Comparing FTouch to the stock music app on my phone, there’s nothing the newcomer can do that the old one can’t. That said, I do like the color and organization of the FTouch menus. Style points alone warrant an “install and try” recommendation.

One concern is the lack of an auto-pause feature when picking up an incoming call. My caller was able to clearly hear the track I was listening to while my Droid faithfully multi-tasked both apps. Annoying? Yes. Here’s hoping this gets fixed in a future version.

There’s room for improvement, and with the addition of added features to distinguish itself from other music players, FTouch might find a welcome home on our crowded devices one day soon.
