What's New in Version 1.4
Interactive Record and Arm.
Improved User Interface
I'm 19 and I love oldies music from the 50s-80s, and for that reason, I have somewhat of an affinity for vinyl. I have a couple apps like this (I would have VinylLove except that it doesn't work on my device) and this one's good, but not great. It would be nice if there could be labels to go along with the record graphics, and if you could skip to another spot when you move the arm. It's really nice that it's free so it isn't a waste of money for anyone who doesn't like the app. Too bad it can't actually simulate an analog sound with digital music. =). Anyway, is this app worth it? You be the judge.
Funny that the younger generations havnt ever heard vynal. The app works well and is authentic sounding. Vynal had an electric raspy aspect to the playback and had an alive quality to it, not like the sterile perfect PB of the digital tunes of today. Brings me back to the heyday of record stores,(what's a record store u youngsters ask. It wud b perfect if the needle made the scratching sound when move incorrectly. What's a needle u ask and the scratch was just that and damaged the vynal.
This has nothing to do with this app but...
What happened to the sexygram app? It was a hilarious video clip editor that slowed down the clip and added a loop of the Careless Whisper saxophone intro. I keep looking everywhere after I got rid of it due to space issues. I really need to recreate this joke, so please bring it back!!
And this record player app is great too. It does what it's supposed to and the sound is awesome.
