Playlista: Written & Video iPhone App Review
Ever wanted to allow others to add songs and comments to the party’s playlist? Now you can, with Playlista!
Playlista, from developer Mobappalula (try saying that 5 times fast!) is a new, social music app for parties and other events, on the iPhone.
Simply load up Playlista, then choose either to Host or Join. Hosting allows you to host your own party mix, during which you select your own playlist songs from your iPhone. Make sure your device is plugged into a speaker and connected to either wifi or bluetooth as well. Then, others with the app Playlista can search for your ‘group’, join it, and add songs and comments as they like. Joining allows you to join others Playlista selections and get in on the fun that way. It’s quite easy to figure out and operate. Playlista runs really smoothly on the iPhone, without any obvious hiccups or other problems. I liked how accessible Playlista was, even on the smaller screen of the iPod Touch. Adding music is super easy and the playlist creation extras (comments, etc) are great. Overall, while Playlista may not have loads of features, it handles the virtual jukebox job very nicely.
Graphics are sharp and professional in Playlista. There isn’t a ton to see here, but for an app that is focused on the simple social music experience, that isn’t a bad thing. It’s really easy to browse from the start and setting up a new Playlista playlist is a cinch. There is even a super helpful tutorial included with the app (under the (i) Info button, allowing you to get the app running with ease if you need more help.
Playlista is very simple to use and a blast to rock out to. The whole concept of a virtual social jukebox, in the palm of your hand, is pretty creative. I was glad to see how this concept actually played out in Playlista-the developers have done a great job keeping the app focused on simple, fun, social playlists on the iPhone. If you ever throw parties or host events with music on the iOS, consider picking up the free app Playlista today!
Playlista requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
