ACast quick help

Posted by acast on April 6, 2010

Player
The player, at the bottom of most views, can be minimized by pressing the right button with a down arrow.

Navigation
The corresponding button on the left side is a navigate button for navigating to a specific view.

Swipe
It is also possible to swipe left/right to cycle through the views. Swipe does not work for main menu, big player and info views.

Shortcuts
You can set up a shortcut to your favorite view by long pressing the Android home screen and selecting ACast. This gives the same behavior as the old ‘Compact mode’, i.e. you will open the view of the shortcut instead of the main menu.
