Ok I am taking a break from introducing bands for a while, and give way to the techie side of my interest. But don’t worry because this is still about music. This time it is about music apps. Yes I love apps and I love technology. I don’t mind if it is iOS or Android because I have used both and each has its own strong and weak points.
I love listening to iTunes radio when I am not perusing my Soundcloud or Mixcloud feed. What I love about it is the experience and how easy it is to find what you are looking for. It even has a Celtic music station which I like because I am a big fan if Celtic music.
The other positive aspect of iTunes radio is how it is a breeze to just add stations based on genre. It is easy to use than Tunein. I tried using Spotify but the issue with that app is how it takes a lot of storage space from your iOs.
As an indie music lover, I still prefer Soundcloud, YouTube and Mixcloud when it comes to discovering new artists. But when you are looking for mainstream music as well as oldies, then iTunes radio will do. You can always stumble upon something exciting and unique using iTunes so I can say that I am hooked on the radio. Right now, 80s alternative is playing Til Tuesday with Voices Carry. One of the best tracks from my childhood. Do you also listen to iTunes radio? Do share your thoughts.
