HypedMusic is a brand new app for the iPhone that promises to provide you with access to millions of tracks for free. Just like Spotify or Rdio, music is streamed to your device over the Internet, but there is no subscription fee — and no fee upfront for the app itself. It also offers support for online playlists, social integration, and more.
HypedMusic, at first glance, doesn’t quite seem right — no one gives us access to millions of songs for free, at least not legally. But there’s nothing illegal about about this service, which has been operating online and on Android for two years. Simply download it, search for the track you want to listen to, and enjoy. There are no ads, and there are no limits.
HypedMusic will ask if you want to login to Facebook when you first open it, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. This is a requirement if you want to sync playlists between different devices, but if you’ll only be using the app on your iPhone, you won’t need to worry about that.
You can create as many playlists as you wish, and some of those can even be stored locally, so you can listen to them offline when you have no data connection. HypedMusic also allows you to see songs that are trending, browse full albums, and listen to radio stations. It also promises that more features will be available later on.
I had a little play around with HypedMusic before writing this post, and I’ve been fairly impressed with it. It does have some issues, however. First, not all the music I searched for was available, so this certainly won’t replace a service like Spotify for me. What’s more, some of the tracks I did find didn’t stream too smoothly, or weren’t playable because their file type wasn’t supported.
I did listen to a number of tracks that played just fine, however. I was also pleased with the app itself, which is snappy and stable, and sports a nice, clean interface. I certainly recommend you check it out.
