This small app (or maybe plugin?) is developed for everyone, who like to have a fast access to music albums stored on the memory card. Instead of launching a player, browsing it's library for an album and playing it, you can play any album directly from the Sliding Panel.
Changes made from version 1.1
-database (SA2 is using MS SQL Compact Server 3.5 to store music files data)
-skins (I've implemented a fully skin support which can customize your titanium panel with SA2. It supports live preview of any skin. You can also create new skins if you like)
-updater (you can check for update at program startup (its optional) and check for testing versions if I create one. SA2 will download an update, unpack and install it automatically. After that SA2 will automatically run the new updated version and show a changelog in few languages - but I will write it only in english and polish, other languages I don't know so...)
-languages (SA2 supports lang packs. You can also translate it by yourself - it's not a problem Current languages are: English, German, Polish, Romanian and Russian)
-addons installer (SA2 have a new nice feature. Files with *.slidaddon extension are SA2 addons. If you have downloaded an addon, just copy it to your device and run it by clicking on it. Addon should be installed automatically.)
-playlist plugins (I've added asx and m3u plugins for creating playlists but in a ner future maybe a new plugin will be included. For now, it cannot be developed by someone else.)
-album path (finally you can change the path to your music files. By default it's set to Storage Card\Music but you can change it to another path.)
-bypass titanium limit to 30 pages per panel (I don't know why titanium allows only to display 30 pages... but I've made a simple trich to avoid that. If you slide to the last album you'll see under Right SK a 'Next' option. It will change pages to next 30 albums and so on. The first page from over 30 albums will have a 'Previous' option to go back. This technique supports over 4000 albums so don't worry )
-support for additional players (by modifying the Players.ini file you can add additional players to SA2. But there's one important thing - the new player must support an avalible playlist format. So if SA2 has asx and m3u your player should support it)
-progress stripe (you can see progress of creating database, creating playlists files or applying new skin)
Changes made from version 1.0:
-Support for WM6.5 (only Titanium)
-album limit to 30 albums
Your music files should be stored like this:
If you had sorted your folders like that, you can run my app.
For now, SlidingAlbums supports Windows Media Player, Pocket Player, Core Player and TCPMP.
