Music Apps of iPad: Spotify, Shazam, Stitcher, iHeartRadio
Today we look at the music apps of iPad. These are some great ways for you to get music to your iPad other than iTunes.
iHeartRadio is a great way to get your radio stations when you are not in the vicinity of the signal. iHeartRadio connects to your Facebook, and you can program your own radio station, so you get exactly what you want for music. iHeartRadio is a Clear Channel company, with over 800 stations coast to coast. So if you are in Houston, you can still listen to your home station in Wisconsin.
iHeartRadio is an app for iPhone and iPad. You can also get the app for Android, Blackberry, XBox, and Windows phone.
Stitcher Internet Radio is an app for not only podcasters, but also live radio stations. Stitcher just upgraded their app to bring a social aspect to their site. You can connect to Facebook and find out what your friends are listening to. Of course, you can also set your favorite shows, so you can go from one show to the next.
Stitcher is available for iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and WebOS.
The hit music service that came from the UK this last year finally gets an iPad app. Spotify is a music service that works on PC, iPhone, or iPad. You can listen for free (limited), or with a subscription. Connect up to Facebook so everyone knows what you are listening to.
You might not think of this as a music service, but with Shazam, you can not only find out who the artist is, you can get their music for your collection. Watch the tag stream to find out what songs are popular. Or just see who is tagging what.
With recommendations, you could find some new music by your favorite artists. Shazam is also available for Android, Nokia, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7.
