How to flip Albums with sliding the finger?

Hi,

I am using a Touch Pro and trying to figure out the music tab.

When I swipe my finger top to bottom, it flips the song in an album view. What I would really like is for it to flip whole albums.

Any ideas how this can be done?

The albums with only fick if the song is related to the album.... The only way I see what you want happening, it to assign each song to a specific album cover. By doing this, it will let you flick through each song and show you the album art. I would think iTunes or WMP would let you do that.

Big Jew,

The songs are all organized in albums. Kind of like cover flow in ipod.

The main screen should scroll albums when using finger slide. What it is doing right now is flicking one song at a time, the album cover remains the same, but the song title changes under it. When it is done flipping all the songs, it them moves to the next album and so on.

Ideally, I would like for it to flip through to the next album once I slide my finger. Going through each song makes it very redundant and useless.

Re: How to flip Albums with sliding the finger?

I was wondering the exact same thing. I don't want to flip through each song - I want to flip through my albums, then select the album and get a list of songs to select/play.

Does the Touch/iPhone work like this ?

Re: How to flip Albums with sliding the finger?

On the whole the entire music tab seems like a good idea badly implemented. All other media players for Windows Mobile I have tried simply lack the visual beauty of the TF3D music player, but it itself lacks lots of things which make it feel amateurish. If HTC had released the source, this wouldn't be a problem anymore what with XDA-Developers being what it is, but sadly to my knowledge they didn't. Hopefully someone either clones it and releases the source or HTC improves it dramatically.

Andy,

I cant but imagine thinking this must be just a setting in the player somewhere. Gestures connected to songs instead of albums.

I would click the Library soft key then change it from All songs, or Artist, to ALBUMS!! that should werk! If you want it to change albums, you have to set it to albums..... WORKED FOR ME!

Big Jew.

Good find. However, I was listening to music when you posted and I cant seem to see all albums now. It doesnt want to come out of the "now playing" list. Any idea how I can reset the list to show albums? short of rebooting.

No, didn't work for me...I wonder if its related to how your music/folder structure is organized ?
