S2P is a great application for those that cannot stand looking at what Microsoft calls a music player, with some great features and looks to go with it. Well after a long period without an update, I asked the developer what gives, and the response was very quick. The developer said he has been working hard on the next versions, but the users should not expect to see any â€œAlbum viewâ€ support. This comes after Apple was granted patent rights over cover flow, and so adding that to his player would be a great legal risk. Neither the less the next version should be a whole lot better, with features that work great on everything, and maybe something cool for the HD2.
I told the developer that before his next release I would write an article asking the readers what they would want in a great music player, and so here it is.
Below please comment and tell us what you think a great player should have. If you are currently using S2P then tell us what you think should be added, removed, and or improved. He will read the article and see what he can do.
My personal request was for album view on my HD2, but sadly that cannot be done. I also would like some awesome multi touch gestures, and better album artwork detection, and lastly some new S2U2 integration.
