I am a SanDisk Clip fan and have recently bought a SanDisk Clip Sport Plus. It's my third SanDisk Clip. I like it ... but...
With my previous players I have installed Rockbox. This allowed me to really customise my player. However, it was only after I purchased my Clip Sport Plus that I discovered that I cannot install Rockbox on it. It also looks unlikely that there will be a version of Rockbox for Clip Sport Plus due to hardware constraints.
This means I am stuck with the native Clip Sport Plus interface which offers very little by way of customisation. But I know that SanDisk are constantly evolving the firmware so I thought it might be helpful to list here some of the features I would like to see in future versions of the Clip Sport interface. For background, I mostly use my Clip Sport Plus for listening to podcasts. I use MediaMonkey as my podcast manager: So here it is, in no particular order, my
Great Big SanDisk Clip Sport Plus Wish List:
That's it for now. I'll add more feature ideas if I come up with more. Would anyone else like to add some features they'd like to see in future versions of the SanDisk firmware or hardware?

One more item for the wish list:
12. Option to control the order in which tracks are listed. My podcasts synchronise with the oldest episode first. I'd rather it the other way around so that the latest episode is displayed first.

#14 For audiobooks, have the option for the right side time, which currently lists the total audiobook length, count down the remaining time, while the left side time continues to count up.

Another one for the list...
#15 Back button operation when navigating podcast hierarchy: When I'm listening to a podcast and want to return to my list of podcasts, clicking the back button once brings me to the list of episodes for that podcast. Clicking the back button again should bring me back to the list of podcasts (i.e. to the folders for each podcast e.g. 99% Invisible, Radiolab, Science Friday). Instead clicking the back button brings you back to the Books menu item which required that I click twice to return to the list of podcast folders. Very annoying!

when the player is in play mode the back button will go to the previous screen in your case the list of episodes. Now the player is in a list view. if you want to go to the previous screen from here use the << button. it will go back to the previous screen which should be the list of podcasts. If you use the back button from a list view it will go back to the main menu. It is a bit unintuitive but the clip sport, jam, and sport plus all work this way.

This suggestion is a little out there but stick with me. I would like to see the Sport Clip Plus support incorporate the rebble.io OS or the FreeRTOS. It would be able to load apps through a phone like the old pebble watch. It would communicate with your phone over blue tooth and apps might use the phones extended capabilities. Sandisk could have it's own app store or leverage one from rebble.io. It would extend the device much further than an mp3 player. I don't know the processor and ram in the SCP. Perhaps it is unable to meet the challenge.
