4) Is it a limitation of AIR that holding "vol up" will not cause a continuous press? That would be nice, too.
    5) Shuffle: functional in this version? I couldn't tell what/if it shuffled. An indicator of it being on or off would be nice.
    6) Ability to sort by artist/genre/title/album would be cool but not nescessary.

    So far, though, it kicks donkey. Can't wait for the next update.

    this will be implemented in the very near future. i am considering 2 things in this area. the first is being able to make a playlist from within the app (very simple to implement on my side). second importing playlists from itunes or whatever other program a playlist is made in (much harder for me to implement, although not impossible by any means)

    what would you guys like? i am assuming both, so that is what direction i am heading at the moment

    this is a known bug that i have been running into. it is caused by the way flash player 9 handles music. there is one way to play a .mp3 file and whole other way to play something like a .m4a file. very weird and it has been causing some real issues for me. the other part of the issue for the progress bar is caused because it takes a moment for flash to get the length of the song from the id3 tag and so it screws up the progress bar. i have pretty much already fixed that bug and that will be in the next update.

    speaking of update. air provides a nice auto-update feature that will allow the app (when connected to the internet) to check and see if it is current and if not it will automatically download and install the newest version. I am going to implement this for the next beta release.

    3) A second press of ATT does not return the volume to normal. VERY thoughtful feature btw imho ftw
    this was a speed to release problem. i was coding to fast to stop and think of basic functionality. this also will be fixed in the next release

    4) Is it a limitation of AIR that holding "vol up" will not cause a continuous press? That would be nice, too.
    im not sure if that is an air problem or not. i honestly never thought of that, but i will look into it further, the must be a way. and honestly the volume controls are only for the flash player and not the actual system (os volume). i am not 100% sure but i dont think air can give access to system info such as volume. it was designed to have the system volume at 100% and then control the music inside flash.

    5) Shuffle: functional in this version? I couldn't tell what/if it shuffled. An indicator of it being on or off would be nice.
    shuffle has not been implemented yet. the button is just a place holder until i can acutally implement that feature

    6) Ability to sort by artist/genre/title/album would be cool but not nescessary.
    i agree and it should not be too difficult to add, however it will rely completely on the individual file's meta data or id3 tag. the problem that i am running into is getting the metadata from a .aac, m4a song. .mp3 work fine however. i will look into this more but it will take some time.
