    I'd love for someone to make a widget for the springboard. A Music Player widget placeable where you like (like weather and clock widgets) which has the basic music controls (play, pause, rewind, fast forward)

    Thanks in advance,

    I also think this would be appreciated by alot of ppl to have.
    In general i think creating widgets for the iphone should be main priority. Would be neat if someone could discover how to add Yahoo widgets (or just similar) to the springboard and making them movable like apps.

    There has allready been added a Dashboard for the Ipod Touchie but i dont think mod rly does the job, a Dashboard still requires "1 click to go" rather then having everything right at your start menu

    Double clicking the home button isn't enough for you?

    If it were a widget like the weather widget (HMTL based) you would not be able to control it because springboard doesn't let you interact with HTML.

    ^I've never seen anything of that sort. I've seen the ones that change with the weather, but that's different cuz YOU don't actually do anything to make it change.

    I agree with nitsua, I've never seen a widget that you can interact with.

    The most reasonable way to make this happen would be to make 3 apps that acted as shortcuts, one to prev, one to next, and a toggle for pause/play and then to place a MusicInfo widget along with it. But I don't think that's very possible or practical either.

    I'm good with those ¬_¬

    Idk if that's possible though...I guess in theory it should be but I have no idea how to even start doing it. And that'd only stick on one page unless it was the dock.

    It might be cool to have to have shake to skip instead of shuffle that you can use without having the controls or music app open.
