Originally a Chrome extension for on-the-fly music discovery, organizing and sharing, exfm, now has a free mobile client for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. exfm for iOS, like the extension, allows you to discover and listen to new songs, favorite (“Note”) or buy the ones you like, share them with your friends over Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr or queue them up into a playlist and listen to them in one go, follow what your friends are listening to or browse through the Tastemakers feed, a randomly generated timeline of songs Noted by other exfm users. And that’s not all. Join us after the break for more.
The app integrates iPod controls with the Now Playing screen, allowing you to listen to and share all music stored on your device. Songs being streamed can be shared, noted, and bought from the same screen. You can even connect with your Last.fm to scrobble all played music to your Last.fm profile. The interface is quite well-crafted. It’s both easy on the eyes and efficient in usage. A brief first-launch guide walks you through the app’s major features. It is recommended that you take a couple of minutes to go through said guide, especially if you’re new to exfm.
Extension Entertainment has done well to step into the iTunes App Store. The app is a excellent addition to the store, especially for music fanatics who happen to own an iPod Touch.
