WhoSampled launches Android app

By | Published on Tuesday 23 September 2014


Bad news for iPhone owners everywhere, no longer will you be able to gloat about having access to the WhoSampled app, with its top sample, cover and remix tapping approach to music discovery (and, often, rediscovery). No, those Android using twonks are getting it too. And to think, Steve Jobs gave his life to stop shit like this from occurring.

So yes, the WhoSampled app is now available for Android-powered phones from the Google Play store, enabling Android phone users to track what music from the past has influenced and informed the pop tunes of today.

Or, in the words of the official blurb, “the app provides detailed information on songs, including what other songs have sampled them, what artists have covered music from other artists, and what remixes were then made for a track – WhoSampled allows users to explore the musical connections in their own music collection”.

Commenting on the new app, WhoSampled CEO Nadav Poraz told CMU: “It’s great to be going live on Android today, not only because of the breadth of the platform but because it’s something our users have been requesting for a while now. The WhoSampled experience on Android brings even more personalisation to our music discovery path, allowing users to break down the DNA of the music they have stored on their Android devices and discover exciting new music as a result”.
