Can I view an Artist's Albums in Year order?

Post by Drex »

Hi, I love this app and use it a fair bit. To date, that's mostly been through playlists and they work great.

What I really like like, for my day to day use is the ability to choose an artist, then see of their albums in chronological order, rather than alphabetical by name.

My standard file tagging/sorting puts my track in folders called "artist\[year] album name" and I really like this way of choosing from new or old stuff from artists who have decent sized back catalogues.

Can I get Media Monkey Android to behave this way for me? I've poked around a bit, but can't see how to get artist\year\album as the selection sequence. I just installed the beta (2.0.0.1073) in case that had some different options. It seems to have more options, but I can't get them to do what I want - wondering if it's just user error :)

Is this an option? Can I now sort albums by year instead of alphabetical? If so, how?

There is some date sorting, but it is not useful IMO.

Go to Music>Years
==> you get a list of decades
select a decade
==> you get a list of years
select "All" or a specific year
==> you get the list of tracks released in that year|period .. the tracks are sorted by song title, alphabetically

ie. not grouped by Album ... no way to queue an album

It would be useful (to me) if I could browse the album index sorted in Release Date sequence, or the Albums for a specific artist in Release Date sequence.
Is that what you are wanting also?
Want a dark skin for MM5? This is the one that works best for me .. elegant, compact & clear.

Hi there,
How is the sort option coming along?
It seems like a standard function.
