MiTapes is a music player app for iPhone/iPod Touch that allows you to create mixtapes, just as you did on cassette tapes back in the old days. It uses songs in your iPhone music library. It was developed as a way to recreate the experience of compiling mixtapes from the days of cassette tapes.

Raphael Villareal, the Developer said “I used to spend countless hours making mixtapes back in the day, labouring over crafting that perfect mix of songs. I want to bring that back”. He added “the constraints of a cassette tape were what made making mixtapes an art. You can make a digital playlist in seconds these days, but with mixtapes you had to consider not just track selection but tape length and song order as well. MiTapes allows you to do just that”.

I reviewed MiTapes on MacBites episode 75. Below is a short video tutorial.

MiTapes costs 69p/$0.99 and is available from the App Store
