Turn the iPad into an 80’s Boom Box

iPad Boom Box

I know what you’re thinking, the only thing missing from the iPad is the ability to throw it on your shoulder and pretend it’s a boom box, right? Well this much anticipated feature is missing no more, because now you can finally take your iPad back to the 1980’s by turning it into a retro boombox with the free Jamboxx app.

This ridiculous app mimics the appearance of the 80’s boom boxes that every cool guy and his brother had on their shoulder while cruising around the mall. It’s not just for looks though, the app actually lets you create “mixed tapes” (playlists) and offers some simple music player features too.

JamBoxx is a free download on the iOS App Store

Unfortunately the ability to breakdance and look totally awesome while rollerblading down Venice Beach comes separately. But hey, it’s a start.

Downloading a free app is all it takes to look as cool as this guy:

You will be the envy of the neighborhood.

    I sense this is more of a Friday post, but since it appeared on Thursday I may have to call in sick tomorrow and thus I will send this article to my boss as the excuse.

    Thank you for the four day weekend.
