    I know this has (sort of, with the clickwheel) been discussed before, but... I think this needs a completely different thread.

    I love my touch. But sometimes I miss the interface of my iPod Video.

    It would be nice to create a second music app which emulates the iPod Classic's firmware.

    similar to this:

    if TapTap can access the library, I think an app like this can too.

    it would be useful when looking up through songs, espcially in playlists cuz it doesnt have the alphabetical sorting and i hate scrolling with my finger, cuz the text gets blurred up when moving too fast

    Yeah, there were like 7 pages in the old thread and one fake suggestion, so I don't think there's going to be anything.

    Umm.. You don't have to be so rude about it man. I understand you might be pissed, but a lot of people here aren't devs and have no interest in the time and effort it takes to become one.

    The one thing I like about the classic ipod interface is the fact that I can easily pause, fast forward, change volume, etc. without removing my ipod from my pocket. I love the touch interface as well, but nothing compares to the primitive simplicity of the legendary click wheel. (with physical buttons, please! no emulator will satisfy me)
