Late last year, music browser plug-in startup ExtensionFM rebranded as exfm, with a service that lets people browse music on websites while sharing details of their favourite tracks with friends (Bulletin, 3-Dec-10). Now there’s an app for that. Exfm for iPhone launched this morning, promising ‘an endless feed of the best music on the web wherever you go’. So, users can listen to music, ‘note’ the tracks that they like, and share details to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. The app also lets people play locally-stored tracks from their iPod library, and scrobbles the details to Last.fm while they listen. There are also tap-through links to buy tracks they don’t own on the iTunes Store. File this alongside Hype Machine’s recent app as a blog-fuelled discovery app for iPhone-owning music fans.
