Hi
I'm currently using the SqueezeBox Controller on my Android phone to browse through my favorites radios via the 'favorites' menu but I miss a menu 'preseleted radios' where I could push one of the six buttons to zap from one 'preselected' to another like on a real remote.

Do you know if there is such an app on the Android market, or perhaps do you know how to ask for that feature to the SqueezeBox Controller software developpers.
Thanks :o)

Would you like to see this as part of an existing UI? If so - how would
you want to bring it up? Accessing the favorites menu is fairly easy
already...

I've noted it ;-).

I think you're right, I'll probably organise my favorites so that the preselected radios are at the top of my favorites (but I'm a newbie, I just saw I could move up and down my favorites on the mySB.com site)
I guess I'm a little frustrated by the minimalist remote of the SB Boom (but great radio !!) compared to the remote of my AM/FM Philips radio that have a lot of features.

Don't worry, you're very clear about your idea! And it's interesting, as
some similar concepts recently have been discussed here...
