Shuffler.fm, a Flipboard-style music magazine for the iPad but with free songs

Shuffler.fmEn App Store
Shuffler.fm is born from applying the Flipboard model to the world of music and adding one more point: the possibility of listening to songs completely free of charge from there while reading about the musicians that sound.

What Shuffler does is what was once the fashionable Hype Machine: collecting all the music that is linked in the blogs from all over the world so that it can be listened to from one place. In fact, this is how their website works, but it is in the translation to the iPad where it shines: with more than 1,000 new songs added every day it becomes the perfect radio to discover new things… and that you can read.

The application is able to differentiate the songs it includes by style thanks to the Last.fm API, so that makes it more convenient if you want to play it safe and look for something you like.

In addition, it supports Airplay to send the music to other speakers and scrobbles the songs for Last.fm , something that many people find almost essential and which, by the way, would be a good option to incorporate into the iOS native music player. Also included is the now customary ability to send the songs to Twitter, Facebook, or via email.

Finally, the iPad version of Shuffler.fm incorporates the possibility of marking our favourite songs from among all those we listen to, so that later we can also consult them from its website and go deeper into these groups.
