+1 for Bugfix: Folder browse: Keep similar folders distinct.
This one got me because I listen to a lot of video game soundtracks. The weird thing is that the "folder merge" doesn't always go to the last similar folder. An example:

Etrian Odyssey
Etrian Odyssey II
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII
In the Clip+ folder browse, I saw Etrian Odyssey (the first one) but then Final Fantasy VII (the last one). Weird. My work around:

New Folder names:
Etrian Odyssey 1
Etrian Odyssey 2
Final Fantasy 6
Final Fantasy 7
Also, I want a quick way to Skip to Previous / Next Folder without having to navigate the screens.

Ideas for implementation:
  1. Hold Up to skip to previous, Down for next.
  2. Add a new Hold-Select button option for Skip to Next. (Not so great but it might be workable.)
  3. Left and Right button double-click, like Rockbox. This seems the most intuitive to me.
Also, I don't see why Skip Prev/Next has to be limited to folders, either, although that would be my main use. It could be context-sensitive enough to skip to next Genre, Artist, Album, etc, depending on how playback was started.
