That sounds worrying, right? But new iPhone app LoKast isn’t letting people share actual music files between their handsets. Instead, it lets people browse each others’ iTunes libraries and download 30-second clips, before tapping through to the iTunes Store to buy the songs. It also supports photos, videos and contacts. LoKast has already struck marketing deals with several music firms, including The Orchard, IODA and Monalis 360, to get exclusive music content for the app’s users. Worth keeping an eye on, although as ever with this kind of app, it’ll only be useful if it gets to a big base of users quickly. Source: TechCrunch
