Whyd’s song bookmarking app is Pinterest for music lovers


Are you running short of inspiration when it comes to new music to listen to? Whyd may be able to help.

The popular music bookmarking tool has just made the leap from desktop to mobile, with the launch of its official iOS app. Giving you the key to a community of music curators interested in sharing and discovering the best music around, Whyd lets users collect the songs they like from virtually any music service (YouTube, Soundcloud, Vimeo, and Deezer, to name a few), organize it into playlists, and then connect with thousands of other music lovers with similar (and complementary) tastes.

It’s basically Pinterest for music, and well worth a download if you’re looking for a great, cleanly designed source of new non-algorithmic music suggestions.

Nicknamed “Everyone’s music playlist,” Whyd can be downloaded from the App Store, available for all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 and above.
