    Ahh, good call MGD! I didn't even think of using a wildcard jpg. Ok, this will make things a lot easier. Thanks!

    You don't know of any apps that will automatically go in and change all my song file names to insert a number in front, do you? I have to go through that process too it seems... my songs have track #'s in the ID3 tags, but not in the filename. So far my experience with RR is that it wants it in the filename.

    This is all IMO; don't mean to criticize.

    There is to much going on in the track list, i would eliminate track art.
    I would use the top bar to display information about the track, album, artist and so forth then remove that information from the track list itself and leave only the track name in the list.
    The ratings indicators look like bugs at first glance - i would use the standard stars; also have it display only for the song that's playing.

    i appreciate the feedback... but in all honesty i want for the playlist to be as informative as possible. If i were to remove the track art and ratings lists completely there'd be no real innovation present in that screen. As far as i know i'm the only person to this point to add these things to rr and i take pride in that. You will be happy to know that the final version will only have the ratings stars if you have the ratings neccesary ratings indicators present in the .skin file.

    Perfect... I was going to ask you for this and you already will deliver! I don't use ratings at all, so this is an awesome addition.

    I have another question Sonic:

    When I'm in Coverflow and I select a song or an album and it starts playing, what's the quickest way to get back to the Playlist screen? So far, the only way I can get back is by pressing Menu twice, and then pressing Audio again. Is there a way to jump directly back to the Playlist screen from the Coverflow screen? Perhaps even just a simple "Back" button?

    As far as I can see, there is no way to go directly back to the playlist menu from coverflow.

    as depressing as this is to me i've made it so that both ratings stars and track art are optional.



    I'll be releasing another beta this afternoon that fixes this and a few other things including:

    -Automatic Track Art sync. Now when you change the playlist the track art changes as it should
    -Location notification as mentioned above (no alarm clock yet though)
    -Coverflow skin now takes you back to audio as the click function. Hold function takes you back to the main menu.

    Cool, can't wait to try it. Don't worry Sonic, I'll still be using track art. No ratings though, just because I've never used ratings. Thanks!
