How do I get it to read anything off of my SD card? I can't get any of my music. It looks a lot like mediaPlayer from Dollars5. However, they said they couldn't access the volume keys on the side but yours apparently does use them.

Hmm, use Add File(s) or Add Folder from menu.

I do, but it doesn't go to the media card. It goes to a folder "user/" and then it looks like it only goes to device memory. I can get to my ringtones that are on the device memory, but that's it.

Ok, I have the card showing (helps to not have it plugged into the USB cable) but when I get to my music folders your app shows no files in my folders. The files show in the other media player, though.

Same here... but when I go to add file then it shows all my songs... but does that mean I have to add each song first before I can play it?

Works great for a beta. Needs netter integration with phone (music goes soft, but not quiet). When you add music, the app doesn't look through folders -- in other words, I couldn't simply select the music folder, I had to select each folder that directly contained media files.

Can't wait for streaming support. Any plans for bluetooth (even if mono)?

Unless I am incorrect it worked fine with my bluetooth headset. Have you tried yours? Also are you saying that you were able to have it select all songs in 1 folder than each song individually?

hmmm... I need to give this one a try...

Once it is out of beta, will you give us a discount for this software?

xxxdev - 2 additional suggestions: (1) add ability to sort files by title, artist, album, etc.; (2) once a song is playing, there's no way to select a different song, except for pressing forward or back. So if I have 100 songs in the library and I'm listening to song 3 and want to go to song 97, I have to press forward 93 (or I can exit the application and restart it -- which is what I've been doing).
