You know what it's like when you're listening to your music and a song starts playing that doesn't fit your mood, or that's not quite your favorite. A fellow iPhone enthusiast today told me about Opus which easily lets you tap or flick your way to the songs you want without looking down at your display. This suits me to a "T" as I'm often at the gym with my music playing and unable to focus on the device at the time. Fortunately, with Opus I can change tracks, adjust the volume, seek, play or pause without fiddling around with the controls or taking my eyes off the exercise equipment. The default settings are: flick up to increase volume, flick down to decrease volume (makes good sense there), tap to play and pause, flick left to go to previous track and flick right to get to next track (good commonsense gestures). However, these gestures can be customized so that you are in charge of what motion you will use to control your device. I find a most helpful setting to be Touch Lock where I can put the device in lock mode to prevent unwanted taps which will change the order of the music. There are many other intuitive and useful features that you will love about Opus. For safety and convenience, I would recommend everyone try this thoughtful and user-friendly app.

"Opus isn't your average touch and gesture based music player. It's much more. It lets you fully customize what each tap and flick does. You are able to save different gestures for different profile activities, and also auto-rotate or lock the display to landscape or portrait orientation."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Select "Music on the Fly" feature if you want to have a customized set of songs to playback at any time. Also for demos, visit: Opus
