Title: WPS request for gigabeat
Post by: thyme on April 01, 2007, 10:24:20 AM
Hi... I was going through the archived threads and I found this thread that had pictures of what I believe was a WPS for the gigabeat and I really liked it but couldn't find it in the WPS gallery for download..

Here are some pictures of it:

This WPS never existed and was simply a mockup.

yea I thought it looked pretty good too, so I posted it here to see if anyone with more wps and photoshop knowledge than me and had some free time would create this wps mockup

Is anyone else seeing the rest of the images other than the first?

No. The links are weird. He made them wrong...let me see...

(I only put up the url's to the pictures that were different, not just turned 90 degrees left)

EDIT: Ya, those links work...good url guessing me! *self cheer*

But thyme, I'm agreeing with Midgey34, this is simply a mockup and has never existed. This would require a FULL re-write of basically everything. It'd be nice as hell if someone made and ported it to the ipod 5g, but so far, no; It's a concept design (unfortunately).

Thanks DanManners.

That's actually pretty sweet!  I don't think this would be easily implemented though since there's a complete change to the menu system.  Kind of looks a little iPod-ish.  But clean and nice none the less.

I like the idea of having the playing track name/info in the status bar of the menus.

Well the WPS's should be no problem if you have the slider-progressbar patch. If somebody makes the WPS I'll add that patch to my build.
