iOS: Soundtracking combines the best aspects of a music tagging service, music discovery app, and music sharing all into one unique tool. The app allows you to tag a song that you're listening to, compose a status update around it, and then post the song, what you're doing, and even a sample of it for your friends to hear.The last time we looked at music tagging apps, we put Soundhound and Shazam together in the Battle of the Mobile Song ID Services and watched them battle it out. Here comes a new challenger: Soundtracking, a new iOS app, allows you to tag music that you're listening to on your device as well as a song you may hear at a store or coffee shop while you're out and about.
Once it's tagged, you can save the song and return to it later, or you can share it with the world. This is where Soundtracking really excels. With Pandora, for example, there's no way to tell the world that you stumbled onto a really great track. Soundtracking lets you use the tagged song as the basis for a new post to Twitter, complete with a link where your friends can preview the song themselves.
If you don't do Twitter, you can still post to your Soundtracking account (completely free), and connect with other music lovers using the service. If you want, you can also include where you were when you heard the song, which is then included in the post or tweet. The app also integrates directly with iTunes for quick song purchases if you find something you like, and allows you to see at a glance what your friends are listening to. Soundtracking is free and available now in the iTunes App Store.
