Flux Tunes

COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Music, Native
..UPDATED: 1/28/11, VERSION: 1.9 -- RATING: 4-1/2 Stars..

I cannot do without my iPhone music while at the gym, walking or even at the dog park. Yet I wear my phone on my arm, and it is impossible to manipulate the music to my liking in this way. Flux Tunes solves this problem by giving an easy choice of taps or swipes on the screen without having to take your eyes off what you are doing, or having to remove the armband. Simply tap to Pause/Restart, slide left/right to Change Tracks, slide up/down to Adjust Volume, slide 2 fingers left/right to Adjust Playlists, and slide 2 fingers up to play music from your whole Library. In addition to being far more safe and convenient while driving for instance, this app is well suited to those with visual impairment as there are no tiny touch controls involved. Listen to your music in a much friendlier and safer way with Flux Tunes. Update revisions to Flux Tunes as of 12/22/09 now include through Version 1.2:
- Support for landscape orientations
- Skip forward/back through track (skip amounts configurable)
- Support for audiobooks
- Faster startup for large libraries
- Allow autolock after long periods with music paused (timing configurable)
- Improved text readability
- Settings available in the application (rather than settings app)
- Option to reverse meaning of left/right swipes
- Shuffle indicator and track position shown
- Shuffle mode changeable via gesture
- Improved gesture recognition

"Ever tried to use your iPhone/iPod Touch to play music while you're driving? Or even while jogging while the player is attached to your arm or hip? That's where Flux Tunes comes in with control playback along with intuitive gestures anywhere on the touchscreen."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0  or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: This app required OS 3.0 as it needs to access your music library. There is a YouTube video demonstration for you to view at:
