Ability to map play/pause to convenience keys

New postby Loopy on Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:58 pm

I like to listen to podcasts with the Blackberry in a pocket, controlling play/pause and volume without needing to bring the Blackberry out of the pocket.

I don't know if this is technically possible, but can you allow the option/choice/ability to remap play/pause to the left or right convenience button? I find the mute button difficult to press blindly. Plus I've found that the mute button interferes with the Media Player. At some point today, I believe pressing mute started both Media Player *and* Podtrapper.

Hi Loopy, this is a GREAT idea, and will totally help with the issue that I can't see the mute/pause key when podtrapper doesn't have focus. It still won't work when the berry is locked, but at least it will when podtrapper doesn't have focus.

This is a FANTASTIC idea. I have a roller-ball Berry (Nextel 8350i) and if you don't roll EXACTLY left/right, it goes down too low on the screen (to the area that lists what is playing) and you can't play/pause. Best idea on the to-do list by far.
