Fat Buttons is a very simple app with one main function – to offer a music player with…fat buttons.
Accessing the music that is already on your iDevice, fat buttons can play your albums or playlists. Designed for people that need to quickly skip a track and don’t want to fiddle about, Fat Buttons has five very big buttons – volume up, volume down, skip to previous, skip to next, and play/pause. And that is pretty much all there is it this app.
I can see how this app could be useful for people jogging, riding a bike, skiing etc as the buttons take up the whole screen, making it very quick and easy to make your selection.
This app isn’t for everyone though, most of us won’t really need buttons so big, but for the selected few that do, Fat Buttons could come in handy.
Does exactly what it says on the tin
Very simple to use
There is no shuffle or repeat functions
It would be nice to be able to create your own playlists
