[prMac.com] New York, New York - Longtime independent developer, Andrew Kaz today is proud to announce the release of Turntable for Mac OS X, a revolutionary new kind of Music Player. Turntable revolutionizes the music player software interface. Rather than 'computer linear' like iTunes, Turntable is fully visual, full-on immersive - It features nothing but Albums, Album Art, and Artists.
Turntable is also the first desktop music player ever to present real albums just as you'd have records or CDs in real life. Albums and album art play full-screen, wide-screen on your desktop computer. So it's the first time in the world that album art displays just like a real-life LP, like the records in the 60s, 70s, & 80s, as a personal computer interface. It features 3 Main View Modes for Navigation:
* Albums (Fully immerse in Album art to select an Album)
* Records ("Flip" through full screen "Records" like real records, each album's art full screen with dimensionality; tap & see the Record with its track list)
* Artists (Full-screen 4-column wide selection chart of Artists)
"I believe that this represents the future of the music player interface, that they're bound to adopt. Just kind of a conceptual inevitability, its visual nature, the human dimension most needed for music player software," said creator Andrew Kaz. Apple adopted Kaz's interface for his "Classics" book reader app in 2010, for their "iBooks."
* OS X 10.9 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 0.9 MB
Pricing and Availability:
For a limited time, Turntable is offered at only $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Music category. Please visit the website for images and more information. A free demo is also available for those who want to try the app. Members of the press, please email Andrew if you'd like a copy of the software for review or editorial purposes.
Andrew Kaz is a longtime independent developer, having been on the Apple platform for over a decade, passionate about human interface before the iPhone was introduced. He played a role in bestselling, award-winning Mac app Delicious Library in 2003, at the age of 13. Before that, he was selling software from a young age. At the age of only 13, a sole programmed effort sold 50/copies per day and made $5,000 in the first month - long before the App Store existed, and before Apple dominated the market, when their market share was dead. In 2008, at the age of 18, he released Classics with partner Phill Ryu. Classics rose to top of the iPhone charts, was featured in Apple's TV ad, and in 2009 adopted in the form of their new core app, iBooks, like Classics.
