Gorgeous MP3 Player Is Almost Perfect Except....

This app has almost everything I wanted to play my music library on my iPhone while driving. The design is elegantly minimal. The information about the artist name, album title, and song title are all displayed with a tasteful and modern san serif font; it's important to me that these three pieces of information about the track are all shown with an easy-to-read large typeface. The colors of the type and the background are pulled from the album cover, therefore the display is gorgeously color-coordinated. The album cover is displayed in a full square, not cropped or partially covered up in a circular window. The simple gestures work well. There's only one thing that I have a significant problem with: the information about the artist, song title, and album title does not scroll. If the text is longer than the width of the screen, the information is simply cut off and ellipses were added. Ben, could you please add the feature of slowly scrolling text?

Nice simple interface

Would be even better if you could select whole albums from genres to add to queue

Better than iTunes podcast app...

I am fed up with the iTunes podcast app so I tried this one, and not too bad! The navigation is similar to the music navigation on the old iOS a few issues though- it would be better if I could tap on what I wanted to play and it would automatically play instead of having to tap 'done'. Also a tutorial of the controls would help it took a bit to figure out how to get back to the main menu and how to pause and play. Other than that a good app!
