Play it has almost no buttons, because it uses innovative, but simple gestures. You can press the screen for example to pause the music or to start playing the music. By swiping to the left you go to the next song and by swiping to the right you go to the previous song.
To seek forward you just press and hold your finger on the right side of the screen and to seek backward you do the same on the left side of the screen. With this method you have the whole screen to control your music.
The menu hasn't got a back button, but also uses a gesture to go back. By swiping with one finger to the right you go to the previous screen and by swiping with two fingers to the right you go back to the main menu.
You can go quickly to the current song by pressing the album art of the song in the menu. On the same way you go back to the menu from the music player. If the music has stopped playing, the information about the current song disappears and the songs are shown on the whole screen, so you can use the whole screen.
To search for a song, you just swipe to the left and you can immediately start searching.
Play It supports all the orientations of the iPad and iPhone, so you can't hold it the wrong way. Par example this is very helpful driving a car or in a iPod dock.
Because Play It uses nice animations and gestures, everything feels as natural as possible.
