[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Glissando is a new, purely gestural music controller designed exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch. In the car, on a run, or docked at your desk, Glissando lets you quickly and easily control your music with intuitive gestures. With an emphasis on ease of use, minimalist design, and on-the-go simplicity, Glissando will reshape the way you interact with your music.
Unlike other apps with complex gesture configurations, Glissando places a focus on simplicity with a single set of intuitive gestures allowing you to play and pause, skip tracks, fast forward, rewind, and more without even glancing at the screen. Glissando provides direct manipulation and animated visual feedback for all gestures to enhance ease of use and enjoyment. These unique gestures integrate seamlessly with its striking visual design, which highlights album art and emphasizes the current album, artist, and song title. The result is an attractive player that displays only the information you care about without sacrificing functionality.
Glissando is optimized for music on-the-go with many niceties that streamline the music experience. It offers a full music library browser, and its quick-select feature makes it easy to choose a playlist, artist, album, or podcast and get back to the music as quickly as possible. The contextual menu, revealed with a swipe, let's you play the full album of the current song, or shuffle the current artist's songs or albums with ease.
Glissando also offers a solution for nighttime listening. It's unique nighttime mode not only provides a darker theme, but also dims album artwork to reduce glare and distraction in low light situations. Glissando also features a mode that disables auto-lock so that control is never more than one touch away, making it a perfect companion on road trips, day or night. From intuitive gesture controls to music library browsing, quick-selection, album shuffle, auto-lock prevention, and a nighttime mode designed specifically for low light conditions, Glissando aims to revolutionize the way people enjoy their music.
