Groovebug.com – Personalized Music Magazine
If you think that Flipboard is pretty cool, then you’d be delighted to sample this new service. Groovebug is an iPad application that can assemble an interactive music magazine for you. Powered by The Echo Nest, YouTube, and an aggregation engine of its very own, Groovebug can go through your iTunes library in order to create a magazine which is 100 % tailored to your tastes.
The pages of this magazine can be flipped back and forth like the pages of any publication that has been created using Flipboard, and embedded videos can be played simply by tapping on them.
Appealing as this service is, it still has got quite a long way to go. It shouldn’t be that hard not just to gather together the content that you like, but also to suggest new artists and songs you could enjoy. I mean, the application has unhindered access to your iTunes music collection.
But I don’t want to end this post on a negative note. Grooveshark is one of the most promising music-related startups I’ve seen as of late, and I definitely encourage you to give it a try. You can download it for free here.
