I had been seeing a few tweets and recommendations for this app a lot, so I thought I'd check it out. I'm glad I did. It is a great way to discover artists and music. Hype Machine scouts the web for blogs that talk about music. It collates all the tracks into the app and you can listen them right from within the app. One thing that really impressed me about the app.

There's a 'What's New' section and songs are added frequently, so it's always good to keep checking the app. You can check out the most popular tracks that people have been listening to or you can just go ahead and search by genre. Every week, you'll also find a recommended album to buy, too. You can also favorite tracks too and they add your favorites lists so you can play them from there. There is even a blog directory for you to be able to read up more on the artists.

Hype Machine features:

  • LATEST: Music being discussed right now, constantly updated
  • POPULAR: Tracks that are getting the most love on the Hype Machine
  • FAVORITES: Your favorite tracks on the Hype Machine. A simple offline view lets you see your recently played favorites when you are in air or underground
  • FEED: Customized new posts from your favorite blogs, and friends
  • FRIENDS: Music your friends are loving right now
  • GENRES: Newest tracks posted on blogs organized by genre
  • BLOG DIRECTORY: Every blog we track at http://hypem.com/blogs
  • ALBUM PREMIERE: Preview a new album, in full, every week

Definitely an app for music lovers. I have been enjoying the app very much. There are no ads and no monthly fees involved either making this app great value, since it's free. It is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices.

Adam did post on this app on September. I've been using it since. Great music discovery platform and a well done application overall.

I saw this but doubted it would be good. My music tastes tend to be a bit out there and I spend a lot of time hunting for new GOOD music. I may have to give this a try.

Apparently I've gone a little app crazy lately. Read the article, clicked the download link only to find out I've already downloaded the app but haven't got around to using it yet.

I guess I have something to do after the kids are in bed tonight. ;)

Great way to find new music. Once I find something I like I'll throw it into youtube search to find a live performance. I was comparing it to songza the last few weeks and I have say I prefer hype machine. No limits on skips and responsive native interface make it better for new music finding.

Downloaded it. Not bad. Has a few bugs and sometimes lags while it fonda music sources. UI needs some improvement but otherwise not bad.

This app is quickly becoming one of my favourites

It's a great app and great support from the developer, got an email back right away. If I remember correctly I found this app because of crackberry a few weeks ago

I often depends on (Easytune) and side loaded (Sound Cloud).
Anyone think this one is better..!?
Plz advise.

When is there going to be an app that replaces what bbm music could do? Streaming music doesn't work for everyone.

With all these streaming music apps I rarely listen to FM in my car anymore, just Bluetooth now.

Hype machine is a great app. I use this Skooday and tunein radio along with my music library and I'm all set.

epoille

use this app for about a month ! i discovered fantastic remixes in Dance/electro section ! to be honest i use it more than the usual music app ...

btw, with that type of app, i kno why i'm staying on BB10 :)

cheers from France

Oh one thing for the developer : sometimes when nativ music app and hypeMachine are open on my Q10, it crashed the audio part of everything. (not a big problem tho)

beatsandlife

Discovered so many new artists on this app. Thanks Hype machine! Keep those updates coming!

I've been discovering great new music on Hype Machine for the past few years. The experience is even better, now that they've produced this excellent BB10 app.

parthokarki

Iam using skooday, its also free and very convenient.

Hype machine did not have any known popular track when I used it in September.

Skooday has the most happening tracks and dj mixes.

Been side loading it for a while As I had it on my old arc s before.
This runs much better, it's a great way to find different music.

The Search at the top of the side menu? That works for me.
