Chapter  12

Playing Music

In this chapter we show you how to turn your iPhone into a terrific music player. Since the iPhone comes from Apple—which popularized the now famous iPod electronic music player—you'd expect it to have some great capabilities, and it does. We'll show you how to play and organize the music you buy from iTunes or sync from your computer, how to view playlists in a variety of ways, and how to quickly find songs. You'll learn how to use the Genius feature to have the iPhone locate and group similar songs in your library—sort of like a radio station that plays only music you like.

TIP: Learn how to buy music and use Ping (social networking for music lovers) right on your iPhone in Chapter 22: “iTunes on YourDevice.”
