this 8.4 update on the iphone has me confused, I only use my phone a few time...like in the car.

I had a song playing in my library and the usual option to view the whole album was gone? It just showed the same song over and over and over.

What the hell?

I'm wondering the same thing. When I hear a song I like on the radio, having to search the artist and then select the album is not a good design choice IMO. I don't know why this option is not there anymore.

(I'm a new member here and english is not my main language so excuse me if my grammar is not that good)

At the top of the tracks tap the little title for artist and a drop down comes up

Yes I know how to show just albums thanks but I mean, how to directly show the entire album on a track that is playing now? Before 8.4 we can do this.

When you are on the screen with all the music controls tap the bottom right corner with the 3 dots, then tap the first option. It usually has the album cover on the left hand side and the album name and artist in the middle. Actually it doesn't look like something you can touch but it actually is.

WOW! I'm so slow! Usually the iphone has been simple as cake, and I'm an IT guy...Is apple becoming a bit complex?

THANKS!!!!

I don't understand why I can't simple click the picture, flip the cover and see the album...that was sooooo simple man...now I have to do 3 clicks vs 2 clicks....makes a big difference when you're driving and picking a song.
