Free music! – Review of Playlist.com

   Posted by: techiecat   in Review

Isn’t it nice that you share your favorite songs with the friends who visit your web site? Isn’t it nicer that you can get the songs for free? There are quite a lot music sharing apps on the web, but playlist.com makes this easy and free for you. They automatically collect the songs published on the web and pack them in a nice interface. All you have to do is to

  • register an account,
  • search for your favorite songs and add to a playlist,
  • then publish the playlist anywhere you like

You can start by listening to my playlist at the sidebar and trying to add songs to your playlist.

Note: the playlist widget does not work on a Fedora + Firefox platform (that’s why I remove it from my sidebar finally). I did not test other unix/linux platform. If you have such experience, you are welcome to leave a comment here.

Then, I have to click the News & Media column again and scroll down to the the last unread news. You may ask “why not open it in a new tab?” Well, it can’t because it is coded by flash and does not provide this interface.
