What InstanTunes does:
It generates a queue at the tap of a button (optionally choose to have it automatically make a queue as soon as you open it). You get to specify how InstanTunes makes this queue - maybe you only want greater than 3 star songs? Maybe you want to listen to songs you don't often listen to? You can then optionally finetune your queue - add, reorder, remove songs - all in realtime while your queue is playing. Then tap and swipe away to control the playback with InstanTunes' innovative gestures.

Listen from anywhere:
InstanTunes works in sync with the built in iPod or Music app. This means you can quit InstanTunes and continue to listen to your awesome queue while you use your other apps (even if your device doesn't support multitasking). You can also stream your queue to AirPlay devices.

Queue generation settings:
You get to choose the source of the music (either your entire music library or just one of your saved playlists). Then go on to choose if you want it filtered. Perhaps you'd like to try one of InstanTunes' intelligent filters. Maybe you only want certain genres of music? Perhaps you want to listen to songs that have never been played before? Or only songs with 5 star rating? Choose how many songs you want in the queue. You also get the option to shuffle this queue in a completely random order.

If you want to listen to something different each time you generate a queue, there's a cool feature called SmartMix. When SmartMix is chosen as the intelligent filter in your queue settings, InstanTunes will gather metadata from your music library such as play count and skip count and then create a music queue that you will adore.

Effortlessly control music playback and volume by tapping and swiping which makes InstanTunes ideal for when you are busy driving or don't want to have to mess around with small fiddly buttons. On iPhone & iPod, the artwork glides along seamlessly as you drag your finger, adding a sense of realism and fun to the experience. Of course you can optionally turn these off or change their functions.

Save queues:
Once you've generated & fine tuned your dream music queue, you can save it within InstanTunes. Therefor, it won't clutter up your music library as yet another on-the-go playlist.
