The Scorpion Jukebox, or simply called the Scorpion, is an application that allows the user to select music from a locally stored music collection, put it in a playlist and start playing it. When looking at the feature list, it can be seen that the Scorpion differs from other applications in many respects. The Scorpion's music selection is based on showing album covers in an extremely flexible way, instead of just displaying an enormously large list of directories and files. Missing album covers are downloaded automatically fast and easy. Scorpion uses DirectX to be able to achieve a user interface with a natural look and feel that does not suffer from jerky moving images and slow screen updates. It has very fast response and it is very easy to work with. The Scorpion can be completely controlled by the keyboard using ONE finger only, to be able to perform the required tasks as fast as possible. It is also possible to operate the player using a Touchscreen, wtih minimal screen touches so that we can do what we are supposed to be doing: "LISTENING TO OUR MUSIC !"
