I want to see more apps like Yap Music!
I started using this app after enjoying the favorites news feed feature of Yap TV. Yap Music helps me to see social network posts from my favorite artists without having that information added to my already out of control Facebook feed.
There are some bugs. Yap Music's news feed takes several tries for me to actually be able to load it. It will say "loading" but then show up as blank. If I keep trying, it eventually works.
There were also a few days recently where new posts were not showing up (after I managed to get the feed to load), but it is working again now.
This app is fairly well done. I really like the song sample integration across the top of the app that changes with the artist as you scroll. It's a great way to discover new music and sample it while staying in the app. Just in my first few hours of using it I have discovered a handful of new electronic music artists that I hadn't heard of before and purchased their albums.
Don't be put off by the rather amateur-ish app icon. This app is robust and certainly worthy of your time.
Would love to see an iPad version.
