Fast forward by tapping the centre button twice and holding down on the second tap. Rewind by tapping three times and holding down the third tap.
Switch to a new incoming call by tapping the centre button once. You can end that new call by holding down the centre button for two seconds.
Inside of the default camera app, press the volume up button to take a picture. This doesn't work with other camera apps, such as Instagram.
Double-tap the centre button to skip to the next song. (You can even triple-tap to go to the previous song.)
