Today we released improved playlist management on the main Psonar website.
It’s probably still a little rough around the edges, but we figured it was better to get something out there for you to use ASAP. We think it’s a big improvement.
The main changes are:
- the playlists panel has been made smaller, giving the main tracks display area more room
- double-clicking a playlist now displays the contents in the main tracks display area
- deletion of tracks from and reorganisation of tracks within a playlist now happens on the client. When a deletion / move operation is performed, buttons appear at the bottom of the track list to allow you to either save the changes (whereupon they get persisted) or cancel them (the playlist gets reloaded and the changes are undone)
- management of tracks in the player is performed in the same way
- we’ve added a ‘new’ button at the top of the playlists panel for 1-click playlist creation
We hope you like the changes. We think it makes playlist management much less clunky.
Look out for more similar UX improvements in the coming weeks.
We also listened to what you said in the Psonar survey (please do tell us what you think if you haven’t done so already!) about the colour scheme and toned it down somewhat. We’ve also widened the scrollbars, reduced the initial load-time for large collections and added ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons amongst other things.
If you like the new playlist management, colour scheme or Psonar in general, please show your support by clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button in the header to spread the word and help make Psonar simply the best place to keep your music on the internet. Thanks!
