It’s short on fea­tures and small, but the iPod Shuf­fle is good at its job.

THERE were a lot of com­plaints on the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of the Shuf­fle and Ap­ple lis­tened.

The fourth-gen­er­a­tion Shuf­fle in­cor­po­rates a lot of im­prove­ments that make it a bet­ter de­vice. The sim­ple five-but­ton de­sign for mu­sic play­back which was left out in the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, is now back.

The but­tons — vol­ume con­trol, rewind, fast for­ward, pause and play — go a long way in mak­ing the Shuf­fle eas­ier to use.

It still main­tains a min­i­mal­is­tic de­sign as there are only two other but­tons on the mu­sic player.

One is a slider that pow­ers on the player and sets it to play songs in or­der or shuf­fle mode, and the other is the VoiceOver but­ton that lets you know the cur­rent track that is play­ing.

If you press the VoiceOver but­ton twice, the Shuf­fle will tell you the bat­tery power left and hold­ing the but­ton down will al­low you to choose your playlists.

Mu­sic on the go

The Shuf­fle makes it easy to flip through songs and of­ten with­out hav­ing to look at the de­vice.
