About this app

The app will show you all the music on your device, sorted by Artist, Album, and a list of all the songs. Your mp3s can be played, paused, and rewound.

Pick your favorite colors to bring back old memories

The click wheel works just like how you remember, with haptic feedback while scrolling. You can adjust the clickwheel clicker, shuffle songs, and/or repeat all options in the settings.

This was a lot of fun to make, if you have any suggestions please use the email below :)

It's a very awesome app to sense the nostalgia of listening to my favorite music from when I was small because it's got amazing features, themes, folders, etc., especially a great way to bring in the clickwheel! I'm looking forward to getting the Brick game and the themes! By the way, when I select the album, artist, genre, and Playlist, it takes forever to load all songs from each one if it's multiple songs, so can you fix this bug please? Thanks 😊

This really makes me nostalgic for the brief period of time around 10 years ago when I owned an iPod Nano 3rd gen. It pretty much just works like one would expect. Love the lack of ads. Here's what would make me increase my rating to five stars: 1. Instead of seeing audio files everywhere on the device, let me choose what folder(s) to pick files from. I keep my voice recordings outside of my Music folder for a reason. 2. A better way to make playlists. What's there appears to be faithful, but it's not practical to add each song individually when I want to add 300 songs to one. I made a playlist of 2 songs as a test and I couldn't find where the playlist file was stored on my device in order to modify it, so I'm stuck adding everything individually. I'd be happy to be able to add whole albums/genres at a time. In my case it would be less work to do that and then remove songs I don't want. Some extras I think would also be rad: 3. Take advantage of the touch screen a little bit: Let me search for songs or rename playlists using a touch (or physical) keyboard. Let me toggle repeat and shuffle by touching the icon on the Now Playing screen. Maybe even let me scrub through tracks by touching the bar for time elapsed. 4. Darker dark mode. I'm talking pitch black background and light text. Gotta save that battery on those AMOLED screens. 5. Options for accent color would be nice. Maybe I want scarlet icons/menus instead of blue. The playlist issue is the main reason I rated 4 stars instead of 5. I love what you're doing here, and I'm going to keep the app installed and see if you update it to improve that (and I'll be happy to buy a couple of the theme colors if you do). For now, I'm going to look for something else. Keep up the good work!

Honestly this app is amazing and has great potential! The reason i did not give 5 stars is because there are some issues. sometimes the music will stop while playing, or when i go to skip songs it stops the music. Another thing i would like added is the ability to link it with Spotify or apple music so that more people can use it. You have to have downloaded music on ur phone to play.
