comment Differenciating a local search from a global search in one screen
My provisory solution for the current country is a combo box that allows the user to write the country or select it from a list.

We are getting somewhere. This seems like a good solution. There is one problem though. That selection kinda introduces repetition in UI since there is already a something that shows the current country and allows the user to change it. I want to keep it as simple as possible, but I guess you gave a big step in that direction. thanks :)

Thanks for your help Adriaan. It is the same problem. The grooveshark uses a tactic similar to the spotlight. The point is that the type of data is the same, so that organization doesn't make sense :/

That works well in the case of the cities. However, in the case of the songs isn't quite intuitive to search for "R u mine?, UK". Actually, it is quite common that the user might not know where the music is from.

That is why I didn't want to give the example of the cities :/. The problem is that the user has info in the interface that he is seeing things for United States. If I put one search bar there it will induce that the search is for United States only.

In the usability sense. I will try to improve the question :)

comment Distinguish the concept of an album from a song visually
This converges to the second solution pointed out by @Da01. I thought in that solution but it seems so... meh :/

comment Distinguish the concept of an album from a song visually
I thought in the icon-solution. I really need to create this difference because the app requires it. There are two modes of visualization. One that only shows albuns and other that only shows songs (I don't know if there will be a mixed view aswell).

comment How to display a connected boxes with inputs and outputs in a smartphone?
That question is pertinent. The truth is that I can do that limitation if the simplification is worth it. This is a system that I am developing and I am my own costumer, so I am kinda free to do some simplifications as long as the expected value in those modifications is worth it.

Although this is a good proposal I belive that this can make some confusion where 10 blocks or so are connected. Also it doesn't provide a great view from all the schema. If I scroll up, in your case, I know SOMETHING is connected. But what? Knowing what is connected matters in this case.

The addition of soubroutines was thought and probly it will have a automatic mechanism that alows the simplification. You choosed the right example to ilustrate the complexity that this can have, with quartz composer. However, I feel that I can't understand your solution well. In your solution what is the shelf? The right or the left? And that value 7 is connected with what?

That is the interesting part. I don't know. It is a flexible system. A programer can develop a box as a plug-in. A box can represent anything. Usually they represent a transformation. But are boxes that create data (like the number provider, on my example) and boxes that do something (like the display, on my example). I understood your suggestion but I need to show more data. Also, your suggestion probly doesn't scale well with 3 or 4 paralel boxes.

Someone edited my post and then I edited to add an example and that information was lost. I want to thank that person for puting my image and changing the table style. Thanks.

comment How to display a connected boxes with inputs and outputs in a smartphone?
There are several problems with that representation. First it does not identify what boxes are being used (it is important to know if we are using a certain type of box) and second you don't know if you are connecting inputs or outputs or were they belong. Made an image that shows that problem: img688.imageshack.us/img688/6311/faillz.png Bread can't connect with Dough since we can deduce from the last connection that Dough is an input. Inputs connect with outputs. Only. Added an example on the question. Thanks for your answear :)
