Ripple Player iOS app

Description
Creating playlists is a burden. Shuffling songs is annoying. That’s why Ripple was born.

With Ripple player, creating playlists is no more than a simple click. All you need to do is select one song as an origin, and a playlist will be automatically generated for you. The playlist will be random, yet containing songs coherent and matching each other well.

Advanced Algorithm
– Generate local coherent playlists
– No Internet access needed
– Fast and Accurate
