First I think about the key layout to find the most intuitive way for
the usability. Certainly most things are possible already but maybe
there is a more simple way to set up the user interface.

But there also would be some added functionality: In the key layout that
I have mentioned, it would be possible to start/pause the music from
everywhere (e.g. when beeing in the main menu or the file browser)
without switching from or to the WPS, so without leaving the place where
you are. This would be very user friendly IMHO.

Independently and without changing of the music playing/pausing state
you also could easily toggle between WPS and another screen. This would
be nice, too.

With the current layout, while being in the file browser, I am brought
to the WPS when starting playback. And I have to use another key to get
back to where I have been If I am not wrong there might be no direct way
to get back to this screen. E.g. "menu" brings you to the main menu, and
if you have configured the file browser to follow the played track, the
"select" key brings you to the currently played folder, but not to the
folder where you might have been before.
