    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone successfully 'intercepted' the Previous, Pause/Play and Next keys that are on the aluminum keyboard to use them in your own app? I'm working in C/C++ but I'm mostly wondering if it's doable at all right now.

    Thanks!

    You can remap them, but it's pretty useless trying to override system wide keys that most people expect to do certain things.

    My plan isn't to remap them, it's mostly to add them to my app. I have a media player and would like to add support for these keys, seeing how right now they're pretty useless outside of iTunes (except the volume/mute ones)
