August 17, 2009

1. TuneWiki

Features: A social app, meant for music. See what’s hot right now by seeing what everyone else around you is listening to. Find lyrics to the song you’re listening to. You can even listen to music while reading the song’s lyrics! Find music videos. Let people know what you’re currently listening to.

Why We Love It: It’s like a bunch of music sites got together and produced a child called TuneWiki. You can watch, listen, and read the lyrics to your favorite song. Hell, purchase it, too, while you’re at it! You can even get the lyrics in another language – 40, to be exact.

3. Pandora

Features: Already a Pandora user? You know how useful it is to have it on your iPhone. Not a Pandora user? Find new and unique songs you’d probably never find with the help of Pandora. By employing the Music Genome Project, you can find music similar to yours. Don’t like a song Pandora chose for you? Unlike it, they wont play a similar song like that again.

Why We Love It: Who doesn’t love Pandora? I can thank them easily for opening my music taste up to so much more. Plus, you can purchase music right then and there through them. Nifty!

4. Shazam

Features: Listening to an awesome song on the radio but don’t know what it’s called? Whip out Shazam! It’ll analyze and tag the music for you. Wanna buy it then and there? Not a problem. You can even watch the video after you’ve tagged it.

Library: If Pandora brought my half of my music library, Shazam brought the other half. So far, Shazam has tagged every single song I’ve put in front of it, including foreign music.

5. Touch Chords

Features: Finishing the list is the app that helps people become amateur Jimi Hendrixes. Practice your guitar skills on a 1:1 fretboard. Have a virtual hand guide you through the songs. Learn about four different sequences. A MUST have app for anyone interested in learning the guitar.

Why We Love It: Learning to play a guitar may possibly be one of the hardest things to do, comparable to learning quantum physics and fixing the economy. Any help – and that too, being visual, goes a long way in perfecting and fine tuning your guitar playing skills.
