Better mouse + kb support


Recommended Posts

I've noticed this while using Poweramp in WSA, though these requests would apply to tablets and Chromebooks as well.

- When using the arrow keys to navigate, if you highlight the album art, left and right will switch the song, but only visually.  Pressing play will play the song that was on the screen when you navigated another way.

- Wake the UI (visualizer on) when the cursor moves, rather than waiting for a click (or "tap").  

- (potential option?) Single click for select, double click for play in the list.  It's definitely possible to differentiate between clicks and taps - Solid Explorer already does it.

- Open the details menu when clicking on the title, go to the list when clicking on the art. (since a mouse cursor is far more accurate than a finger)

- Add tooltips for buttons in the UI.

Obviously, these can be added at your discretion, but I think better mouse and keyboard support would be beneficial regardless of your preferences of how exactly to do it.

That one does seem to be a bug. Even if you are currently listening to a song on your phone and you use the left/right arrow keys in the 'Your Phone' interface on a Windows PC, the cover art, title and artist/album wording on the Player screen all change as expected, but the music playing does not. Pausing and pressing Play again still plays the wrong song compared to the artwork & song title info.
