The new Rewound app is helping to bring Apple’s iconic music player and it’s special click wheel to the iPhones of these days. It’s 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.
Louis Anslow, the app’s developer has been working on the app for up to 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.
