Thumbnail List

Postby IceKirby » Sat Nov 13, 2010 12:51 pm

Hello.

I would like to suggest a file view mode similar to a thumbnails view, showing the file icons in a grid-like way, with its abbreviated name being shown below the icon and the full name of the current selected file appearing in a field in the bottom of the screen.

It would make finding and choosing games/homebrews faster for stuffed folders (althrough it would not be that useful in finding other files).

How would abbreviations work? By just cutting the name at some point?(I can't think of any other way it could work) Also I don't think abbreviations are even necessary just the icon and name of the selected item would be better as it would allow 4 rows to be displayed instead of 3. Anyway I made a quick mock up to see what it could look like with or without abbreviations.

Hmm I suppose 3 rows is a bit easier to look at. Of course having both options would be great.

One small problem that I can think of would be that you couldn't use left and right to "flip pages" anymore but I suppose L and R could easily be used for it instead since currently the buttons do nothing important(at least to me) Or if someone actually thinks accidentally adjusting brightness with R and using L instead of b to go back are super important features holding x + up/left or down/right could also be used to flip pages.

The Supercard DSTWO has something like this already.

I personally would love to see it in AKAIO as well.
