We arched an eyebrow in studied approval of Pocket Hipster a few months ago – a music recommendation app for iPhone that sprang from a partnership between We Are Hunted and The Echo Nest. Now they’re at it again with a new app called Music Hunter. Released on the App Store today for Apple’s iPad, the app costs £1.19 to download, and has been developed by We Are Hunted with Australian creative agency Josephmark. The Echo Nest provides the recommendation engine, and UK firm 7digital provides song samples. The app prompts you to choose a genre and mood/tempo when opened, and then serves up a swipable and tappable grid of songs to play. Favourite tracks can be saved, and the app ties into Apple’s iTunes Store to buy tracks directly. There are also social features to share details of tracks on Twitter and Facebook.
