    Ability to add shortcuts to smartplay lists from other apps such as car dock launcher

    Hi,

    I would like to be able to add shortcuts from other apps such as car dock launchers.

    Currently, the only way I can find to create a shortcut to a smartplay list is from the beyondpod app itself. Unfortunately while this is great for adding shortcuts to my homescreen launcher, I cannot add a shortcut to a smartplay list to my car dock app (I use car home ultra but I believe the same will apply to other car dock apps).

    I would imagine this is a fairly important use case for beyondpod shortcuts! I know I can probably work around this using tasker tasks but it would be nice not to have to - and I'm sure some people will not be able or want to do that.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    Not that I can tell. :-( I'm going to give it a go with tasker

    No, I'm afraid it didn't. I'd like it too, though, so hopefully there's still some chance.

    It's still on the ToDo list, but
    a) the introduction of multiple SmartPlay lists meant that some additional UI would be needed to select which one you want, which delayed it, and
    b) changes are planned for permissions related to creating shortcuts in M (and it's not clear how these will work yet), so it will probably be something that gets incorporated in an M-compatible release at some point in the future - assuming that M doesn't exclude the possibility of adding shortcuts at all, which seems a possibility, since it's lumped under "legacy" permissions.
