  1. In the library view there is the top rated option (1), or you can sort the All songs view by rating (2) #1: Library -> 3-dot-menu -> List options -> Check Top rated #2: Library -> All Songs -> 3-dot-menu -> List options -> Select by rating in the sort section Edit: I've reread your request and what you need is more definitive, nonetheless those solutions are still valid for a non-destructive usage
  2. (I edited my previous post just right before you posted your one) Yes, but again, what's the difference? The last time an album has been played is the last time a track of that album has been played, it isn't about if you listened to the whole thing. You can evaluate the situation basing on an already implemented one: when a track is played it is automatically added to the recently played library option (therefore its LTP value has to be updated in some way, or something on that line), but its value is updated even if you listen to the track for half a second, so it's never a matter of completeness, to recreate that sort of behavior for album too isn't a logical consequence? Of course to implement when an album is completely listened needs extra logic and data gathering, but I'm not referring to that situation, if the LTP value for each track is already there isn't it a matter of create a sorting method for the albums list view by just using the newest LTP track value for each album? I don't want to get too technical (because by the way I don't know the specific implementation) but I think that @maxmp can understand on a practical point of view what I'm referring to
  3. I noticed that in the list options for any "songs" grouping (genre, artist, but most importantly albums) there is the "by time last played" option, so isn't the information about the last time played for each track already there? To add a little bit of background on this and why this can make sense to be implemented: most of the time I listen to four or five albums during a fixed amount of time (let's say two weeks), and then I swap them with five more new albums, and I listen to those for the next two weeks, and so on and so on, and if you have a huge library to find those albums might not be that easy. I think that this way of listening to albums isn't that rare, and to have a albums list sorting by last time played can come in handy
  4. I've never specified that the album has to be fully listened in order to be listed, that would surely need more logic to be implemented than the situation that I described above; I'm asking for it mainly because it's a feature that I've already seen in other players and it seems pretty feasible to be implemented
  5. Theoretically speaking I agree on your line of thought, but since I haven't checked the codebase available on Github I don't know how the library is practically handled. Since an album is a collection of songs, and each song has a last time played value, the last time played value of an album isn't just the last time played of its last played song? (Sorry for the word blob) As I said above, isn't it just a matter of grouping? In this case I was specifically talking about the case where the user select the "Artist" entry from the 3-dot menu in the player view, but I didn't realize that the Artist albums view is just one left-swipe away from the Full songs list one, completely my fault on that. (I'll strikethrough the related paragraph in OP)
  6. Yes, "By last time played" is the default sorting method for the "Recently played" category, but as I said in OP that category displays only tracks, what I asked for is something like that but with albums instead. I've checked everywhere and as far as I seen something like that isn't acheivable with the current means
  7. While it might be true for the artist view (even though I was talking more in terms of grouping, and not sorting), it isn't for the "Recently played" category, what I was talking about was to have a view with just the albums, and not the tracks (like the "Albums" library category), sorted by the lasted played albums. Practically speaking, it's a matter of adding a sort method to the albums library category, and since there is already an albums sorting method called "By date added to library", to have "By date played" or something in that line
  8. Hi Folks, I'm loving the app but there is just one feature that I'd love to see added: to sort albums by the last played ones. I know that there is a library category for "Recently played", but it displays just tracks (without the possibility to group them by album), and I know that it might makes sense for most of the users, but since I'm used to listen to full albums instead of single tracks that category is just too bloated to be usable for me. [See below] (and on a similiar topic, I see that the app in certain aspects is very track-centric, like when from the player view "Artist" is selected from the menu, the next view is "All artist Songs", and not the "Albums" one, and another time, I know that it might make sense for most of the users, but can we have the possibility to select which view to open?) Thank you for all your work, I'm not joking when I say that yours is probably the best android app that I've ever used.
