SoundTracking Android app boasts Spotify and Rdio integration

by Marty Gabel

Already a hit on iOS devices, the official SoundTracking app has finally hit Android devices.

Back in March, Appolicious Advisor Dan Kricke gave the iOS app a five-star review, citing it as his “new go-to music app” and praising its “brilliant combination of music-detection software and social media chops.”

In a nutshell, SoundTracking is all about sharing the music you’re listening to with friends. It identifies the tune you’re hearing and shares an audio snippet (alongside an image and your location) on social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare. So whether you’re at a party or even strolling along the beach alone, you can easily share your favorite tunes and let others share the moment with you.

The Android version of SoundTracking actually goes one step further than the iOS one. Because it integrates so tightly with both Rdio and Spotify, instead of just limiting your followers to a mere 30 second sample of the music in question, it’ll allow you to share an entire track — definitely a bonus and a whole lot more fun.

According to TechCrunch, Steve Jang founder of SoundTracking said, “We don’t want to decide what music consumption service they should use. We would like to be able to offer a choice.” He’s hoping to provide users of the app a more seamless experience when sharing their music and mood, and he’s hopeful that iOS users of SoundTracking will also see the Rdio and Spotify integration one day, instead of just the Apple iTunes sharing they currently see.

Here’s Jang discussing the Android app and its advanced features at the LeWeb 2011 conference in Paris yesterday:

The app is free to download, so why not give it a shot and discover a new way to share your mood via the power of music.
