Why we love it
Most of the songs might not be the standard fare that you're used to hearing. Many are indie labels who have signed on with the app, so you might not be sure you will like their tunes. Fortunately, Jammer gives you a terrific length to preview each track. Tap on a song from the store, and you get a full minute to explore the loops and one-offs before you make your purchase. When the 60 seconds is up, the music will fade away and you'll be prompted to buy the track if you like it. If you don't want to buy the song, there's no pressure. Just tap "No thanks," and you'll go back to the store to look for more. For most tracks, you can even repeat your preview time an hour later. It's great fun playing around with Jammer, and seeing what you can come up with. I only wish there was a way to record your creations to play for others or yourself later. Then again, I think we can all come up with ways to do that.
