    wha if when you double tap the home button, instead of the music hud showing, your screen dimmed a bit (or maybe a translucent black overlay) and you could then use it like pockettouch? then you double tap the home button again to close it.

    that would be so useful!

    way better than the crap hud thing.

    also, it should be able to start music from it - in the current hud, when you hit play if nothing was playing it chooses a random song and starts to play.

    it's an app that makes changing songs easier than having to look

    how is that not `able to start music from it`? you want it to read your mind?
    you press the Music button to go to your song list...

    as for an overlay, a developer could write a music player from scratch and include all the functions to have a popup hud like you mention. it could look like anything. The only reason a popup works at all is because the music player app is still runnning in the background, even when you exit to springboard.

    nobody has mentioned rewrite an entire player anytime soon (except truelife)

    what I mean is, if you restart your ipod ro completely close the music app, hitting the play button on the popup hud actually starts a song. in pockettouch, all you can do is start a song if there was already one selected previously - like if you played a song then paused it, you could play it again from pockettouch. but you cant use the play feature upon strartup.
