Xion Audio Player

Basic Application launcher

Feature Requests and Ideas

Postby madmikeee » February 26th, 2011, 3:14 am

Hi Folks, new to Xion but I have been having lots of fun so far. I do have one question though. Is there a way to add a basic command string that would allow us to add buttons to our skins that would launch an application? IE if I wanted to create a full screen skin and I wanted to check the weather click a button that launches a weather app or I want to use Skype.

Thanks!!

...Why would you want such a feature in a Media Player?
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

Why not? Being able to use it as a carputer or just for fun.

another one would be to launch a different player for videos or movies.

I reckon this one is in the same bin as a link button. I don't think Xion warrants this kind of functionality and I reckon Cliff may well be of the same thinking.
Security/Malicious links/exe could then be fuelled by Xion innocently forwarding the user on.

There are far more important feature requests still in the back burner from 3/4 years ago so I reckon this one won't be added anytime soon.
