iPhone Screenshots



Have you ever needed to pick random names out of a hat? Pick your random numbers for the lottery? Out of the Hat is designed to do just that.


Create groups of names, numbers or any other collections. You can create as many different groups as you like.


For each group you can create items, names or numbers.


Choose a group to be entered into the hat. In order to pick an item either shake your iOS device or tap once on the screen. Your unique name or number will be pulled from the hat. Each time you pick a new item will be picked from the group until all items have been picked.

The hat can be reset by selecting the same group again or selecting another group.

"Teachers are finding Out of the Hat useful for fairly selecting students to answer questions."

If I could give it a zero I would

Charges you 79p then will not download. Have tried on several occasions to download it and picked another app which is free but uses more space which downloads fine. Steer clear of this one. Plus if the developers read this, I want my 79p back

Developer Response ,

There was an issue with the AppStore that has been resolved. Successful downloads are now possible.
