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…..
Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
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!
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!
