Now that we have the specifics out of the way it's important to point out the user interface. At first it's a little off-putting thanks to the ads, the busy screen, and scrolling across the top of the screen. As users will quickly find it's actually very easy to use. The song currently playing is displayed across the top of the screen as well as the composer's name and in the middle you can see the song line-up with the current one highlighted with a blue arrow. You can pause, rewind, and fast forward a particular song, and advance or go back in the playlist order.
