Legacy Apps Update

I released an update for both the Legacy Music Player [Prototype] and the Legacy Weather app. The weather app update was minor (only increasing the size of the start/stop buttons). The music player app had a HUGE update. I was FINALLY able to get the songs section to list all the songs found on the SDCard. Granted, the songs aren't in alphabetical order, yet. I'm still working on that :P Oh, and the artists section lists all the artists (they are repeated for some reason, haven't figured that one out yet). Jumping back to the list of songs from the can play a song by tapping on it, but there are a few bugs. The first one that I noticed is that when ever you change orientation, the song stops (not sure exactly why yet). The second one I noticed is that once a song ends, you either have to change orientation (to reset the list) or back out (by hitting the provided "home" button) and enter in again to play another song. If there are any other bugs, please let me know either by email, or by commenting below. Thanks for all the downloads so far :)

On a side note, how do you guys feel about ads? Would you rather have ads in a free version then a paid version without them? Or strictly ads and keep all apps free? Or have no ads and paid versions only for donations (and possibly "limited edition" content). Let me know what you think.

Thanks for visiting,

Legacy Weather -Release-

I just released my second Legacy App. I call them "Legacy Apps" because they feature my "Legacy UI" which brings a honeycomb-ish look and feel to phone devices. I wanted all app elements to be accessible on-screen without the use of buttons. I will have a QR code ready when I get a chance, which will most likely be next week due to finals being this week.

Legacy Weather is not necessarily a beta, but you could treat it like one by giving lots of feedback about what's wrong with it and what kind of features you guys would like. So far, the only real useful thing about this app is the "Thunder Timer" that tells you how far away lightning is by converting the seconds between the flash of lightning and the thunder into miles and kilometers. There was an app on my iPod touch that I have and it does only this and I always wanted one on my phone, so I just made one ;)
