The Spinning Vinyl app is ready to rock

The Spinning Vinyl app is ready to rock
It’s not very often that we see a really good and original application, but this one totally rocks! So, what’s so unique about it? Its interface will surely take you by surprise, since it won’t make you do typical things like scrolling, panning or clicking, but you will need to interact with the phone instead. In order to spin the vinyl (so that the music starts playing), you would need to rotate the phone (on a table, for example). The app basically has the accelerometer handle the rest – once the vinyl has whirled, you can start playing with both the phone and the vinyl, adjusting the exact speed that you want your track to be played at. If you rotate it clockwise, the record will start playing backwards!

The bad news, however, is that Spinning Vinyls is not available for download yet, but we hope the author decides to share it soon enough. Enjoy the video below!

Wow, an iphone app. That is totally newsworthy. Great job phonearena editor, you are making your site proud!

While I wouldn't get the iphone for this app, it's pretty badass. I love music, so I almost automatically fall in love with anything having anything to do with it... Except for "Yes we can" on GH2. I hate that song...

Honestly though, this is a pretty sick lookin app. It's not like their reporting Skype is now available or anything like that. Now if he could add some ability to scratch with the record, that would be really sweet.

Scratches all over the back of that son of a *. Talking about voiding your warranty.

Yup. Don't try at home without the use of a phone case. The iPhone is a scratch magnet

It will scratch it but obviously that wouldn't void the warranty. I'm sure Apple knows it's prone to scratching, that wouldn't be physical damage...

If you use that app alot there will be enough to void the warranty. I work for warranty exchange @ ATT and i've deemed phones out of warranty for enough scratches. Good rule of thumb, if your fingernail catches on the scratch its out of warranty.

I've FRU'd out water damaged phones before. It's all about the customer experience. They didn't get charged. ((Not twice.))
