Wotja Go Play Screen

Play Screen
Tap image for large


Tap the mix thumbnail to go to "Play Screen" display mode (see also the "Full Screen" option in the Action Button).

Play Screen is a full screen mode of operation but it still has a toolbar. It is great when you want to sit back, look at any included image/message and reflect on the music, but also to have access to the top toolbar. When you first go into it a Fullscreen Top Panel background appears behind the Menu Bar to help you see the controls. To have it always on see: Settings & Always Show Fullscreen Top Panel.

The Play Screen layout is similar to that of the Flow Player except that it has the Album Player Menu Bar instead of the Flow Player Menu Bar. Although very similar, the Status Bar is also slightly different as the left hand area shows the Mix Name (instead of Flow) and the right hand area shows the Mix Remaining Play Time.

Tap in the center of the Play Screen to return to the Playlist Player screen.
