AirCassette brings back the legendary mixtape to iPhone with a vengeance. Inspired by iconic cassette tapes of the 1980's, the AirCassette app works as a music player that allows users to add songs from their library into a continuous mix. Watching the wheels spin as the music plays hearkens back to a bygone era of the classic Sony Walkman.
This retro app idea offers slick artwork of several cassette labels to select for playback, and when tapping either wheel the song instantly rewinds. Air Cassette is also designed to interface with Airplay speakers or receivers for streaming your tunes wirelessly.
A few key additions I would like to see included in an update is the ability to load existing playlists into the mix and to see the mixtape name on the front of the cassette. With that said, for $1.99 AirCassette is an impressive newcomer to the App Store. I definitely recommend giving it a proper spin.
