Crowdcast is a new iOS app that lets you and the rest of the crowd choose which songs get played and which ones get booted at a party, or in any social setting for that matter. To get started with the app, you, as the host, select songs from your device's music library and create a Crowdcast party. Your friends and guests can then join your Crowdcast party so long as they have the app and are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
They can then “upvote” or “downvote” on the currently playing and upcoming songs to alter the order of your playlist. They can also upload songs to the playlist and select songs to play next using credits obtained via in-app purchase.
And there's the rub — would any of your friends and guests be actually willing to spend money just to put his or her favorite song or have it played next in the party playlist? There's also the fact that Crowdcast only plays songs from the local music library, as opposed to integrating with music streaming services such as Spotify and Rdio.
But as it stands, Crowdcast is already a neat app for crowdsourced party playlist management.
