We’re going to tell you about retroPod, an excellent music player that mimics the iPod Classic interface. The app has already racked up over 50,000 downloads, and although it hasn’t been updated for a while, it’s a good alternative to regular music players. And if, is free.
So let’s see what this player has to offer and why he collects such good opinions. We already expect that it’s free and it works very well
An iPod-style player
retroPod is a music player that mimics the interface of the iPod. Black background and a color wheel. If the mobile has an AMOLED screen, the experience is even more striking, since we will see the screen completely black (although we can adjust the background color to your liking). This is the level of iPod imitation that access to application settings does not work when touched
The wheel, although virtual, has a good haptic response, to simulate that we are facing a physical element
This wheel gives us a fairly successful haptic response, something we can turn on or off from the app settings. The buttons of it are menu, back, forward and the play / pause button, the classics of the iPod. Regarding the menu displayed by the application, we have the following.
- Random songs
- To sleep
In music we will find our local library, divided by artists, albums, songs, genres and we can even create our playlists. As extras we even have the weird game, as we had them in some iPod models.
The app is completely free and ad-free, although it does have micropayments to unlock features like additional games, more interface colors, and more.
