iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Music is a great way of expressing yourself, and doing so on social media just got a lot easier with a new app called Snippit. Essentially, the app lets you upload photos and share them to followers much like Instagram and other photo-sharing apps, but also gives you the option of attaching a 4-10 second song clip for truly showing the world the meaning of that moment.

The app allows you to upload an unlimited number of photos, much like its competitors, and lets you seamlessly share these posts on both Twitter and Facebook. In addition, the photo app can be used standalone, letting you fin and follow friends directly. In the latest version of the app you'll find larger photo sizes, as well as the ability to use iTunes 30-second previews to make your 'snippit.'

You can get Snippit on the App Store for free.

Caktus is a New Social Music Listening Experience for the iPhone

Posted by Stephen Hall on March 10th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Countless social networks hit the App Store all the time, but it's not every day that you see a new app completely dedicated to making your music-listening experience a little more social and fun. Caktus, a new app from Caktus Media, was announced at SXSW in Austin, Texas last weekend, and it aims to do just that.

Caktus really, really wants you to listen to the music on your iOS device through their app rather than Apple's standard Music.app. Why? Because Caktus wants to share everything you're listening to with your friends in real-time. In return, if you have friends who also use Caktus, you'll be able to see what they're listening to as well. The app also lets you see what music is being played among those physically near you, as well as see what music is trending amongst your friends.

You can grab Caktus on the App Store for free right now.
