Songdrop Logo

British music discovery startup Songdrop has launched its first iPhone app. It’s a free download from Apple’s App Store, and enables users of the service to “take your Songdrop playlists on the go! Listen to music from around the internet and watch music videos from your iPhone”. Songdrop first came to our notice in 2012 when the company pitched at the EMI Innovation Challenge and TechPitch 4.5 events in the UK. It then raised £100k of seed funding in March this year, with the promise that it’d be used partly to develop the company’s first mobile app (Bulletin, 4-Mar-13). In both web and mobile forms, Songdrop is based around playlists created by ‘dropping’ songs from a variety of sources: YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Tumblr and music blogs. People can use its Chrome browser extension to easily add songs, or simply use the website. We’re guessing from the App Store description that for now, the iPhone app is about listening rather than creating playlists.
