    • for audio files preview, put the media controls higher
    • manage file: preview document files with a doc reader
  • Prio 3 (for WDD 2.0)
    • add operators to the search: contains, is, >, <, >=, <=, starts with, ends with (for dates, have a special keyword like “@Today”)
    • e.g:
      • search: path contains aaaa
      • search size >= 321456
      • Creation Time > @Today -7
    • try to use an expander for the parent items instead of a tree like structure
    • real zoom on pictures, with scrolling
    • ID3 for Mp3
    • localization?
    • Better UI
    • Better Icon

The next articles will deal with:

  • WDD’s installer
  • making WDD available
