Theo Watson put together a spinning vinyl app for you iOS device. It would a fun addition to any collection of music making apps, but upon my last search it’s not available in the app store :( I can’t give it a full review because I’m not able to give it a whirl. Anyway, the app uses the device’s accelerometer¬† to control the speed of a ‘vinyl record’ on its screen. Slowing down the record and speeding it up is just a matter of controlling how fast you spin the device. Check it out in the video below!

Track is Full Clip by Gang Starr.

    Wasn’t his video of this app out around three years ago? As far as I can tell “spinning vinyl” was never offered to any app store.

      Hey Brent,

      Yes, you’re correct. This app is an oldie, but a goodie :) and sadly as far as I know it never made it to the app store.
