NaNplayer, another music player for your Palm Pre

Do you listen to your music on the stock music app? If you do, then you'll get what I'm about to say next: I hate the initial lag when you pop open the app, especially when you have a large library of music. Well, there's this new webOS music player in the works that will eliminates the lag altogether. And thats NaNplayer. It's a pretty standard music player, with a simple and clean user interface. One really cool feature it has is the 'GPS location Playlists', basically you can assign playlists to a specific location, like a Gym for example. Another feature the stock music app doesn't have and NaNplayer do is the ability to create playlists right on your Pre.

NaNapps, the maker of the App is hoping to release NaNplayer this Month. And it will be a pay app, for around $3-5.

I would be all over that app if it could remember my place in audiobooks and podcasts. The lack of that feature on the pre, when I had it on my iphone is probably going to force me into getting an ipod.

Don't jump ship just yet. I didn't show all the features in those videos.

There is an easy way to save your place in long podcasts using NaNplayer. It works with songs , audiobooks with chapters, and podcasts. You simply click on the Save Playlist button in the Now Playing view(circle with a pencil in it). The save dialog will have a checkbox to save a bookmark along with your playlist.

I think I'll post a video demo of this feature. Look for it tonight or in the morning.

Does it do seamless mixing between tracks? I'd be willing to pay a few bucks for that over the discrete track playback of the default app.

Can your NANplayer do EQ? Or be able to seamlessly be able to mix your tracks or songs in the playlist? Well,if you implement those advance features,your App sale will quadruple. Either good work,and hope to get it when it comes out. I like listening to music on my PRE,so this will be perfect App.

caitlin i feel you. i have the same issue for songs. That said i was using drpodder today to listen to a podcast and it saved my place in a downloaded podcast.
and the guy doing music player remix added bookmarks to his app. Check out homebrew till this is ready. i think it will tie you over.

any way to make genre go to artist, then album? Going directly to songs kinda makes genre useless as if your like me, i've got some genres with 6000 songs. I can't possibly navigate that way. You'll notice the ipod doesn't got from genre to songs either. so if you pick hip-hop then you get a list of maybe 200 hip-hop artist, then their album, then songs. The way you have it man, i'd just get a neverending list of songs. And

Will the app be able to play / stream from .m3u files posted on the Web?
