RandomPlay creates unique interactive visual playlists on your iPhone or iPod touch.

Upon launch you’ll see a random selection of 12 tracks from your music library laid out in a grid and the first song will start to play. When it finishes it will be replaced by another so you won't have to keep refreshing your visual playlist.

RandomPlay is ideal for those times when you're not sure what you want to listen to but want to have more control than just telling your iPod to shuffle all songs. It looks great and works well with speaker docks and hi-fi systems. The screen stays on so it's easy to see not just what's playing but also what's coming up. Plus, it's just great fun to play with!


Just tap the cover of the song that’s playing to pause it or tap another cover to play that track instead.

Delete tracks

Double tap any song you don’t want to hear and it will be replaced by another.

Song info

The artist and song title of the currently playing track are displayed at the bottom of the screen. If you're not sure exactly what songs are queued up to be played, you can tap and hold any cover to pop up a window displaying the info for that track.

Shake to Shuffle

If you don’t like the look of any of the tracks RandomPlay has chosen, just shake the device to replace all 12 with another random selection.

RandomPlay likes to look good, so will only choose tracks with cover artwork, and because we think it works best with music, RandomPlay will also try to filter out your podcasts and audiobooks.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at support@chilliX.net if you have any problems or feature requests.

Note: A few iPod touch users seem to be having a problem where RandomPlay won't launch. Please contact us at support@chilliX.net so that we can help you out.

Good Idea, Nice Design, Needs Work

The idea of this app is good. The design of this app is good. It technically does what it claims to do which is to grab 12 tracks with cover art, display them on screen and play one song at a time. It IS worth .99 as I feel most apps are worth. However the problem with this app is in the couple areas it needs work (which I hope the developer does at least some of).
1. It needs to exclude audiobooks. It already works to exclude podcasts, but audiobooks are not excluded when looking for random tracks. The main issue here is that most audiobooks contain 100+ tracks per book. Add 3 books and that might be 1/3 to 1/2 the tracks on the device. EVERY time I run this app I end up with 1/2 audiobook tracks which is very annoying.
2. Use the built in ipod app for playback in the background. It's annoying to a have a music app that when exited for a call or whatever stops playing and forgets what you WERE playing. There are planty of apps in teh app store that do this well (one example is "Moodagent". When you exit the app it maintains playback and the random playlist it created in the native ipod app.
3. Stability. It's not a HUGE issue, but at least 1/2 the time I run the app I wait 20-30 sec for it to open and then it closes immediately. Then I open it again and it's fine.
4. I personally would like to see it work in landscape mode
5. I would some way of making the artist and track info on the bottom bigger as I use; and I many others do to; this app more in the car than anywhere and find that it's nearly impossible to readt the tiny text at the bottom for artist and song.
