Random Album Selector

Earlier today I knocked up a Random Album Selector in excel for when I can’t decide which album to listen to.  I posted it in a Facebook group and a couple of kind folks pointed out that the Discogs app already does it, and here’s me thinking I had an original idea! The app does it really well. On your phone just go into your collection, shake the phone and up comes a random album from your collection. Touch the screen and it disappears, shake again, there’s another one.

I recorded my phone screen as I was using it. There’s a slight delay on covers downloading sometimes but that isn’t important, you can still see which album it picked at random:

I shall be using this every now and again, just to mix things up and maybe play some of those albums I don’t get around to often enough.
