Title: screensaver
Post by: natanelho on October 19, 2014, 02:04:01 AM
i want that there will be an option to make screensaver - an option in the settings that after some time - lets say, 15 min - one of the demo plugins will run, until U press any button, or until the the screen powers off.
i know that it will drain alot of battery but its a cool option :-)

You kinda hit the nail on the head as to why no one has implemented this already.

It is somewhat of a silly idea.

Most people will find themselves looking at their DAP for a few seconds at a time to adjust playback or volume, and then squirrel it away in a pocket again. Making such a feature largely useless except for niche cases.

You are free to implement this yourself, however.

If you do know how, I don't see the problem.

man i dont know how to do it
and i want it to be in the official release
ppl what is the point of the demo plugins if they arent screensavers?
if they will be screensavers the clipzip will be win-xp-like and its pretty cool.
