Hype Machine is a great app that lets you discover new music. It first landed on BlackBerry 10 back in September 2013 and we did a hands-on review of it too. It has just received an update that brings some nice new features to the mix, such as custom fonts and keyboard shortcuts to physical keyboard device owners. A little tweaking has also been made to fully support the BlackBerry Z30.
Hype Machine v18.104.22.168 changelog
- New custom fonts (came with OS 10.2)
- Support for the BlackBerry Z30
- Support for the hardware keys on the device for play/pause
- Some fixes for Built for BlackBerry
Hype Machine isn't a music app I use regularly but I do check it out often to discover new artists. I also love the Album Premiere section where I can see what is available for pre-order. It is a native BlackBerry 10 app so it runs very smoothly and I highly recommend it for music lovers.
Hype Machine is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and is free. If you haven't checked it out yet, download it today.
