Seattle-based independent developer Tanner Villarete has unveiled a web app that has hit the nostalgia of many, many music lovers who started out 20 years ago. Of course, back then gadgets were far from what they are today. But the memories of youth are very valuable.
The developer very accurately rendered the iPod classic and its interface. The only difference is that this iPod now works with Apple Music and Spotify music streaming services.
For example, you can remember Cover Flow, for which many people were looking for good quality covers for music. It was not easy at times. But can a modern application completely replace the classic look and functionality of a gadget that was once so popular for all music lovers?
Unfortunately, there is no access to the entire huge library of streaming services – this iPod opens your library, where you yourself have added albums. The main feature was the control of the Click Wheel with the mouse: the application runs in the browser. The application can be found on a dedicated website or on GitHub. In the future, Tanner said more apps will be added to the iPod as well as theme suggestions.
If you want to listen to streaming Spotify music on your iPod nano, the easy and quick solution is to download the music from the Swedish streaming service and download it to your gadget. But if the music content comes directly from the Spotify server, then all the songs you downloaded from Spotify cannot be downloaded to the iPod Nano. This is because all downloaded Spotify music content is DRM protected. Therefore, you will need an effective tool for converting music in this format to the public, already without DRM. These three letters stand for copyright. That is why there is no download of music.
But when using a real quality music player, you will get good playback. But using the Spotify Converter, you can still download Spotify to iPod Nano. With this tool, copyright protection is turned off, so the music content is ready to be downloaded to your gadget.
Apple’s iPod Nano is considered the best alternative to all MP3 players. It has many advantages and disadvantages. Among the advantages, one can note the relatively low price of the device, as well as its versatility. Among the shortcomings, the main one will be a small memory, as well as the inability to work directly with leading music streaming services.
The iPod Nano has become quite a popular instrument. But he is never fully able to replace the same high-quality smartphone from a corporation from Cupertino.
