I have created a new application that I would like to get your comments on :)

Here's some info about it:
Spotify Control lets you control the real Spotify UI on your computer.
Now supports BOTH Windows and Linux. If upgrading, PLEASE upgrade the server software as well!
Spotify Controller lets you control the official Spotify user interface. No other app can do this for Linux computers.
PLEASE contact us by mail before submitting low ratings or negative comments.
Requirements:
* The official Spotify client must be installed on your computer. Please make sure that you can start Spotify and play music with it, prior to using SpotifyController.
* Linux or Windows. For Linux you must use the the Linux version of Spotify (not the one running under Wine). We have tested SpotifyController on Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu 10.10. If you get it to work on other versions/platform please inform us so we can update this information.
* To be able to populate app with playlists/songs you must have the official Spotify app installed on your device.
Features:
* Start/stop song.
* Skip to next/previous song.
* Use the official Spotify app to populate your own favorite list of playlists and songs.
* Control the volume (using the volume buttons on the device).
* Configure multiple servers, e.g. if you want to control more than one computer.
* Shortcut in notification bar for easy access. Can be disabled in settings.
* Change color theme
* Show album art (can be disabled)
* Animations (can be disabled)
Server installation:
1. Download SpotifyController server from here: SEE ANDROID MARKET PAGE (link below)
2. Extract the package to any folder.
3. Run the install script and follow the instructions.
To upgrade server:
1. Extract the new software to the same place.
2. Run the install script again.
Known limitations (Windows only):
* Since the official Spotify client in Windows does not start playing playlists automatically, we need to kill Spotify and start it again when playlists are sent to the client. Drawbacks: slower loading of playlists and possibly dead icons in system tray.
Permissions used:
* External Storage - backup history items and server settings
* Wifi State - advice the user to use Wifi
* Internet - access the SpotifyController Server

Good idea, but I've a problem :S

When I try to configure the app (in the phone) always says me "Failed Connecting", I opened the port in the firewall and the router but the same.. I try with external IP and internal but nothing... What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Try and connect from the same computer, by going to http://YOUR_IP:1258/SpotifyControlle...trollerServlet

If that works, try and connect from another computer to the same address.

Running win7 Ultimate 64-bit, and I cannot get the server running...
I run install.bat, which runs through fine, even though it's unable to turn volume down and up.
The Desktop shortcuts are installed, but trying to start the server nothing happens.
Can't connect loacally, through LAN or WAN....

Any ideas ?

EDIT: So I can now connect, but it won't play anything (
The problem wit getting the server to run was missing PATH to java dir
