Okay,ZAISS has sent me a email with a very good idea.

I try to explain it.

Lets say your actually playlist is "all songs".
In nowplaying the cover image is lets say ARTIST "linkin park" and ALBUM "meteora".

Now a click on the cover image should create a filter.
Then DS will playback all songs of the ALBUM "meteora".

When you click on the cover image again then this filter is off and the playlist all songs continues.

Know how i mean?

Basically a click on the cover image should create a temporary playlist of the playing ALBUM.

Not a bad idea i mean :)

Not a bad idea, but wouldn't it be confusing to do this clicking on cover? this is currently to open the active media app, or the user chosen app.

Maybe there should be a button for this?


I have though of intruducing the side menu concept to Driveshell. Where you have a hidden menu to pop out when needed, something like this:

This way, you could have a lot more functionality in a cleaner layout.

Thoughts?

I think so too.. not for ALL buttons obviously, but for extended functionality, then i think it could be very useful. I will try to play with this first in the upcomming Tidal plugin to work on it from scratch, then if it seems to work we can try to intruduce it to an existing app.

What about add "library app" into the side menu?
Then i Need no button for it in SIMPLE Music app.





BTW this very simple Music app is only to have a overview for the Songs of your actually playing Playlist.
It is for People who prefer nowplaying over a Music app.
So it is more like a addon for nowplaying you know.

Thank you Zaiss :)

As said a side bar is pretty cool and it is the way to go :)

We Keep the clean design BUT get much more functions by using a side bar;)
