Everybody has their favorite bands and musicians that are top priority on their iPods. Still, it's easy to get in a rut listening to the same old music, and therefore, not giving Indie or other artists a chance. Discovr Music solves that conundrum by providing an innovative method of finding new musicians. The app is composed of an interactive map of many bands and artists blended together. Just type in an artist you enjoy, and then you'll see a list of similar ones growing off the original you typed when they have similar styles. What a great way to uncover musicians and music you may come to love! That is what Discovr Music does in a nutshell. It lets you see how music genres and types are connected, thus making it easy to find exciting other bands and artists that are similar to your tastes.

Before I talk about what Discovr offers, let me say it is very cleverly put together as well as a sleek app. When you open the app, you input the name of an artist you presently like. However, you can also use the sliding thumbnails bar at the bottom of your display to see many different artists whose names will be automatically inserted in the Search bar when you tap on them. Once the app has searched that name, it will bring about a wheel diagram with each spoke leading to a similar artist. When you tap on that artist a new wheel opens up with even more bands. It is a never-ending connecting list of musicians that have something in common via their music.

Double tap on the group you want. In my case I tapped on Snow Patrol. Various screens appeared through which I could scroll. First, there is the artist Biography, then Songs of which you may listen to a snippet, buy or share them, watch Videos, read a few interesting, related Blogs, read Reviews and find other Links about this same band. When you play the music snippet, at that point you can either Buy Song, Share on Twitter, Share on Facebook or Share by Email. The same applies to Videos and so forth. You and your friends will be continually finding fresh sounds to enjoy. In this way, I think this app is a bit like Pandora. My favorite function of this app is what I call the blooming flowers where the artists in the circles keeps expanding each time you click on one. Don't miss out on this unique music app. It's a great addition to your music app collection, and very aptly named Discovr.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Discovr Music is a unique music discovery app that lets you expand your music tastes and knowledge."
