  1. Single-select and multi-select modes

    1. With the new interface changes made in doubleTwist Music Player, there are now a variety of ways to start play back in both single-select and multi-select modes. The single single menu can be selected by tapping on the three-dot icon next to an album or track.
      1. Play: Create a new play queue with just this item.
      2. Play Next: Insert this item as play queue position #2, immediately after the currently playing item.
      3. Add to Play Queue: Place this item at the end of the play queue.
      4. Add to Play List...: Add this item to a playlist.
      5. Delete: Delete this item from the device.
    2. Multi-select mode can be activated by long-tapping on an item or by using the multi-select icon in the upper right. After selecting items, tap on icons on the upper right to perform further activities.
      1. Play: Create a new play queue with these these items.
      2. Play Next: Insert these items as play queue position #2, immediately after the currently playing item.
      3. Add to Play Queue: Place these items at the end of the play queue.
      4. Add to Play List...: Add these items to a playlist.
      5. Trashcan icon (Delete): Delete these items from the device.
  2. How to bring up the Now Playing screen.

    1. From any screen, you can bring up the Now Playing screen by either tapping on the Now Playing bar or by tap-dragging the Now Playing bar up.
    2. To switch between the album artwork view and the play queue view, please tap on the icon on the lower right.
  3. How to pause playback or move to the previous or next track.

    1. You can pause playback by tapping on the play/pause button in the center-bottom. The icon will change from "pause" to "play" to indicate that it's in a paused state. Once it's paused, doubleTwist Music Player will sleep and consume a negligible amount of resources. There is no "off" or "quit" function because of this.
    2. To move to the next or previous track, please use the icons next to the play/pause icon or you can tap-drag on the album artwork.
  4. How to re-order the play queue.

    1. You can re-order the play queue by tap-dragging on the triple horizontal bar icon next to each track. A blue line will appear to help indicate where the track will be placed.
  5. How to repeat or shuffle the play queue.

    1. To repeat the current play queue, please tap on the oval arrow icon on the lower left. It will glow blue to indicate that the repeat play queue function is active.
    2. Tapping on the oval arrow icon again will cause the current song to continously repeat. The icon will change to one with a "1" in it to indicate that the repeat track function is active.
    3. To shuffle the current play queue, please tap on the intersecting arrow icon on the lower right. This will treat the play queue like a deck of cards. Each song will be randomized in the queue and played only once. The currently playing song will be placed at the start of the queue.
  6. Overflow menu.

    1. There are a number of activities that can be activated from the overflow menu.
      1. Share: Share the currently playing item over Facebook, Twitter, or another method.
      2. Rate: Show ratings for the currently playing track. Select again to hide ratings.
      3. Equalizer: Access the multi-band equalizer.
      4. Get Artwork: Manually select or remove artwork for the currently playing track. More information about this option can be found here.
