iOS: If you’re looking for something to replace your iPhone’s boring music app, in:play is a worthy contender. It features a minimalist interface that is controlled completely by gestures, and while it’s usually $1.99, you can get it for free right now.

We’ve talked about in:play before, and it’s one of our new favourite alternative music apps for iOS. But, if the $1.99 price tag was making you wary of an app you’ve never tried, now is the time to check it out. Hit the link below to check out the deal.

  • I have this and it is indeed awesome if you’re into minimalist, text-only, picture-free UIs. I do have a couple of issues with the app, however. I haven’t been able to find a way to get it to default to a particular playlist other than playing songs A-Z. And when I lock my iPod while the app is in the foreground and then unlock it, sometimes the app will pause my music like as if I had tapped the screen. If anyone has figured out ways around this, I would love to know.
