If you’ve ever found the interface on your iDevice’s iPod Music app rather boring, you may want to spice things up a bit with Audium, an extremely simple yet elegant music player for the iPhone.
The best way to experience music on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Beautiful, with a fully gesture driven interface.
By stripping away often over used features such as the playlist or track listing and putting the album front and centre, Audium encourages the listener to appreciate the album as a whole and rediscover all those forgotten tracks.
Aside from its comely design, Audium’s gesture based interface makes it a pleasure to use. Divided into two panes, swiping the lower one left/right will scroll through all your albums. A simple swipe down on a cover reveals the Album name, and a double tap begins the playback. The current album played is always displayed above, where more gestures can be used for controlling playback – Double tap for pause/play, up/down swipes for volume controls and left/right swipes for previous/next track. Naturally, you won’t be able to browse by way of individual songs, but if you have a large collection of albums and want to experience your iMusic via gestures, Audium will get the job done nicely at only $0.99.
