Are there any touch-friendly, decent players?

Doesn't need to have a management interface... as long as it has auto folder scanning I can do management in j.River for example.
 
 
The problem I have is that the most popular players have controls either too small for touch operation (mediamonkey, j.river''s main view, etc), others which does respond to touch perfectly well yet the interface doesn't ultimately feel very, er, touchy because some controls are perfectly sized for touch, while others are fiddly or just that it doesn't really work that well (Windows Media Center, j.River's HTPC view, etc), or those which just don't work (Zune).
 
 
Anyone have any recommendations for a player that actually shines with touch?

No - I find I don't use the Remote app at all.
 
 
What I want in principle is pretty simple: Something like Mediamonkey, j.River, iTunes, Zune etc's main screen, but more touch-friendly than these are.
 
 
WMC for example is more a giant iPod like experience and I find that doesn't actually work that well for me. I'd like to be able to easily scroll through the entire library, song for song, in an order that I select.
