SoundShare is a new iPhone app that makes it very easy to share songs you enjoy with your friends, start conversations around them and peek in on what your friends are listening to in an unobtrusive way that encourages conversation.
Music discovery apps and services aren’t too difficult to come by, but SoundShare is a little different. Once you’re signed up and you have the app installed, SoundShare lets you play songs in your music library and go about your business knowing that the app is keeping track of the songs you’re listening to. If you hear something really like, you can post it to Twitter and Facebook. You can also explore other users’ music streams, leave a comment or add them to your friends list. If someone’s listening to something you might like, you can tap the song to preview it yourself.
SoundShare is a standalone social network. While you can post your songs to Twitter and Facebook, it’s not automatic or required. The app reminds us a bit of Rexly, only with more focus on sharing a running list of songs you enjoy with friends. SoundShare is free, and available now in the iTunes App Store.
