Want to have some retro fun?
If you’ve always wanted an iPod click wheel on your iPhone, a new app is helping to bring Apple’s iconic music player back into the modern touchscreen era. Rewound is a basic music player app that’s available in Apple’s App Store. It uses downloadable skins to transform the app into an iPod or more, and it syncs to an Apple Music library. It even includes haptic feedback so it looks and feels like a classic iPod.
Rewound’s developer, Louis Anslow of Rethought agency, has been working on the app for a year… The way the app has been built has allowed it to be published in the App Store, as skins are simply downloaded after the app is installed. It’s a clever workaround as long as Apple doesn’t pull the app, and it will mean others will be able to create additional skins in the future.
MacDailyNews Take: We tested it, it works, just be careful of changing the settings layout interface setting with certain skins or it’ll take some blind poking around to get things back in whack.
The App Store link for Rewound is here.

Save the skins (long press or 3D Touch on each one) to your iPhone’s Photos and add them in Rewound’s Setings>Skin menu.
Have some retro fun!
