New feature: Indicate selected playback options on the "Options" button

In the next version of SmartPlaylist you will see what special playback options you have set directly on the "Options" button:

In this example the Shuffle mode and the Tempo (formerly "Speed") are set to the default / standard value, so nothing is indicated on the "Options" button (no "S" or "T").
As the repeat mode is set on "Repeat: list", "R" indicates a non-standard setting. "P" indicates that the "Pause after each song" is active.

Where there is not enough space to show these letters, a dice will just indicate how many options are not set to the standard value:

New feature: Pause after each song (play stop queue)

In the next version of SmartPlaylist you will find the new playback option "Pause after each song".


When this option is set, SmartPlaylist will stop (pause) playback once a song has finished playing and the next song will be ready for playback -- just press on it to play ("force touch" ;o).
You have to set this option each time you start SmartPlaylist. If it is set, you will see "P" next to "Options".

Note:

  • This feature only works when SmartPlaylist is running in the foreground. It will not work if SmartPlaylist is in the background or if the device is turned off (locked).
  • To prevent screen-lock just in SmartPlaylist, you can turn off "Auto-Lock" in Menu > Settings > General options:
