Listen up! Listen for iOS has just received a major update. Listen is a simply beautiful music player app that's decidedly gesture-based, thereby lending itself well for eyes-free operation, particularly when you're driving or running. With its gesture-based interface, you can swipe left or right to change tracks, tap to play or pause, and swipe up to add a song to your favorites playlist. And now, through its new update, Listen has gained support for two new gestures, either of which makes use of two fingers. There's the two-finger volume control and there's the two-finger scrubbing control. What's more, the update brings improved gesture recognition.

The new version of Listen is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later. Listen was originally released in September 2012 and relaunched as a new app through its 2.0 update last month.
