Top Notch
SmartPlayer is one of the best music playing apps out in the App Store. It has so many good features that you don't even miss you the native music app. The gestures and other quick features are appreciated by all as they make your listening experience pleasurable. v2.0 itself had pretty nifty upgrades. But v2.1 adds the volume swipe gesture which I specifically requested to the developer. (BTW, Thanks for that). Pros: * Great gestures. * Interface is the best that I've seen. Stands up to other apps like LeechTunes, Reprise, etc and comes out as a winner. * Addition of facebook integration (twitter was already present) is a nice thing as most apps offer either facebook or twitter only. * Display of album artwork is awesome. And the zoom in/zoom out feature is great. Cons: Well there ain't any, but it doesn't updates the play count (Some of my playlist is on play count basis). Technically that is APPLE's fault. So can be neglected.

Consider...
The Cons: The biggest drawback of this app, and this is the one that will make it or break it for me, is that it does not play your media seemlessly (i.e. gapless). When you sync your phone, iTunes will NOT recognize changes in play counts, recent tracks, or song ratings with music played on this app. This app does NOT fix the smart playlist bug, the one that breaks live updating on your idevice. This is no alternative if you are seeking a solution for this. However if Apple ever decides to fix this abhorrent problem with their software, it will most likely function with SmartPlayer, as it breaks in exactly the same way in this app as it does in the native player. The Pros: It does offer the nice addition of a timer that will cut off music after you fall asleep. It offers an assortment of social media outlets. The interface is sleek, but needs work. For instance, the CURRENT TRACK/TOTAL TRACK number is smack dab right on top of the artwork. A little unpleasant to the eye. However, the slowdown that one finds common in apps on your phone is hardly there in this one, and the coding deserves commendation. Overall: The native player is still my personal choice. However if you dislike that one, this is one of the better alternatives out there, but I suggest you keep looking around, at least until this software is updated.

Nice App
So far this has replaced the Apple player for me. Using gestures while driving is the least you can do for the safety of you and others. Would love to see the layout customizable. ( I have no need for the social media icons taking up space) and would truly love to see a vertical swipe adjust the volume. Thanks for the awesome app!
