I have an 8GB Fuze and with an 8GB SD card stuffed to the gills with my music.
After navigating my song list for a week, my right thumb has never looked better and is thinking of releasing a Workout Video with Jane Fonda. However the rest of my body would really appreciate if you guys added A-Z Z-A rollover in your music lists for the next firmware update.
The only way I can search alphabetically for a song is via the Songs catagory, which now sits at roughly 3500+ entries. Thats quite a workout. And my thumb can fit into clothes he hasn’t fit into since High School.
The simple act of allowing me to go from Z to A and vice versa would cut my thumbwheel workout in half. It would also be great if you either gave me the option to either display by track number or alphabetically. I try to use Genre and Artist to narrow down my choices, but I still get the tracks listed in track order.
I understand listing in Track Order from Album View, and actually prefer that, but because the only Alphabetical listing is directly from the Song category, it means a lot of scrolling if I am looking for a particular song.
A final wish would be accelerated scroll wheel like my E200 series had when running Rockbox.
Apple had the same issues to deal with as they made the transition from “low capacity” to “high capacity” players. Heck, they still sell 2GB Shuffles with no visual navigation tools at all (I don’t get it…) So you guys are definitely not alone.
All these things would greatly reduce thumb fatique when searching my Fuze for a particular song.
I know it’s a lot to ask, but if you could just remove the barrier between A and Z by the next release, it would mean a LOT. Just loop ALL your lists like you loop the Main GUI page.
All the other requests could wait.
Whatever you do, don’t tell the thumb. It would destroy his self esteem. I caught him flirting with my pinky the other day…
