Basically, Speater adopts iPod interface.
The main differences between iPod and Speater are 
 - Speater plays musics and videos  in one app. 
 - Speater supports smart repeat functions like sound-based repeat, manual repeat, subtitles-based repeat.
 - File Sharing function is  supported (without synchronization).
 - The most important feature is to use Waveform interface. 



Let us begin to explain above button's function.

2. Auto Find Backward : move to the beginning of the previous wave.  
3. Auto Find Current : move to the beginning of the current wave.
