Working on a Dream

or a new UI for the Playback screen. Ok - I may be overusing ListViews... but they're fancy!

The screenshot below contains the playback controls, volume controls and the new PlayQueue.
Interaction with the application has fundamentally changed, as you'll notice when I publish the new version. It's now possible to Enqueue and Dequeue tracks in the PlayQueue.
Default 'click action' in the Playlist Track View is to Enqueue track.
If you long-click a track or a playlist in the Playlist View a context menu popups, with options to Enqueue the song(s).
Default 'click action' in the Search Result is to Enqueue  track.

New version of Roidify + Servify. Let’s call it v0.1!

Finally implemented fancier listviews. It's high time to update the screenshots so here goes.

As you can see, they  look alot slicker than the earlier lists. But there's still room for plenty of GUI improvements...

As usual you can get it here!

WifiLock’s not honored…

Been having issues with the WifiLock not being honored - causes roidify to lose connection to servify when the phone goes to sleep-mode...
It seems this may be a bug in android as described here: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=2059

Current workaround I'm deploying is using a WakeLock (as described in the above bug-report), however this does not alleviate the issue on it's own (or at all?). So I've further created a TimerTask that ping's the server every 5 seconds... Combined (or on its own?) is seems to do the trick.

It'd be great to see if it works on its own without the WakeLock but I'm sick of debugging the issue right now... If this works I'm happy.

This does waste more battery than ideal so let's hope that the WifiLock is fixed with later versions of Android, maybe it's fixed in >1.6.
