Description:
BlindPlayer is a music/audio files player that does not require any visual interface.
The idea is that you use the shoulder buttons to control this music player. The only time when you actually need the screen is for the first step where you have to select a music file in a folder full of other audio files.
Then, as it starts playing the audio file, you can close your Pandora (make sure it does not go in low power mode) and control playback with the following:

LEFT SHOULDER button:
It acts as a function selector. Every time you press it, it cycles between the following functions.
Pause / Next / Previous / Lock / Quit
As you cycle through them, you can hear a voice over the music track playing to indicate which function is selected at the moment.

RIGHT SHOULDER button acts as an action button.
It will activate the function selected by the left shoulder button.

For example, if you select "Pause" with the left shoulder button, and press the right shoulder button, it will pause playback.
If you select "Next" with the left shoulder button, and press the right shoulder button, it will jump to next track.
The only exception is "Lock" which will basically prevent any accidental right shoulder button click and ensure the playback continues until you remove the lock.

Note that are no preview pics, as there's no visual interface per se...

I hope you find it useful to make the Pandora a better audio player on the go.

17th November 2014: Build 1 / First version, except rough edges while it should be functional.

@edgex004 bluetooth support does not work well on SZ firmware, so no can do here. 2. Can do, but will make it a bit more messy. 3. i will look into that. 4. why would you want display since it's a blind player ? :)
