Touching Your Music

This chapter introduced all the ways you can browse and play media using the Music application. As you’ve seen, the new music player software is a lot more flexible and intuitive than the old click-wheel approach. With the iPod touch, you can flick through your entire collection and tap your way to the media you want to use. Here are a few points to think about before you move on to the next chapter:
  • Cover Flow makes browsing through your media a simple visual pleasure. Tip your iPod on its side to enter Cover Flow mode.

  • Don’t be afraid to fill your shortcut bar with the items you use the most. It’s easy to customize. It’s also easy to put it back the way it started.

  • Save your ears. Adjust your playback volume using the built-in volume controls and limiters.

  • Don’t forget about double-tapping the Home button to pull up music controls, regardless of your current application.
