Music sharing and discovery app for iOS released, offers crowd-sourced recommendations
Musx, a social music platform for iOS, was released today, offering users listening recommendations from friends, artists, blogs, and venues. Aiming to differentiate itself from the latest trend of computer-generated playlists, Musx features an emphasis on the social element of music listening, providing the ability to play, share, and queue desired songs, and follow friends and other music sources to see what songs others are sharing. Musx pulls music content from YouTube, with its search function allowing users to search uploaded songs on YouTube, as well as friends' suggestions. Musx requires iOS 7.0, and is free to download through iTunes.
