No you can't. There's a reason for this.I really hate how Apple is sprinkling its goodies across all of its devices instead of doing what they used to do: focus the features onto one very expensive device (the iPhone) and gradually take features away as one went into the cheaper prices (the iPods). I guess they just want us to buy all the iPods:
- iPhone: Easy calling, Internet access, halo effect of uber-coolness around the owner , and camera
- iPod touch: Thin/portable, Nike+iPod
- iPod classic: All of our media
- iPod nano: Relatively inexpensive, shake to shuffle, tiny, durable (has an all-aluminum case, unlike the iPod touch and iPod classic)
- iPod shuffle: Least obtrusive (wear on one's dress or gym pants) and least expensive, easiest to control without looking
You see? For one to have all the good stuff, one must buy all the iPods. I really hope Apple releases an iMac-like iPod (one that's all in wonderful, and I agree - I LOVE my iMac!).
Can I get an amen?
I think you missed the point of that post.You want the iPhone, the Touch, the Nano, and the Classic to actually be like the shuffle? The reasoning behind all of this is silly.
In the end I agree that some features can be brought to all devices, but you have to allow for separation regardless.
Apple announced shake-to-shuffle at the conference about 3.0, it's been known for some time now, you don't have to be a developer to have watched the keynoteSorry for bringing back a dead thread, but, I didn't want to start a new thread on the same subject. Anyone wondering when and if apple is adding the shake feature soon, the answer is yes. It is on the 3.0 firmware. I found this thread cause I want to turn it off actually. And I know that it is on 3 cause I have a developer account with 3.0 beta 3 installed.
On the other hand, the nano's way of doing things doesn't make sense for me at all.On the Nano, if you're listening to a pre-picked album, just the album, and you shake to shuffle, the Nano shuffles all the music stored on it.
On the iPhone if you follow the same steps, all it only shuffles the songs within the current playlist/album.
if your using apple's iphone headphones that come with the phone you never had to take off your gloves, just double tap the microphone, voila.I love the shake to shuffle feature as well. It'll be especially great when it is cold, or you otherwise wear gloves for some reason. Since i never fancied the iphone glove, i had to remove my glove when i wanted to switch songs. No more freezing because of song changes.
