Chapter 16. The Songs Remain the Same

In This Chapter

  • Locating songs by artist, album, or playlist

  • Repeating and shuffling songs and albums

  • Creating and saving On-The-Go and Genius playlists

  • Playing an iPod shuffle

  • Tweaking the sound on your iPod or iPhone

Browse by artist and album, select a playlist, and even create playlists on the fly — this chapter explains it all, for any iPod or iPhone. Note: If you have an iPod shuffle, everything you need to know is in the section "Playing an iPod shuffle."
