iShareTunes Puts the “Play” in Playing Music

Amidst Industry Upheaval, a Free iPhone App Offers a Playful Way to Find and Share Music

  • Play music for friends via Twitter, Facebook, SMS and email

Servo Software Inc logoSAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clemson University senior Chris Beauchamp is launching iShareTunes 2.0, a quick and easy music sharing app for iPhone and iPad where you can share and play music with friends. Messages, badges and ranks add to the playful feeling of the app.

“Music is personal, but also social. We want to make playing music for your friends the most enjoyable way to discover music for yourself”

“Music is personal, but also social. We want to make playing music for your friends the most enjoyable way to discover music for yourself,” said Beauchamp, author of iShareTunes.

Apple, Google and Facebook are all validating a shift towards mobile, social and streaming music. Digital Rights Management is being abandoned in favor of all-you-can-eat music. In this world, the challenge shifts from buying music to sharing, discovering and enjoying music. Some exciting new players in this space include:

  • Rdio – a streaming and sharing service
  • Pandora – the music genome
  • Blip.fm – Twitter for music
  • 8Tracks.com – streaming playlists

iShareTunes 2.0 adds to this conversation by proposing that a more “playful” social approach can make sharing and discovering music more fun. iShareTunes is offered today for free download due to sponsorship by Servo Software, Inc.
