8tracks lets you listen to user-made songs on your iPhone, iPad or Ipod touch and either buy or share them with friends.
Remember the days before MP3 players, where people would make mix tapes or CDs when they wanted some variety in their musical lives? 8tracks brings back the memories with a simple but addictive idea that lets users create their own playlists and share with others.
Similar to Last.fm and Pandora Radio, 8tracks lets you create a profile and search for playlists based on genre or what's popular by week or month. Then just plug in your headphones and enjoy. If you like what you're listening to, 8tracks lets you purchase individual songs or share playlists on your mobile device.
8tracks for your mobile device is a great compliment to the online version too, where you can comment on other users' profiles and upload your own playlists for others to enjoy.
8tracks is a great way to find new music and just generally rock out on the go.
