TapTunes is THE alternative music player for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Not only does TapTunes contain all of the playback functionality of the built-in iPod app, it also offers a whole new way to experience your music collection: visually, as if your albums were laid out in front of you.

And since TapTunes is fully compatible with the built-in iPod app, you can switch back and forth between TapTunes and other apps without missing a beat.

There are three different ways to view your albums:
* TILED: albums are arranged in a grid, which you can slide left and right
* SCATTERED: random piles of albums, which you can drag individually
* CIRCLED: albums form a circle, which you can drag up and down to rotate (full version only)

Have you ever heard the expression, "Don't play with your food?" Well, with TapTunes, you CAN play with your music: drag it, pinch it, spin it, or simply tap it to zoom in a specific album or artist. Then you can choose to play that artist or album, or you can tap the album again to see a song list. It doesn't get any easier than that.

Additionally, TapTunes allows you to search your music by artist, album, song, or genre, complete with auto-complete and search history.


Additional features available in the full version of TapTunes:
-Circled mode
-Now Playing View which allows you to skip to any song on the album or play any album by the same artist
-Random Artist and Random Album modes for when you want the app to narrow it down to a single choice at a time
-Animated album layouts
-Filter by playlist
-Shuffle by album mode
