#200271 - 04/06/13 04:30 PM [Other PG Music Programs] BIAB iPhone - how to delete files?

I'm starting to use BIAB for iPhone more - and loving it. It's working great with AirPlay, and that setup is very handy!

One question - I'm getting some duplicates in my list (my fault.) How can I delete files and or folders from the iPhone song list? I can't seem to find any way to do "standard" iPhone editing on the file list within the app, for example, to delete items, move them into different folders, etc.

I suppose I could delete the app, reload it, and start over, but that seems a pretty severe requirement just to manage your loaded songs.

Any help here will be appreciated.

Hi Jim,

If you click File, then Open to bring up a list of your tunes, clicking on the arrow to the right of a song title will reveal additional commands, one of them being "Delete".

I have the same problem, I'm using the iPad version and I found the delete tab but it only works on the song at the top of the list, if I tap an arrow on another song further down the list to get the delete option etc, only the top song becomes available to delete, any ideas?
