At this moment in time, if someone asked you what the soundtrack of your life was, what would you tell him or her? Whether you like jazz or house music, sometimes certain songs come to mind during different times in our lives, and reminds us of a person or an event.
Concept and Functionality:
Snippit is a platform that allows you to choose from all of the music available in the iTunes store, as well as your music, and upload them to your profile.
Though you can do whatever you want with the sound clip you’ve chosen, whether you want to add a photo or add tags, the main part about Snippit is that you must have music.
When you first choose to upload a song (by clicking the round music note icon at the bottom), you’re given the iTunes library to choose from, as well as your own music. With the iTunes selections, however, you can only take a snippet from the 30-second sample.
Once you have selected your song, you can take a four to 10 second chunk out of it, and go back and forth previewing which part of the song you like best. Then, you can move on, add a description, some tags and scroll to the bottom to add a photo. It’s a very simple process, and one that’s pretty enjoyable.
Like any app or social network, with Snippit, you can follow others and like or comment on the song clips that they put on their feed.
In addition to being able to express yourself in this unique way with Snippit, there are some pretty cool features that the app lets you take advantage of. When you’re browsing through the song selections in the iTunes store list, if you find or hear a song that you really like, you can download it right then and there.
And if you want to find more song clips from users other than Snipverse (the account that comes up on everyone’s feeds), you can visit the “Explore” tab, where you can look through a variety of musical genres including classical, country, reggae and more. You can also sort by hashtag, and then filter based on how recent a post is or how popular it is.
At first, the interface for Snippit can be a little confusing. It took me a couple of tries to figure out that you need to scroll to the bottom of the screen you’re on before you post your clip. Regardless, Snippit is an app that could be good for everyone, since music and photos are very universal mediums to express oneself. The community is very positive and already covers the whole music spectrum, thanks to the variety of tastes out there.
I can see Snippit becoming wildly popular soon. Music and photo apps tend to do very well, even with all of the competition out there. Combining music clips with photos makes Snippit a great app that everyone should check out.
Snippit requires iOS 6.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
