As the name implies, Just The Music is an audio app designed with simple playback controls. The main interface consists of four large buttons, a big jog wheel placed in the center, and sliders across the top and bottom. The top slider displays song progress and allows scrubbing, the lower slider controls volume, and the translucent buttons and jog wheel offer easy access to the other basic controls.
Beyond the easy access of the enlarged button surfaces, the translucency and jog wheel are the most significant to the Just The Music experience. The jog wheel provides double duty, allowing the play or pause of music and another way to seek within a track. As for the transparency, it exists to liven things up visually by allowing album cover artwork and coloring to show through.
By default, the color changes continuously, fading smoothly from one to the next. However, there are a few ways you can customize the appearance to suit your preferences. To do this, tap on the More button on the main screen, and then tap Setup. In regard to color, you can select a boy or girl theme, an “x” indicates non-used colors, or disable automatic cycling altogether and select a single color.
In addition to color choices, there are less frequently used features available both in and outside of the Setup section. Still within Setup, swipe upward to reveal the option to disable the album artwork effect, change the font, or enable shake control. Back in the More area, you can enable or disable shuffle or repeat, display song information, and even search for YouTube videos of that song.
Just The Music is compatible with iPad, second generation iPad, third generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 4.3 or later. Even though the iPad is supported, the UI is not optimized for the larger screen.
