    have you guys agree that Remote music app is much better UI than white/pink UI on iOS7 music

    the transparency/blurry UI depends on album artwork it looks nicer

    The content-aware UI is awesome. Apple might be using the Remote app to test as a new UI for the Music app in 7.1 or 8.0.

    Pretty or not, that screen on the left is kind of a usability disaster - the text is often incredibly hard to read, especially the time elapsed and remaing. And it's nearly impossible to tell whether shuffle mode or any of the repeat modes are enabled or not

    Definitely agree there! The iOS 7 music app is one of the worst things about iOS 7. A dark theme would go a long way towards making it bearable, at the very least.

    i hope Apple will change entirely music app on 7.1
    8.0 is way too long!..

    actually for me, its not very hard to see the text...maybe

    anyway i'm still in love with remote UI...way much better!

    Well, good for you. ;) But you can't seriously tell me that it's easy for you to figure out the fact that the shuffle function in the following screenshot is enabled? (yes, really) Not that it is much easier in your own screenshot that you posted. To me that's just a mind-blowingly bad UX resulting from an apparent total disregard of the notion that form follow function, instead of the other way around.
