    I think you are right in some way. I mean, it could be different for each person what to find easy to handle.

    But what the principle is concerned, my opinion rests the same. If you place the most often used buttons on the edge of screen, the would be easier to find - less chance to push a wrong area.

    What the skin is concerned, I'm just testing a few things at the moment. It should change.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    Currently : Audi A6 - no install

    Second install : VW Passat '97 CarPC
    First install : '87 Audi 80 CarPC

    Hey Confused: is that AIMEE?

    How is it coming along? I am lost, has a beta been released for the UK meet? I thought I heard some comments about that.... when will it be released any ideas? Lots of promise from AIMEE, I'm anxious to see if it performs!

    RoyN,

    Yeah, that is the audio player screen of AIMEE, well, the default skin for it anyway

    She's coming along quite well, there's a few tweaks/fixes still to be done (some of which I found while showing it off at the UK meet), and a few more features that need to be implemented! Still no timeframe for a Beta yet, but we want to be happy with her before she's released to the public for their criticism!

    Where can I get info about what is going to be in it etc? Are the updates/fixes/new features going to take this long also or is it just the initial release takes so long? (Dont mean to diss, or disrespect, but I dont know how to pose this question without sounding rude...sorry)

    The most used buttons when driving are forward or back unless your trying to change the album but this shows that to change the song back or forward you just feel the corner of the LCD and push and it will change the song.

    If i had the source images this skin might look better than it does right now as i had to cut the buttons out etc.

    But thats the basis of my thoughts
    I like the idea. I have the same problem with driving and wanting to skip songs.

    Hopefully just the initial release will take this long because we are trying our very very best to make sure AIMEE has as few bugs as possible, and that as many features are available as possible! Providing things don't get too hectic, updates/fixes etc should be reasonably quick, but I doubt it'll be guino quick! That man is a machine!!

    We'll try to get a feature-list together, as well as a good FAQ, and possibly a user-manual, however every one of those that is done or worked on takes some time away from coding...!
