    Does anyone know how to fast forward in a song or preferably access the tracking bar they inconveniently hid? Sometimes I want to be able to skip to a specific point in an audio file.

    Note this will also work for shuffle/unshuffle which I accidentally discovered before this tip came out. I assume the single tap vs. double tap also works for an album and playlist. Drove me nuts as I was tying to listen to Abbey Road in order and had shuffle on.
