iPod Nano: Quickly Fast Forward or Rewind Using the Wheel

I recently discovered a cool trick with the iPod Nano. I usually fast forward by pressing and holding the forward button. I can also rewind using the back button. However if I’m listening to a long audio book or podcast, this can take forever. Luckily there is a feature that allows users to get where they need to be in the audio file quicker.

While playing a track, simply press and hold the Center button until the bar appears. You can then use the wheel to move back and forth throughout the track.

    Thanks! I have a couple of books on which I’d given up because they had so few “breaks” that I could never find my place. This will make all the difference.
