So here are my favorites I thought I should share with ya:
This app is without a doubt my favorite. I recently found it when I got my new iPhone (ooh la la) and I'm pretty obsessed with it.
What it does: Shows you a chronological list of bands playing in your area...even in small clubs/bars and especially for small/unknown bands.
The best thing about it in my opinion is it gives you a little sample of the band's music if you wanna hear what they sound like. It also instantly gives you a place to find them on Twitter and Facebook and where to buy tickets.
To be honest I feel like the people who created this app stole it from the depths of my mind (lawsuit is still pending, since I don't really know what the copyright infringement laws are in Inception).
What it does: Instagram + iTunes = Soundtracking
At one time or another I'm pretty sure we have all felt like a song perfectly captured a moment in time or maybe just a hilarious picture. This app allows you to take a picture, or use one you already have, set a song to it, and then share it with either your followers on the app or on twitter. You can also use it to identify songs that are playing around you.
#3 Hype Machine
I could describe, but isn't it obvious? As my favorite new music source, Hype Machine in app form is a necessity. Aggregating music blogs for your listening pleasure, HypeM gives you all the new tunes featured on some of the best music blogs around. But if you wanna just go to the website on your phone instead of paying 4 bucks for the app... I understand.
What it does: Pluck it, change it, tune it, play it.
For the actual musicians out there (myself obviously excluded), it is always convenient to have a handy dandy tuner so you Of course most musicians can just do that by ear, but if you're like me and only pick up your ukulele when your boyfriend comes around so you look more creative and/or musically talented, then you definitely need some help.
