Description

The Audio control is used to play a sound. The sound can be any common format, including mp3, ogg, uncompressed wav and aac. Not all formats will play back on an app which is saved to the Home screen.

To add a sound to your app, choose the Audio icon in the Toolbar, then position it on the Design Screen. Use the Property Editor to set the properties you need. Depending on the options you choose, the control may be invisible.

Here's a excellent article on what can and cannot be done with iOS Audio: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/wa-ioshtml5/
