Like many others, I never go to the gym without my music. 45 minutes on a cardio machine is just too tortuous without some kind of distraction. (Yes, the TVs are always going, but they're rarely on a channel I want to watch!) So I wear my iPhone in an armband for convenience. That means though that I can not twist around to see or fiddle with the songs when I want to skip around my music collection.

That's where Leech Tunes comes in handy! When you're unable to reach the iPod controls (whether jogging, driving, at the gym, or just plain occupied), simply use personalized gestures to easily maneuver your way around your music tracks. Leech Tunes also has other options such as custom skins, YouTube search and Wikipedia Artist search, and even Facebook Connect to share your current song with friends. Some of the cool and convenient features of Leech Tunes are as follows:

- Main Features:
• Gesture controls for basic iPod functions
• Portrait and Landscape layouts
• 20 built-in skins/themes
• User skin. Use your favourite image as background
• View official site of current track's artist
• Quick web search for related YouTube videos
• Wikipedia info on artist
• Programmable 2-finger gesture controls for easy access to frequently used functions
• Playlist Editor
• Auto-lock disable function with paused music override
• Time display
• NEW! Facebook Connect. Share with friends what you are currently listening
• NEW! Audio route button to easily change audio output including Airplay and Bluetooth devices

- Basic controls:
• Tap: Play/Pause music
• Left/Right Swipe: Previous/Next track
• Up/Down Swipe: Volume control

- Customizable Controls (Defaults shown):
• Double-Tap: Toggle Shuffle Mode
• Triple-Tap: Toggle Repeat Mode
• 2-Finger Tap: Play All Media
• 2-Finger Up/Down: Switch Playlist
• 2-Finger Left/Right: Forward/Rewind (quick-swipe to skip 30s)
• Shake: Shuffle play songs
• Tap & Hold: Play current artist

Although there are many functions listed above, there are also other gestures to change and view skins, show the playlist or play the current album. This is definitely a loaded universal iPhone and iPad gesture controlled music app that takes care of all your needs from searching for related YouTube music videos, to finding the artist's profile, all while ensuring your safety (no eyes needed) when you must have total music control!
COOL CONCLUSION: Leech Tunes gives you easy access to your music, using gestures, in safety and style with sleek skins included to round out the many features of this package.
