Do you enjoy music? Want to share and discover more of it online? Then Swizzle might be the app/service for you.
Swizzle is a music based social network where users can share, discover, and upload music online. In addition to the app, there is a corresponding website users can log into to access their music. Users will use Facebook to log into the service.
The app is universal but looks best on an iPhone or iTouch. When a user logs in he will see three options: Recent, Popular, and Featured. He can use these tabs to search for music in those areas. Right now you can find a lot of foreign music in these areas. I am not big into music so I did not recognize any of the artists.
From the top menu, you can access another set of tabs: Home, My Swizzlist, My Likes, and Search. It is here where I spent most of my time. I think most of these tabs are self explanatory.
When you search and find a song you like, you can “like” the song but you can also create a list (Swizzlist) and add it to that list, so next time you are on you can quickly retrieve it. Any list you make you can have it be public or private. The Swizzlist is the key feature (IMHO) of the app. Creating and sharing list is what the app/service is all about.
In addition to finding songs and lists online, you can add you own music. I am curious about the legality of this all and music sharing but overall the app works well and is a neat concept.
I did searching for a variety of different types of music such as Frank Sinatra, Talking Heads, Ok Go, to name a few and was impressed with the results. There is a lot of music to find via Swizzle.
Overall this app/service works well and is easy to use. I think music lovers will appreciate the app. I need to mention that you can watch music videos too!
