All I wanted to do is play Magical Mystery Tour album straight through, like in the old days when I had the e.p. and singles. (Same with a lot of the albums I used to have on vinyl and CD)

Got a new Samsung tablet (my first tablet) and it doesn't seem to want to do anything except shuffle play.

I must be doing something wrong, or overlooking something - but what?

Nope, that's how the free version works on mobile. It's a con to get you to buy premium!

I've got premium! And upgraded the app today.

Oh confused Try sending an email to their support? I was under the impression you could do it on premium.

Maybe you have to make your own playlist.

Maybe I need to close remote open apps? How many devices can be logged on at once?

I've been using it on the PC for over a year and never had the problem (though obviously couldn't play Magical Mystery Tour till last Christmas Eve smile )

The first picture is shuffle and the 2nd is shuffle off. Apologies if you've already done this smile

whatdoIget Sun 06-Mar-16 00:44:58

I'll try again

whatdoIget Sun 06-Mar-16 00:45:41

And again

whatdoIget Sun 06-Mar-16 00:46:15

Hth. First picture is shuffle and 2nd not shuffle!

There is a large oval button marked Shuffle with a > sign next to it which I expected to be a toggle. But doesn't seem to be.

*large green oval

You need to click on they track that's playing (at the bottom of the screen) which will take you to the screen shown in my screenshots (obviously with the mmt cover instead) and click on the crossed arrows to turn off shuffle. The oval shuffle button is a quick way to play an album or playlist on shuffle, but to turn it off you need to get to the crossed arrows which are on a different screen.

The large green oval shuffle only turns on shuffle. It doesn't turn it off.

whatdoIget Sun 06-Mar-16 08:56:31

See how it says 'reverend black grape' at the top and bottom of the screen? You have to touch the bottom one and it'll take you to the screen with the crossed arrows and you can touch them to turn off shuffle

whatdoIget Sun 06-Mar-16 08:57:36

Ignore the large green oval shuffle play at the top of the screen

Aha! Though I haven't tried it yet...

Thanks all smile
