Simply Jonathan

Least Recently Played

Via John Gruber I got to know of Attic, an iPhone app that finds the music you haven’t played in a while. From what I can read, it has all sorts of nifty features.

I personally don’t have much use for it, because my iPhone only contains music I listen to regularly (ie. the music I really like). However, for some time I’ve had a smart playlist in iTunes that does something similar:

A window from iTunes showing rules for a smart playlist (play count greater than 0, limit to 50 ordered by least recently played)

Of course, the magic is really with iTunes, but it is interesting nonetheless. (I have music in my library I haven’t played since 2007. Until recently I believe some of it stretched all the way back to 2006.)

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.
