If you love vinyl and can’t get your hands on a working turntable, then the next best thing is the TurnPlay app from Ramotion. The iPad app has rich graphics that simulate the look and feel of a vintage record player. TurnPlay brings me back to my childhood when I used to sneak into my older sister’s room and listen to her Earth, Wind and Fire 45s.
The premise behind TurnPlay is simple — the app allows you to select a song from your music library and play it on a virtual record player. There’s a tone arm with a virtual needle that you can drop anywhere within the track and a knob that turns the player on and off. There’s even a speed adjustment that lets you slow down or speed up the track and a scratch feature for you hip hop DJs.
