Yesterday was a great day for me because TheFuture.FM released an iPhone app. You see I love DJ mixes and this opened up a whole new world of streaming music. There’s some great full-length mixes here all for free. The app has some great features as well including “Discover” – a place where you can find new mixes by DJs you’ve never heard of before, “Featured” – a place where you can hear new mixes every day, and “Top” – a place to hear the top rated mixes. According to the TheFuture.FM here are some of the reasons you should download this app:
- Save, favorite and follow your favorite DJs in your own radio channel. Easily create playlists and keep track of what you’ve listened to.
- Discover new music using our search engine; a smart search that thinks like a DJ. Just type in something you’re into, and we’ll give you results that match your mood.
- Conveniently browse for music by genre by selecting any of the 40+ genres ranging from minimal house to Dubstep and R & B.
- Browse through suggested mixes in the Featured-section for fresh material from DJs you’ll love.
- Check out the Top-section for quick access to the most loved mixes right now.
- Read about your favorite DJs on their DJ page, where you’ll also find all of their mixes.
There’s a place to keep history in the app as well. Some of my favorites so far include PHRESH – “Day & Night Mix”, Sasha & John Digweed – “Secret Life Mix”, and Doc Martin “Essential Mix”. Unfortunately I couldn’t find my favorite mixes from an organization called “Deep House Cat.” They’ve got a long-running podcast that’s absolutely fantastic.
As for bugs with the app I have had an issue when loading more items in a search. Sometimes the app crashes. Otherwise I love this one and hope to be using it for some time to come.
