Now playing view for an iPhone music player app. I've been quite unhappy with the design/functionality of the new Music app in iOS 6, so at some point I'll implement this as a replacement.
In this view, the idea is that the app will determine the 'average' color of the current album art, and then massage it a bit to make sure it fits within acceptable hue/brightness thresholds. Then that color will be used as the background color of the bottom part of the view, fading into the album art. This creates a seamless UI that adapts to the current album cover.
Playback is controlled primarily with gestures (as is the entire app)- swipe left and right for prev/next, single-tap to play/pause, double-tap to show the queue, drag the 'handle' at the top up/down to switch between the now playing/library views.
Stay tuned for more views.

This is nice, but how would it work with different colored albums?
@Ben Muschol TL;DR it calculates the 'average' color of the album art and that's what it fades out to at the bottom of the view.
I'd like to see it implemented, seems perfectly minimal and usable! Also, would love to see this album-color-average-er code in action eventually.
Cool, but what is up with the tiny real pixels?
Great job! I just wish there were retina pixels :P
@Nathan Walker @Coleman Tharp Oops, sorry about that. Here's retina: http://cl.ly/image/2f3z1a1Y0F1s
awesome ui, awesome some, mate! :D
Very nice idea! One thing, what about making the white UI elements with a 90° drop shadow to make them on top of the background? With low opacity ones. It could be even nicer.
@Bill Labus Why are there two progress bars?
@Mic Pringle Top one is playback scrubber, bottom one is volume.
@Guillaume Gaubert I tried that as well, it also looks really nice. Been going back and forth between which one I like better...
Great minimalistic look and controls!
I'd love to have it on Android :p
@Bill Labus Is this going to be a real app someday? I really dislike the new music app on iOS6, and would love a nice replacement.
@Eddy Gann If I ever get the time to do it, definitely. I despise the iOS 6 music app.
@Bill Labus please please make the time haha. I don't know what apple was thinking leaving the lock screen music controls (and all other controls) blue and then changing the color scheme of the music app. It's just all around a blemish in iOS6.
