Music library

    All Albums
  • Expose five pinned pivot in music library which are all tracks, all albums, all artists, all playlists, and most recently added. There are more auto preset using usage pattern under more auto-search.
  • open issue: has to decide an appropriate terminology for other pivot -own by stacy lewis
  • Expose two filters -albums and artist
  • open issue: where is group by? I assume that group by is with view by, so that user click the icon of view by, users can see both of them.
  • Let user navigate into get songs. double click to open an album
   
      All Artists
  • Open issue 1: here is two different opinions that First, we need to have consistent users behavior with all albums and all artists. The reasons is that there is one more tiers, then we have to let user navigate into the second tier. We have to give consistent view like albums. All artists view is supposed to thubmail of artist picture, not expose sub tiers. Then what is this view can be? call by " all in one view" which we add another pivot.
  • Open issue 2: On the other hands, Pivot has individual strength or benefit to present users to be albe to see and do easily and quickly. It doesn't have to keep consistenting behavior this case. Another consideration is we already have enough pivot that user has to understand and use. Do we have to add another pivot which call by "all in one view" which actually this view is that the same presentation of all artists.
   
    Filter 1
  • Now in LH build you can see that it shows all sub catagories under genre, year, size and duration. Even though the catagories are different here. In music UX team will decide what we think to be filter lists here.
  • open issue: is it better to show sub catagories in drop down? or if this is MRU, then users choose one of filters, show the sub catagories under it.
  • The default will be albums and artist, but the filter area will be MRU, so that it will be changed whatever you used recently.
   
    Filter 2
  • The default will be albums and artist, but the filter area will be MRU, so that it will be changed whatever you used recently.
  • open issue: is it better to show sub catagories in drop down? like LH Build has the function now. If the lists are so long, is it an appropriate choice to present to user? or if this is MRU, then users choose one of filters, show the sub catagories under it.
