MusicTandem Offers Free Music Listening On The iPad
Listening to music via the iPad often means paying for it. Now, a new app lets you listen to the artists you love (and those you haven’t experienced yet) without spending one dime. And yes, it comes highly recommended. Created by AppTamdem, MusicTandem lets you create music channels using videos posted by YouTube, Last.fm, and The Echo Nest. The end result is quite nice. Upon entering the app, you’ll be asked to select an artist using a simple, yet powerful search function. Simply start typing in the name of the artist you want and the app will begin making suggestions. Once you select your artist the real power of the app is revealed. Almost immediately, music by the artist begins playing. At times, you’ll also see videos. Best of all, you can skip through songs and/or videos without seeing pesky ads. MusicTandem also makes it easy to find and then enjoy music from similar artists. As you do, one click creates other music channels. Additionally, you can also search for artists by genre and tags. As you add more channels (there are no limits to how many you can have), they’ll show up under Recent Channels. You can also setup Favorite Channels. Finally, clicking on the heart keeps track of those songs you absolutely love. MusicTandem also includes AirPlay support, so you can enjoy watching and listening to your music channels on Apple TV with your friends and family. And like most apps, MusicTandem comes with the ability to tell your friends about those tracks you’ve enjoyed using Facebook and Twitter. MusicTandem is available in the App Store.
