    Would it be possible for someone to mod the stock music player to add:

    1) a menu option to rotate the interface when keypad isn't open.
    2) an on-screen volume control.

    I ask this because:

    a) I am not a programmer of any sort
    b) I use this little guy

    I know there is no auto rotate, but I was thinking that someone can take the source of the music player (it is open source right?) and mod it a little and release a new app (maybe "Music2" or something). I don't know how much effort it would take.

    Also, I didn't mean auto rotate... I just meant (like the stock browser) a "Flip Orientation" option in the menu or something.

    I have a suggestion of another mod to the music player (this time the phone is G2 Magic)

    I was wondering if it would be possible to skip between tracks using the hardware as opposite to the touch screen. In SE walkmans for example you want to skip a track you can hold the external volume control joystik down, and the player stars playing the next track.

    Its really handy when the phone is in your pocket for example and/or locked and you don't want to take it out/unlock in order to skip the track.

    So i was wondering if anything similar could be implemented with G2, using some of its hardware buttons?
