TuneStars: A Canadian Built Social Music App

A new app created by a Montreal-based company has appeared in iTunes. TuneStars purports to the solve the problem of following your favourite artists across all kinds of different platforms. Its creators describe it as ” a social network for music lovers, allowing fans, artists, and the industry to connect with each other, play songs, videos, build playlists, and connect with people who like the same music. Follow your favourite artists and see everything they post on all the top social media platforms, all in one place.”

So it’s an aggregator, a place that pulls in content from all sorts of online sources from artists, labels, other areas of the music industry and other fans so you can view everything in a single location. That material can then be shared easily–which, theoretically, will also allow users to discover new material. And if you’re an artist, you can upload your stuff and share it within the TuneStars network you create.
