Default Video: Cowon J3 User Interface

I whipped up a short video, showing off the excellent UI of the J3 (watch on YouTube for HD):

Damn, that's a hell of a good working UI there. Nice.

This is certainly Cowon's best UI to date and I am undoubtedly the biggest UI snob here.

Damn, I just noticed some parts are missing where I stitched the three separate videos together... damn VDubMod and/or Yamb.

Holy crap! That is much snappier than I was expecting. How is your review coming along?

Maybe it's just me, but there looked to be a helluvalot of finger swipes going on in that video that the UI didn't respond to.

I just got my new J3 today. It's charging at this very moment, so I haven't even powered it up. I'm pretty buzzed, and really hopeful, but ... But I'm 6'5" and have big hands - I have a weary wary feeling that i'm in for a lot of frustrating moments of "no, that's not what I pressed on, I meant the other thing!"

:-(

Brainas, perhaps try Zoom into the text. Works for me and makes it much easier to pick up each song. Generally I find the J3 very responsive to my touches though, so it's only in the browser/music section I have issues from time to time myself.

Default to me it looks like the UI....

to me it looks like UI is hard, almost too hard. does it get easier? i am sort of teck handy. so i think it might not be as big of a problem as i am thinking it will be.

it also looks very hard to put video and album covers onto the player (it makes me almost not want to get it) can you give me "clear and very easy" instructions for these. like you are talking to child lol.

Talking to a child: Son stop being lazy and carry your ass to the search button/J3 thread.

To answer your question the UI is fairly easy and simple loading music is drag and drop so simple enough that even dragons can do it, then you turn on your player and play it. Hit the Browser icon navigate to whatever folders your tunes is placed in then play it. Vids are the same way. Album cover is placed in the folder you want the cover in then renamed to "Cover.jpg"
