  1. Make sure that your screen is awake. Tapping a MoodBlock does not work when your screen is not activated (black) - there is a security feature in iOS that prevents this from working.
  2. Move the upper edge of your phone towards a MoodBlock. For best results, don't tap the block but hold it about 0.5 cm away from the phone.
  3. Hold your phone in this position until a notification pops up. Click on the notification.
  4. The MoodBlocks App should now open, and music should start playing on your "start speaker," and any Sonos speaker that is currently grouped with this speaker.
    1. Once your music starts playing, you can change where music should be playing inside the MoodBlocks app.
