    Ok, I'm not going to try to start a flame war here... I want honest opinions...

    What is the point of Moonshell anymore?

    I have a cell phone that can play MP3s, as well as an iPod Touch, which has a much larger screen than the DS, and can play videos at a much nicer resolution.

    can anyone give me a reason I should have Moonshell?

    I'm rather content with my older, unsophisticated cell phone barely capable of taking pictures and making sounds, thank you very much. If I want any kind of media capability, it may as well be on the device of mine that is better at it.

    Maybe for someone that wants to bring only one thing when they go out?? So they don't have to bring both their DS and mp3 player.

    I'd say if one can't remember to charge their iPod nor properly hold onto a cellphone then chances are it'll only be a short while before their chargeless DS is broken to bits, too. [​IMG]

    making another use for the DS. videos, music, ebooks, pictures. not everyone has the ability to do all this on a single device.

    Here's a thought - How many items do you take around with you ? (on Holiday perhaps)

    Mobile, Netbook [Web access], Ipod [Music/Movie player], Game system [When your lying by the pool], PDA [Address book], Camera etc etc

    With a DS(i) (& the right combo of software) - you can carry a Web browser, Book reader, MP3 player, Movie player, (multiple) Game systems (via emulation), PDA AND a basic snapshot camera (in the case of a DSi) all in one handy package

    And since Moonshell is nothing more than a glorified file selector, I believe IMHO that there is still a place for Moonshell - or in fact any other similar program that helps select & organise all these elements together

    There's no reason why you should have Moonshell but it doesn't mean it doesn't have a point. I don't own any MP3 players because I've never been that into music but just having Moonshell for casual music playing is perfect for my needs especially for my favourite gaming console.

    The point is, why bother with more hardware when you can all have it on one device? I'm sure that's the point of Moonshell that you're missing.
