Our irregular threat to launch an app to help discover all the music-discovery apps may just have to become a reality. Another one for the App Store pile-up today is Musaic, a free iPhone app that “lets you share and discover music with your friends for free”.
The app ties into Facebook’s social graph, helps people follow “featured curators”, create playlists (or “jams”) with their friends, and connect their Spotify, Rdio and SoundCloud accounts to stream full tracks.
The app has a clean design and a colourful logo, but its founder may be just as important to its chances of making an impact. Musaic has been launched by Scott Vener, who may be most familiar from his role as music supervisor for HBO’s ‘Entourage’ and other TV shows.
He also worked as lead music editor and curator on Myspace’s recent relaunch, having previously been feted by Spotify CEO Daniel Ek for his playlists on his service.
