Re: Fuze+ Feedback and Feature Request Thread

[ Edited ]

Not sure if this is there on the Sansa Fuze+, but since I havent seen it, I think there should be a Recently Added playlist. I used that feature alot on my original Sansa Fuze.

Yes, I second this.  The main menu should definitely loop instead of having to go back and forth.

For scrolling down lists, instead of having to flick over and over, then overshoot and have to inch your way towards the song, the up and down were constant as long as you held your finger there and the speed at which it scrolls would vary depending on how far your finger is from the center

My understanding is that the flicking system touch interaction isn't that responsive because otherwise the fuze would be doing all sorts of crazy things if you held it in your pocket, so the touch system is abit delayed intially, so stopping where you want is a pain in the ass



Locking the fuze should just be a tap of the power button, instead of holding the play button. Or it automatically locks once your backlight turns off, and then make the unlock process a bit quicker. The animation is very slow for the lock. Could have it like the (i think zune?) where you just slide up and a cover-ish thing moves with you, and once its pushed off the screen the device is unlocked.


Also, the scroll selection white bar should be smooth, instead of having to flick from song name to song name, just have it settle down on a song name and have it smoothly interact with song names when you scroll, so it looks smoother. It looks especially choppy when the scrolliing slows down


Finally, album art always has annoying bars if your album art sizing isn't perfect. So why not just have it be transparent and adjust to fit any picture size? I can't imagine this being very hard to implement from my basic coding knowledge for skinning gaming devices.

I believe I read somewhere that this will be added in a future firmware update. The orginal Fuze when it first came out did not have wrap-around scrolling either (at least not in the 'lists'). It was a real pain to scroll through a long Artist list and not be able to continue on to A from Z :smileyhappy:

Good to hear...Let's hope that it happens.  Not that I'm in the least unhappy with the fuze+ as it is now, but a looping scrolling design would make the product even better...:smileyhappy:

Re: Fuze+ Feedback and Feature Request Thread

I agree the music lists take too long to load.......

 

I only have 228 and it takes a minute to load each list.

Re: Fuze+ Feedback and Feature Request Thread

I use my Fuze + primarily to listen to Talk Radio Podcasts. These podcasts are from one to two hours in length.

The Fuze + easily unlocks itself and resets the Podcast I was listening to at the beginning. I would like the

system to have a resume feature as I have seen on the videos which will make it start where it left off. In fact, the resume

feature should apply to music and any other file being played.

Re: Fuze+ Feedback and Feature Request Thread

resume was improved with the latest firmware. Unfortunately i do not think it would help if the files is restarted.

 

i would like to see the lock feature moved to tapping the power button then swiping the touch pad. i think this would prevent accidental unlocking.

Echoing many others:

 

1. Change the lock feature.  I favor the idea to use the power button for lock/unlock, but using the play/pause button for both lock/unlock would be better than swiping to unlock.  It would also be nice to have the option to auto-lock when the screen goes dark.

 

2. Better scrolling.  When swiping through a list, a center tap should immediately stop the scrolling without selecting anything.  Would love to see some sort of alphabet selection in scrolling, like slowly dragging down would go take you through the alphabet so you can go directly to a specific letter.  The letters already pop up as I scroll, but if I'm swiping, I haven't found a way to stop quickly when I see the letter I want.

 

3. Loop menus around.

 

4. Recently Added Playlist.  I loved that feature on previous players I've owned.

 

Pardon a stupid question:  I've seen others mention SDXC cards and that they would have liked a full size SD slot to accomodate these extremely high capacity cards; I googled microSDXC, and what I found seemed to be rumors from 2009.  Does anyone know if/when we could expect to see microSDXC cards on the market?  If such a thing will be available in the next year or so, is it likely that the Fuze+ will be updated to be compatible?

 

Just got it yesterday, so I'm still playing around with it, but these are the things I noticed immediately.  I'm currently testing out the battery life, because immediately upon unplugging from my computer, the charge indicator dropped slightly from full.  I'm going into hour 26 of continuous play, so I guess it must not be anything to worry about!
