Do you love the 80's? Miss the disco 70's? Or just don't get that same feeling listening to your favorite tunes on the iPod that you did from vinyl?

RetroTunes feeds your nostalgia, with a fully functional record player, cassette tape deck, boom box, and 8-track player right inside your iPhone or iPod Touch!

RetroTunes works with the songs & album art in your iPod music library. Just start up your iPod or choose songs to play directly from inside the app, and you'll be spinning away.

Play your tunes while watching the animated turntable, with moving arm that tracks where in the song the record is currently playing. Or pop in a cassette to the tape player, with fast forward and rewind buttons that work just like you remember. And if you are feeling nostalgic for the 70s, switch to an 8-track.

RetroTunes Features:

- Automatically retrieves album artwork and makes an album cover & record with matching label to spin on the turntable. Or creates a custom 8-track tape with album art on it!

- Seamless access to all the songs in your iPod music library.

- Detects songs you are already playing on the iPod or lets you pick your own songs to play from within the app.

- Fully animated turntable- the record spins, the arm moves, record albums fly in from offscreen and the record gently settles onto the turntable.

- Option to add a subtle record hiss/pops to your songs as they play

- Animated tape deck

- 8 track tape player

- Boom box with animated LEDs and thumping woofers

- Skip to the next or previous song , fast forward/rewind and play/pause.


- when you play your songs with real album art, you'll see the actual art going round on the record. Generic names are used in App Store screen shots for copyright reasons.

Please add option for track skipping in cassette modes.

I understand that being able to conveniently skip to the next track is not entirely true to the cassette rewind/fast forward experience, but it would be nice if I had the option to turn such a feature on or off, so that the rewind/fast forward buttons could function as "skip track" buttons. All things considered, being able to skip tracks is one of the pleasant developments of the digital music era. Let's have that at the options screen.

And another poster was correct, the reflections off the record would not spin with the record. Maybe just shimmy a little according to the warp of the album, but not actually spin...

But I do like the spirit of the app. Very old school!

4/5 stars

I agree with everyone else...

How about 45 rpm albums as well? I hope you continue to work on this app. It could be much better with a little tweaking. The bookbox is my least favorite. It would be nice if the led's were in sync with the music. Also, maybe animate the 8-track to pop it in and out? Fun app that takes you back to a different time.

The best of what

All I was looking for was a cool retro vinyl record player that incorporates some analog style noise to run my itunes music catalog thru. Most of the apps out there are DJ oriented (which is understandable just not for me). What this app does right is it gets some of the interaction and needle related sounds down, but could stand a lesson from Retroplayer so far as making the interface more elegant (old style record player with slicker user interface and design). The analog sound effects are better for Retroplayer as well (to my ears). However the latter will not pull music from your iTunes library (which is huge - you have to upload WAV files from your PC - which is too much to ask). The other interfaces (cassette, etc.) look like an afterthought to me. What good is modeling the 8 track or the ghetto box if there is no real or cool animation going on? I would lose them and keep focused on the vinyl and perhaps the cassette deck and offer some different model styles? My 2 Cents. Thanks!
