Japanese text (Lyrics) disappered on iPhone

Postby konawb » November 9th, 2007 5:53 am

I have been listening the feed on my iPod nano and the Japanese Lyrics displayed with no issues, recently I migrated to a iPhone which also have iPod build-in but could not display any of the Japanese Lyrics anymore.

anyone have any experience with iPhone with PodCast ?

i haven't used an iPhone, but i have tried an iPod Touch.
unless they've done a good job of hiding the lyrics, it seems that the iPod Touch doesn't support lyrics... i can't understand why they would leave out a feature that is supported by iTunes and previous versions of iPod.

i'm going to check apple's tech forum now...

iTouch and iPhone don't support lyrics.

Maybe it is the new software upgrade, but I am able to view the text as the lesson plays. No center butt=on, but just tap the screen. At least lessons 1, 2, & 3, I see kanji, katakana and romanji with the english translation
