"If u love music & u have an iPad check out new app Discovr -very cool way to find new music" — Tony Robbins

This version updates the design to support the latest OS design patterns and the full range of iPhone & iPad screen sizes. You'll also see some much requested features like full-size high quality artist images and the new artist detail layouts.

The app includes a full music player as well as a mini player you can access anywhere in the app. You can play 30 second sample clips or buy your favorite songs and albums directly the iTunes store. You can also play full length music videos from Youtube.

This updated version of the app makes use of new and additional data sources to improve the broad music coverage in the app. The app now covers a lot more artists (around 2 million artists and bands) and includes many newer artists that the old version did not support. From super rare tracks to major hits, you'll find artists, bands, songs, and albums, across thousands of music genres from ultra underground new electronic genres to Norwegian black metal, golden era hip hop, deep indie experiments, pop, country, world, folk, classical, and more.

The app has also undergone some big code changes behind the scenes to keep the app up to date with the latest technology changes and security requirements from Apple. The main benefit of these changes is that the app is more efficient and secure, supports bigger music maps, is easier to maintain, and works well across all devices.

In addition to making maps of similar artists, you can now also make maps of related songs :) You can create a song map by starting with a search for a song instead of an artist, or you can view an artist's profile and then start a map from one of their songs. Note: related songs are determined based on related songs that users also listen to (rather than songs that just sound exactly the same).

You can save your favorite artists for easy access later. Note: favorites that you might have saved in previous versions of the app will not appear in this new version (the new code is a major update and favorites could not be transitioned across).

You can share maps, songs, and artists straight to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Email, Messages, and more. Just tap the (...) button on a map, song, or artist to share.

This is a big update, with many changes in design, code, and data sources. If you experience an issue please get in touch so I can fix it for you :)

You can report an issue at any time by shaking your device. Data fixes (like missing bands or incorrect band info) are usually fixed a few hours after being received from users, so send in your issues :)

Neat app


This app is pretty cool, and helpful for discovering new music.

Great for brand new genres / Predictable for genres you love


I bought this up because of a recommendation from an iBook on the DJ to app. That author felt that this was a fantastic app to start digging in and learning about new artists. If you are brand new to a genre, then this will absolutely start you off in the right direction. It is also very easy to use, and the functionality whereby you can listen to snippets from the artists works great. That said, if you are a music lover and you already know several genres pretty well, this app probably won't tell you anything you don't already know. It's recommendations are pretty similar to music that you would see coming up in a Pandora station. If I could improve the app, especially if it is a "pay for" app, I would work harder to try to recommend brand new artists that relate to any of the artists punched into the search box. Also, it doesn't appear that the recommendations get updated, so I generally only use the app if I become interested in a brand new genre of music. I definitely look forward to what this app may have in store in the future.



Okay, let me explain something. I am a lazy music listener. I listen to whatever is on the radio, and while I'm usually dissatisfied with the variety, I never really knew what to do about it. Unlike other kids who were willing to put in the legwork to "find" awesome music through the Internet or flipping through albums at a store, I never did that. I never make playlists or "mixed tapes" because it seriously sounds like an impossible task to me.

So I have eagerly tried things like pandora, last fm, apple genius - things supposed to help you find more music you like, but you either have to put in a lot of time (not happening) or they just don't work that well. So I got this app, not expecting much, and I was AMAZED.

Not only did this app help me immediately find new music in the style I like, but it also taught me about my own musical tastes by showing how some of my favorite bands are interconnected.
