Free Mixcloud app hits the store
The guys at Mixcloud were present at BPM in Birmingham a couple of years back, since then their presence grew online providing a decent method of uploading and sharing mixes among peers and potential promoters.
Since then, there have been a number of competing websites set up offering more functionality, download capabilities and mobile access.
Until now, content on Mixcloud is streamed through a flash player...I was hoping that in time they'd move to a similar setup to Soundcloud which allows non-flash playback but only if you're directly on their site (ie not through embedded players).
Anyway, the new app is a welcome addition and should get mixes more widely heard...which can only be a good thing!
Currently the app is free and compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (although not universal for the iPad). Requires iOS 3.0 or later
I've just grabbed it on my iPad. In order to use it, you need a Mixcloud account (free and easy to set up). There are in app ads which appear at the bottom, but I guess they may disappear over time as the app becomes priced? I'm on there btw, just search for DJ Hombre !
