wTouch Version (Beta)

Racing with times :)
Now I'm considering this stage as beta, I do not think to put more feature for this time.
Still there is something need to be done, especially for images on browse functions.
  • Client side sorting for Movies, TV Shows, Artists, Albums
  • Fix addon.xml to be compatible with XBMC addons repository
  • Browse Music have suffle option as first item to suffle the songs on the directory (use playlist). Selecting one song still play only the song directly (not use playlist).
  • Add Browse Music Library, now support for browse by artists, albums, and songs directly.
  • Drop default.asp, so XBMC 09xx and before, will not work anymore (it's only touch/gesture remote).
  • Resizing Cover Art/Thumbnail now detect the screen resolution.
From now, I will submit the project to XBMC add-ons repository, and you need at least XBMC Dharma Beta2. So no need manual download from my site.

wTouch Version (Alpha)

As XBMC already on stage beta 2 for new release Dharma, they also implementing on new addons system for web interfaces. In preparation for making package for the repository, I made a little progress.
For this version, I'm using build 33857 to build and test, and device iPhone 3GS

  • Change icon and splash screen to match with the new XBMC splash screen.
  • Change the background of media info.
  • Tap on media info will showing Player Control in XBMC. Previously, the Player Control can be shown with single tap (enter key), but it changed that Player Control shown by key M.
  • Fix css issue for title on media info, that may cap the text.
  • Change sensitivity for swipe left and right, this should make the swipe left then back (ESC) and vice versa (TAB) perform better.
  • Copying json.js and Default*.png images from poc to wtouch directory as the change on webinterface inside xbmc use addons system.
  • Fixing the display of the Cover Art/Thumbail. Now the image is automatically resized based on iphone screen size. (480*320 resolution)
