Once upon a time, the mixtape was the most romantic thing that anyone could ever do for me. While the cassette tape gave way to the CD, both offering ways of providing mixes, the digital era didn't really leave any room for romance. Unless of course, the romantic person decides to use something like Dragontape.
Dragontape is an universal app that lets its users create up to 3 hours long mixtapes of their favorite YouTube and Soundcloud clips. They can rearrange the clips however they want, edit and crossfade (in the case of Soundcloud). It's all done via the app and a Dragontape.com account that's quick and simple to get set up, then the only restriction is a person's imagination.
It's an easy app to use with editing only ever requiring one tap of a finger. Switching from track to track is simply a matter of swiping across the screen so it's easy to skip tracks if need be. Users can share their creations with whoever they want via Twitter, Facebook, e-mail and the Dragontape website. Socially minded people can also browse other creations for some inspiration. There's also the potential to collaborate with friends which could provide a great learning tool too for something like a group project.
The potential overall really is pretty great. At its simplest, users can use Dragontape to set up a mixtape of their favorite workout music. There's also the romantic element of creating a mix of tracks for someone they love. Or people could use it to simply create a montage of videos of a beloved pet, or a concert they attended.
Dragontape is available now for all iOS devices. It's currently free but there are suggestions on the app page that it's free while in beta with a possible pricetag added in the future. So best get downloading now.
