Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • The closer a square is to a certain mood, the more it has the quality of that mood.
  • You do not need to scan again on the next use, you will only have to scan once you add some songs and you want those newly added songs to be analyzed by music square.
  • NOTE: Accuracy may not be 100% since device only scans on the music data and not the title or lyrics.
  • NOTE: May or may not work on other Jellybean devices, please check if the same instructions are applicable with your device.
