"Discover trendy music"

Reviewed by / Oct 29, 2014

uberHype is an Android app of the web service "The Hype Machine"

"The Hype Machine" is a web service which try to help users to discover music worth listening to. It keeps track of what music bloggers write about and then present what they discuss for easy analysis, consumption and discovery. uberHype is an Android app that lets you access this service.

First time you launch it, it asks you to sign up or login with your "The Hype Machine" account (in case you already have one). Anyway, you can use the app as a guest, so there's no need to sign up. However, you'll make the most of it if you register. Since then, the app is quite simple: three top tabs that divides music by "Popular" and "Latest". "My Profile" tab is only accessible if you're logged in. From there you can share music, follow users, see the music you liked (your favs), your friends favs, etc. What's more, a bottom bar divides music in three tabs: "songs", "artists" and "twitter". The latter is the selection taken from Twitter. Anyway, you can share full tracks by Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other social networks.

If you're fed up of listening to always the same music, uberHype is a great music discovery tool. Recommendable.

    HypeM just launched the official app for android with a whole lot more functionality (Bluetooth support, lock screen widget, equalizer, button controls) rendering this one obsolete.

    Access to a plethora of really good music. The app itself has a lot of room to improve in terms of functionality but still solid.
