Tap on any item to display the details about that item. Details include the full description of the item, its rating if it has one, the number of downloads, and its running time if available. Since most items are uploaded by users of the Internet Archive, some items may not have complete details.

Also listed are the actual audio tracks. Tap on one to play it. If the audio format is visible below the track title, tap on it to switch to an alternate audio format if one is available.

Lastly, a list of related keywords may be shown. Tapping on one of these is a shortcut to doing a search for that keyword.
