I cannot do without music while at the gym, walking at the park or jogging. Yet I wear my phone on my arm, and it is impossible to manipulate the music to my liking in this way without craning my head sideways Exorcist style! 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. No looking necessary!

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. Just a few of the helpful features of this awesome iPod Touch and iPhone music app are as follows:

- Genuine sight free music controls - no buttons to accidentally tap
- Ability to lock in portrait or landscape orientation
- Skip forward/back through track (skip amounts configurable)
- 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
- Dimmer settings for use at night
- Sleep timer
- Set up gestures the way you want

Now here's something new and neat with Flux Tunes. Proximity detection is available meaning that if you put your iPhone in your pocket or purse, the screen will switch off. This will save your battery as well as avoid any screen touches. When you are ready, and remove the phone from your pocket, it's all set to go, and you won't need to unlock it! Listen to your music in a much friendlier and safer way with Flux Tunes. Once you use it, you won't be able to do without it.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Flux Tunes makes it so easy to enjoy listening to your music without hunting around or making it unsafe to do so."
