Last week we told you about a cool little site called ThisIsMyJam which allows you to pick your “jam” for the week and share it with the world. It is a great way of sharing a song and seeing what your friends are listening to. However, if you want to dig much deeper into music discovery and immerse yourself in a massive multi-player music influence game, then TastermakerX might be for you.
Maybe you’ve noticed a few cryptic tweets or Facebook posts lately along the lines of: “I just bought 150 Shares of Sigur Rós [SGRR] at $18.25. Go long!” Well, what the Hell does it all mean?
TastemakerX is an iOS app that crosses a fantasy sports league with a stock exchange. It allows users to invest “notes” into a portfolio of bands and performers that climb in value as the popularity of your artists increase. Baked into the trading component is social sharing, biographies of bands, news items and the ability to listen to song clips of the bands & purchase tracks via iTunes.
