Whenever I use apps then when I switch into music (Cover flow) i see a millisecond loading of album pictures.. meaning I see the note sign....but when i repeat it.. everything is fast, no loading.. I can't remember if it is normal or maybe im just over-reacting because I left my ipod with my friends and they dont know how to use it?? what a logic right? second question when i browse my ipod on itunes, I noticed that the play count of my 3 of my songs are over 200+... i can't remember lisening to it that much but what I know is when I switch off my ipod I left it on that songs.. is switching off my ipod using the upper button or the top button will stop it from playing the songs??
