There is no perfect method to sort a music library. There are only perfect methods. Each person needs their own.


In a nutshell, the default way the program lists music doesn't work for my library, as seen here:
250
One album is split into 100 tiny albums.

I edit all the tags of my music by hand, and took an "album-oriented" approach. IE, all songs in the same album belong together, regardless of artist, with genre simply being a grouping of multiple albums.
Foobar mobile's default sorting is really strongly artist-based. Every master category in "browse" eventually leads to artist at some point.

So, I propose some way to modify the categories in the 'browse' window, much to the same way you can customize the UPnP server tree on the PC version:
249

Actually, a much better example would be the "Album List" tree view that comes stock with foobar.

It appears you can't edit posts on this forum after a time period.
