Well, I have been using this for several days now and think I can give a pretty good review of this for ya Scilor.

First off, it still works great. I like the continuous play based off of play list, just load up a bunch of songs and let it go to town. Streaming seems to be more consistent even in sketchy signal areas, I guess the buffer might be a little more robust in this version possibly? I did have a few failed to start song errors but it seems to be only happening on one particular artist though (hot chip) didn't really happen on anyone else really. The only other thing I would say is I have 2 suggestions for you.

1. Maybe have the first song you choose if you are choosing a song and there is not a playlist yet created start playing when you select it. Maybe you could do it with an "if/then" statement in the code.
2. Maybe use something other than a box to signify that the song was sent to the playlist, first time I used the app, i was kinda expecting to see or make a check mark happen inside the box, LOL.

But all in all, great upgrade from v2, and your definitely heading in a good direction with your app Scilor. I look forward to v4 :)

I want to put a "+"-Symbol beside the songs to add it, it will get red if you have selected the song. I did it this way due to lack of time to design one. If tap the song it plays, if you tap the plus it gets added :D.

Thank you for your review.
PS: Be Happy to have an update checker :P

Yeah, that sounds a little better of a system of checking and playing from search field to playlist field. And sure, i'll test whatever you send my way. Just send me whatever you need tested to the email address I registered here if you want to. And if you need some tips or pointers on GUI effects and how to's let me know :) as I always enjoy a good front end GUI on winmo apps. I also meant to add before, I would still like to be able to pull my grooveshark online playlists into the groovemobile app. And also where are the app saved playlists saving? Main windows directory? I looked there but couldn't find the playlist name that i named it. I know your app works better in the main windows directory as i tried setting it's own directory when I made that cab for you a couple weeks back and it would only work right in the main windows directory. I'm assuming because of needed dependencies in the windows directory?

If I have something to test, you will hear from me.

And please continue criticising my GUI, it gives me some inspirations I need :).

Don't mind about the grooveshark(tm) playlists they will come one day.

And about the Windows Directory: You are completely wrong... I hate any app that stores its settings etc not in its on dir, just because I like hard reseting etc and hate loosing my settings. So never search something outside my apps directory.
The Playlists are in the playlists or similar directory of the application.

Would you mind structure your message a little bit next time :D. Thats horrible reading such a big block as a whole
