Music & Audio Controls

Despite competitors making music apps that are pretty to look at, Apple has stayed the course with the music player on the Apple iPad mini, opting to maintain the older look of the music player of the other iPads. Once you pick your song from any one of a number of sorting options, you can control playback with the control bar at the top of the screen. For advances options, you can open the settings menu, toggle and build playlists, or look to either side of the scrub bar for a shuffle or repeat option to your liking.

Music & Audio Management

All music files are stored in a folder with the same name, accessible through the music player alone on the tablet, and you can sort your files in a number of ways, all fitting one aesthetic in either tile or list format. With iOS, there really isn't much you can do wrong here, and that's probably for the best on a mobile device.
