Re: Fuze+ Feature feedback Poll

[ Edited ]

I agree with your suggestions, and I don't know about anyone else, but when I record voice and FM radio, the playback often misses/skips a second, every few seconds. it is very frustrating, especially because sometimes I record a beat for later playing on my drum set, and if a miss a sound, it can make the whole purpose useless.

It's gone now. That was almost 2 months ago.

Re: Fuze+ Feature feedback Poll

The last "widget" was about the lock feature.

 

There was a poll regarding how users would like a lock function implemented.

 

Personally, I prefer to work outside the box.  The touch pad has been a lightning rod for issues with the new device.  I would like to use its quirkiness as its strongest attribute.  This can all be done with software.

 

When locked, the touchpad can be remapped, not just "disabled".  The beauty of a touch pad is that you no longer need to fine a specific spot on the pad to operate it, with the exception of controlling the unlock.  My preference is to have alternate functions when locked, like a multiple-tap play/pause anywhere on the pad (this requires a deliberate rate of tap, so it doesn't do things you don't want), as well as a novel "sweep to skip" function, that would be sublime.

 

The development team is trying different possibilities, rest assured.

To neutron_bob, I think that a locking feature like the iPod Touch would work a lot better than your solution.

 

A tap on the top power button locks the player and the screen turns off, then another tap turns the screen back on, and the usual swipe up the middle unlocks the player.

 

Opinions?

Why not just press it again?

 

Why is sliding up necessary? You're just adding a useless gimmicky requirement to unlock the device.

Re: Fuze+ Feature feedback Poll

Personally, I think there should be separate "locked" and "pocket" modes.

 

Locked mode is activate by a tap on the power button.

 

Pocket mode is activated by the current hold play button method.  Pocket mode allows a double tap to pause/play and a slide (continuous movement in any direction) skips to next track.

 

Volume controls could be available in either mode.

 

A tap on the power button would release either mode.

 

 

Two cents, change anyone?

Personally, I have absolutely no issues with the lock feature as it now stands...but with that said, the way the iPod Touch locks and unlocks is probably a touch (pun intended!) better.
