ipod nano gen 7th - how to change song quickly??

I'm thinking about buying the new ipod nano 7th gen. I love the ipod nano on the 4th generation because i can change the song back and forth without looking at the ipod (buy just tapping the forward and backward button). Do you know if i change the song on the ipod nano 7th generation by click the volume rocker? or by sleep/wake button? I need to change the song quickly without looking at it?

thanks

Well, it hasn't been released yet, so no one knows the answer to your question.

That being said, the 6G Nano lets you quickly skip forward a song by double-pressing the sleep/wake button. I would imagine that you would have the same (or a similar) option on the 7G Nano.

I think there is a button in the middle of up/down volume buttons, which works like on the remote of earphones. So when you double-click it, it changes the song forward and when you triple-click, it changes the song backwards.

Yea the headphones provide one easy way to do that - there may be the sleep/wake button as well.

I didn't mean just the headphones, there's also a button on the nano in between the volume buttons. At least it looks that way.

  • Turn iPod nano off completely, or to turn it back on - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds.
  • Adjust the volume while listening to songs or other media - Press the Volume Up or Volume Down button. These buttons also control the volume for alerts and other sounds.
  • Play or pause audio - Press the Play/Pause button.
