    Considering how big the screen is (1024x768), using Cover Flow would pixelate your album art like crazy. Album art is usually 500x500.

    It wouldn't have to take up the entire screen. Maybe half of it. Kinda how it is on the computer.

    yes. There would need to be room to display song information.

    and iTunes does have a full screen cover flow view on the computer/

    When you buy the full album from Apple with the extra features does that show up? Album Art I could see to a point but I copy in my own album art not what iTunes offers.

    I'm sure the posters here mean no harm, but those excuses are b.s. The album art is displayed, fullscreen, while a song is playing so there's no reason not to display it in a smaller, cover flow format.

    My comic book apps use a form of cover flow and it's really convenient, in addition to being pretty.

    Apple should do this. Correction: Apple should have done this from the start.
