This looks really bad. Basically the navigation based on tags is almost unusable, no matter how good the files were tagged:
- browsing by "Artist" will mess up the album structure, and
- browsing via "Album" category requires you to remember by heart all albums names from each artist.
And if I will re-organize my folders to have ARTIST --> ALBUMS in them, and switch to the "Manual navigation"... I'll lose gapeless functionality (based on the discussion from last week).
I'm really looking forward for this player (actually I already have it on pre-order since 2 weeks in Europe), but this seems quite a limit on navigation functionality (at least compared to a Rockbox UI).
Yes, my rockboxed clip zip, when I select "artists" and select an artist, it then shows an "all tracks" option followed by a list of the artist's albums. That's good. And if you select "all tracks", then all of the tracks (from all of the albums for that artist) are listed alphabetically by track name. That's good.
Yes, this is how it should be. Here is an example of Rockbox on a larger screen than a ClipZip....from the list of artists I selected Wilco, and that brings you this screen...
