Spin for your lucky number and hope it comes up 7's with LuckyAround

Spin, spin, and spin some more with this simple app.

One of the beautiful things about the App Store is that it has just about anything you can imagine. Whether as a programming experiment or to fulfill a real purpose, if you can think of a simple task, the odds are that you will find an app to fit the need in the App Store. And that's certainly the case with LuckyAround, an app that allows you to spin for a random number on your phone. The app has no menus and no options -- just the corner of a roulette wheel and a play button that activates the wheel. Spin as many times as you like for a number or card suit.

This is a simple app, so there is very little to recommend or dissuade you from downloading it. It is, of course, free and because there are no ads, you likely won't find a better random number generator in the form of a roulette wheel. The purpose of the app is not immediately apparent. One suspects that if you need your lucky number to appear or if you are playing a game with friends and need a random number, it is the best way to generate one. There are plenty of free dice apps in the app store as well, but for someone with a love for the casino aesthetic, this is as good an option as any.

Despite its appearance, LuckyAround is not a game -- it is a random number generator with a shiny cover. But it is free, and it works quite well, so if that's what you are looking for, we recommend this app. It is small, so it won't take up much space on your device, it's quick, and it doesn't spit out the same number too many times (as often happens with "random" number generators).
