    Okay, so we all know Apple has allowed us to access our music by double clicking the Home button when it's asleep, right? I love how you can play the previous track and the next track, not to mention pause and increase/decrease volume. One thing that I would love to see, is how much time is left on the song. Anyone think this would be possible? Not bringing up the music interface to the lockscreen, but just to show how much time is left on a certain song.

    EXAMPLE

    iPod/AT&T (Lock) Battery Life
    TIME IT IS RIGHT NOW
    DATE/SONG PLAYING
    PREV << PLAY |> PAUSE >> NEXT
    VOLUME CONTROL


    That is how the lockscreen usually looks. What I'd like to see it is, is:

    iPod/AT&T (Lock) Battery Life
    TIME IT IS RIGHT NOW
    (SEC/MIN AT)DATE/SONG PLAYING (SEC/MIN LEFT)
    PREV << PLAY |> PAUSE >> NEXT
    VOLUME CONTROL

    Anyone think that this would be a good idea?

    Why would you need to see how much time is left?

    That's if you'd like to see my horrible Paint impression.

    Just a thought. That way if you like a certain part of a song, but you don't want to be bothered with going straight to the Music app and scrubbing to it, you could fast forward to that time. Would be pretty handy for me.

    id like a scrubber bar that you double click and then tap with your finger to make it appear and then tap again to make it disappear.

    I was thinking of that too, but it would bring too much of the Music app to the lockscreen.

    Yeah, kinda. Only without the scrubber bar, or add in an option to have it on there.
