PowerAmp

Thumb Up

Folders!

The crown jewel of PowerAmp is the 'folders' option of displaying your collection. Im used to having my music on the pc here with seperate folders for the latest stuff, the best stuff, single favourite tracks, etc, you get the picture. If you do that and find yourself lost when its all thrown into one huge a-z list then PowerAmps for you.

Vodafone is all thumbs on multitouch

Cant be defined as multitouch obviously, but...

Resistive screens are somewhat mildly multitouch in that 2 fingers pressing at the same time creates its own effect. On my WinMo PDA playing solitaire its very useful to slide a card quickly into place using 2 fingernails at each end point and a quick one-two tap of the fingers. If you hold both fingers in place a card sits at the middle point and theres even some small measure of pressure control too where you can balance a card at the quarter points.

Bollox!

How about being able to do 4 things simultaneously in the same time as it takes non multis to do one thing? I regularly handle complaints via IM with 4 people at once while colleagues get through one in the same time
