Today Twitter released Twitter #music, a new free app for finding and following your favorite artists and discovering new music. Besides the music, though, it’s full of great animation and what feels like some clever UX experimentation, such as blurring the main content if you expand the info overlay of the currently playing song or tap the main nav at the top.

Twitter #music has a unique pull-to-refresh animation, and while playing music you can drag your finger around the spinning CD to fast forward and rewind (hat tip to Chris Herbert for that one).

Even swapping between the initial tutorial pages has a subtle animation that is just fun.
