Watch Out, SoundCloud: On-Demand Radio App Mixcloud Rebuilt From The Ground Up
What is it with apps now resurfacing all of a sudden with their huge 2.0 updates after nearly a couple of years without any update of any sort? Yesterday, I told you about the painting app Colors!, which finally got its 2.0 update nearly two years since its last update. And today, here comes the on-demand radio app Mixcloud with its 2.0 update following a dearth of updates that also ran for almost two years. So, what's new with Mixcloud 2.0? Simply put, everything. Everything but the app's main purpose of letting you stream podcasts, radio shows, and DJ mixes, that is. Other than that, practically everything about Mixcloud 2.0 is new. Indeed, Mixcloud 2.0 constitutes a "complete rebuild" of the app, which was released back in June 2011. Mixcloud 2.0 introduces a brand spankin' new interface that looks lightyears ahead of its original interface. One of the highlights of the new interface is the new player, which may be pulled up to occupy the screen, like so: [caption id="attachment_421483" align="aligncenter" width="270"] Mixcloud[/caption] From the pull-up player, you can share the currently playing track via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, text message, and clipboard. Mixcloud 2.0 also includes new personalized Feed and Discover tabs as well as a markedly improved search function. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, Mixcloud 2.0 is available now in the Ap Store for free. With its long-overdue but still much welcome 2.0 upgrade, Mixcloud looks set to take on SoundCloud, whose official iOS app was last updated a couple of weeks ago. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
