The 8tracks iPhone music app is probably one the best music apps ever made. 8tracks is unique in the world of iPhone music apps as it features music mixes that are submitted by users online and will help you to find and discover new music.
Okay, why is the app named 8tracks. Each online mix on 8tracks Radio lasts for at least 30 minutes, which generally means it has about eight music tracks.
The 8tracks iPhone app and website stream on Internet radio. The app does not depend on algorithms like Pandora; but it makes use of Songza. But there is a sharp difference from Songza, as the playlists are created by anyone using 8tracks, not just musical experts. Songza has music for you for any mood, but you want to listen to new music based on a particular genre you should tune into 8tracks.
Once a mix is selected, the name of the artist and song are displayed at the bottom of the screen. There are options to pause the mix or skip ahead to the next song in a mix.
You can also mark your favorites, share any mix via email or Twitter. The only disadvantage of using 8tracks Radio is the inability to rate each mix. This would be really helpful when you are browsing by artist or genre.
