Hitting the app store comes Mixcloud, an app that enables users to stream their favorite Podcasts (or Cloudcasts as is more appropriate for the service), DJ Mix sets and radio shows directly to their iOS device. It’s an on demand service with a fair amount of choice of Cloudcasts.
For the uninformed, Cloudcasts are extended audio shows that are hosted in the ‘cloud’ meaning that there’s no waiting for things to download like podcasts.
Anyone can create an account and upload their content so it’s a great service for those users who want to get their work out there, as well as a fun app for people who just love hearing good music or radio shows.
Currently, there are loads of categories on offer covering all types of music taste as well as talk categories ranging from business and education to news, politics and comedy. Just looking through the Mixcloud website, it’s clear that there’s something for everyone.
Mixcloud looks set to be a great way of checking out new material without needing to plan ahead like with podcasts.
Check out the video below to learn more about just how it works.
Mixcloud is available now for all iOS devices and it’s a free download.
