Ever have a hankering for the good old days?
Remember the joy you felt when you pulled out that beautiful, black record from its sleeve and placed it gently on to your player, listened for that comforting crackle of the needle in the grooves as you lay back and closed your eyes?

Vinyl has always invoked deep emotional responses. Even today it still has that power to commit you to listen to a whole album, experiencing the music in the way the artist intended.

Vinyl Tap will enable you to enjoy reminiscing or have the vinyl experience for the first time using your iTunes library.

Vinyl Tap is an app of passion, faithfully reproducing the time honored experiences of music listening. Every pixel has been beautifully and painstakingly crafted. Records in Vinyl Tap often look just like their real life counterparts, track-for-track.

Just like its the real thing, you will hear the scratch of the needle and see the tone arm moving across the record in perfect synchronization. You can lift the needle and drop it at another point in any song on the record, flip the record over, and even play it at the wrong speed.

Connect your iPad to a set of speakers, and create an old school hi-fi system, fit for the 21st century.

We think you will love Vinyl Tap so much, that it might just become your favorite way of listening to music.

Customer Reviews

Fun-ish. Could be more fun. (3 stars)
Nice looking app, though it could be more photorealistic and less Photoshopped.

No iTunes Match support? I keep maybe 2-4 albums locally on my iPad at a given time. The rest are on the cloud, and thus invisible to this app. :/

Please add some more random needle dropping/moving and click/pop sounds. The same sounds over and over gets old.

Given that this app doesn't do much except look cool, it should try to emul
