Some lovely feature wishes out there. I hope they all come true. Since am also, one of you who use phone as a media player especially 'music player', what's life without music anyway.
I have question as a feature request. Since am coming from Cyanogen Mod 10 (Jelly Bean) Android, the only and the most-most important feature that has got me glued to Cyanogen Mod
is, "skip track via volume buttons", when the phone screen is off. Am sure you must be aware this feature and also it's usability, e.g. when you are jogging or working out, suddenly a love ballad
pops up. am sure no guy can do heavy weights on ..(you name it) .
Please let me know if there is feature, almost like this or exactly like this in BB10 (QNX) . Thanks and Regards.

I have never been a fan of iTunes in the past but this recent iTunes 11 has really caught my eye, esp with regards to how I want this app to function. How apple implemented these functions of having a Now Playing List and then adding and removing music from it on the fly is really worth look. (don't know if these things were present in previous versions of iTunes, because I never really cared much for it).
Following is a little run down of how things work.
This shows the current playing list, it continues from from wherever the current song was played, in this case the song playing is the first of an album and so the Up Next list shows the next songs in the same album.
To add a song to that list, simply browse to the song you want to add, and select from either Play Next, or Add to Up Next.
Once a Song has been Added to the Up Next, it shows up in the list as a separate entity without effecting the original Up Next List.
This is how the Up Next List looks after adding a few different songs to it. Notice the level of functionality they have managed to add upon selecting one of these songs. There is an option to remove the song from the list, make it Play Next, or if you want to add more songs from the same artist or album you can jump to that directly from here. There are also separate options to clear the original list, or clear the recently added list, it is remarkable how they did all this without cluttering up the UI.
Ofcourse in iTunes this Up Next List is mostly hidden and shows up when a button is pressed, but the Idea for this App revolves around having this Up Next List as always on the screen, and the music selecting and browsing screens come up only when the user needs to make any changes to the list.
Here is a little mash-up of iTunes cut, pasted, cropped and stretched to look like the app that hopefully one day will see the light of day.

Played with iTunes 11 a little more.
Found out there is actually a way to make the "Up Next" list the primary view. Then I found that Album Art can show up in a separate window complete with audio controls, rearrange them a bit and saw what looks like a passable view for Landscape orientation in a Phone.
It is surprising how similar this is to my original landscape view idea for the app
Lemme know what you think
I have never used iTunes and don't plan on using it any time soon, but the idea you got from it seems really good. It cuts down on the resizing of the components for portrait and leaves the big image for landscape.
