A music player you can use without looking at it. Works seamlessly with Apple Music, iPad compatible.

Listen runs on gestures, not buttons. Whether you’re in a car, on a bike, or running a marathon, you’ll be lost in the music, not the interface.

Good, Could Use Some Updates

I’ve been using this app for years and I love it, but I have to say after not using it for awhile and then reinstalling it, it seems a little out dated. The display size for iPhone 12 seems to be a little off, like the tutorial messages don’t fit within the dimensions of the screen. The display also doesn’t reach the bottom of the screen where the home bar is, so there’s a black bar when there would normally be color (depending on the album art for the track playing) to fit the entire page. I think the option to pinch in and out to shrink or expand album covers would be useful too.

A Better App

The app is indisputably incredible but it can be even better if you not only recognized the music of the Music App but also mp3 files from the Files application making it a universal music player!!

Used to be great

I have use this app for many years and been very happy with it until the last two years. On my iPhone X the iOS 13 update caused this app to crash on open. I emailed support and never heard anything back about a solution. I thought maybe an update in the future would fix it. I’ve never gotten it to work. I’ve reached out to support three times. No resolution. I have tried this app on iOS 13 and iOS 14 and I even did a clean install of my entire phone on my iPhone 12 Pro and it still doesn’t work. The app will open and function the first time I open it after installation but never work again after that first opening.
