It’s a social music playlists app that pulls the music from YouTube and SoundCloud – so no licensing, despite the fact that it downloads music to cache on the device for offline listening. The idea is that users can create or join playlists with friends, while voting on tracks. Parties are suggested as a key use case (“the ultimate party experience”). Oh, and the app costs 69p.
