I created an entire U.I. Based on Shortcuts. The widget lets me launch playlists from the lock screen and the home screen icons launch playlists or albums because I have no other apps for the homescreen.The big benefit of the iPod touch iOS interface is text search.
If I search for "Dav" I might get Dave Brubeck, David Bowie, Miles Davis.
If I want to play the soundtrack to "Schindler's List" I just need to start typing a few letters rather than scrolling through my albums. If I want Franz Schubert or Richard Schumann, I only need four letters.
I sure did love my last iPod (a classic) before it died. I still have a shuffle and a touch left.
it’s a much better experience than on any of these HiFi DAPs with terrible slow software.
