"Make me a mixtape that makes me yours"

Reviewed by / Oct 14, 2013

The best way yet to discover and enjoy new music - for any time, taste, or place

Everyone knows the feeling of struggling to find the appropriate soundtrack for the moment, whether it's for at the office or at the beach, for working out or making out. Sometimes your worn out personal music library just doesn't cut it anymore, and you're in desperate need of some fresh beats. The popular Pandora is one solution, but it's not available internationally, and the library of artists is limited. Enter 8tracks, the mixtape sharing method that's shortly to become your favorite way of listening to music.

Filter through over 1 million user-generated playlists by artist, tags, or keywords. This can be as concrete as "Devendra Banhart" or "free jazz," or you can find appropriate lists for your mood and activity with searches as abstract as "staring at the ceiling," "autumn morning," and/or "whiskey." If you want music to match it, chances are great that someone else has put together a playlist, which other users can rank and comment upon. You can also take your own spin as a DJ and upload personalized playlists for others to enjoy.

Save your favorite lists to your profile for quick access later. 8tracks will also analyze your taste and recommend related lists accordingly. You can follow specific users if you find super talented mix artists, and you can also save your favorite individual tracks to a list that links to playable YouTube/SoundCloud clips.

8tracks is set up to be a 100% legal way for you to listen to music whenever, wherever. It's also completely devoid of ads and totally free to use. The navigation is intuitive and clean, and it quietly (or loudly, if you crank up the volume!) runs in the background of your device. The only caveat has to do with data streaming - you may want to ensure you've got a wi-fi signal, or else you'll insidiously chew away at your data plan as you groove.

I couldn't recommend 8tracks any more strongly - these days, it's almost exclusively what I use to listen to music. I have no doubt you'll find yourself quickly addicted as well.

    It can't play one whole song without crashing after the update. It's a nightmare. The ads have also become really obnoxious.

    Crashes too much to even listen to music, widget crashes, server crashes, did u forget to mention the app crashes over all? Looks like I'm going to need to downgrade until these Shannanagins are fixed.

    I guess it works okay after the update, but now, a few songs in, the first few seconds will repeat before heading into the actual song. Very strange and annoying.

    Unfortunately this app USED to work perfectly. The past couple updates have done nothing but create more problems. When songs finally decide to play, it will play the first 10 seconds of the song and then repeat before playing the entire song. But thats only if im lucky. Most of the time, during the middle of a song the app will force itself closed and wont even prompt me to report the crash. EDIT
