- Q - I'm using an iPad and notice some differences. What's up with that?
A - Yes, the iPad does some things differently. There are some features that simply won't work
in the iPad, and some that we've provided work-arounds for. Here are the differences we've found so far:
- In order to scroll the various lists you must use a 'two-finger swipe'.
- When selecting a video to play the video will not automatically start playing. You must press the PLAY button.
- For non-iPad users you have the option of playing all the songs in the list. iPad does not support this option.
- Some things display and work differently in the iPad. The things we've noted are the Blogs page, but there could be others.
