at least this is for me...while looking at the current song's album art you can slide you finger from left to right(like to delete email or txt chats) on the album art to go to the album list/playlist screen. Not like the 'back' of the album art. Kinda dumb and useless but its a quick way to get to the list of songs on the PLAYLIST instead of the songs of the album of the song you are listening to.

Interesting. It sort of works. It seems responsive only about 50% of the time. I don't know if this chance factor makes it any more efficient than the back button.

so are you talking about the same thing it does if you just touch the "i" on the bottom right of the screen while in album art?

Album art while iPhone is in vertical position, not horizontal.

For me this does the same thing as when I tap the left arrow that appears on the upper left above the album art.

You can also simply tap the album art, in horizontal or vertical, to see the list of songs. There are many ways to get back to just the album art.

It goes to whatever icon/view you last selected at the bottom (like when you're not looking at the album art).

For example, if you're looking at a list of videos and you press the "now playing" button, swiping a finger across the album art brings you back to the video list (or whatever view you picked last). All in vertical mode. Kind of a shortcut... Nice find !

Ok. Yep. I see this feature - I had always used the left arrow button at the top. Nice.

Not to be picky (only to understand the point), how is this a "shortcut" if it's a more elaborate gesture than just tapping the arrow in the upper left?

Well, I did say “kind” of a shortcut. Alternative - may be a better word though...
