BPM-showing players for iOS

It's surprisingly difficult to find a way to browse one's music library on the iPhone together with the BPM values that were set on iTunes.

Note that the BPM value is stored in the iTunes database, not in ID3 tags in the individual songs. I was surprised by this; I rather expected iTunes to offload as much information as possible onto the actual files. And probably that would be the best option to avoid end up slaves to iTunes' database. On the other hand, storing metadata aside saves us from absurdly bulky TimeMachine backups...
