I kind of sort of have an addiction when it comes to music apps. It seems no matter how many I try out, there's no one single app that covers all my music needs. Instead, I find myself using several different apps such as Slacker Radio, 8Tracks, Songza, Skooday, Nobex and Deezer. A new entrant to that list though is called Easytune, which offers free, unlimited streaming music for all currently available BlackBerry 10 devices.
The app itself started off a little rough but has since transitioned into what appears to be a native app and added a bunch of great features such as social sharing through Twitter and Facebook, playlists, easy album search and even account creation, so that you can keep all your stuff organized. It seems as though the app is using an API to some backend music service and thus far, it's been running perfectly fine for me.
What that service may be though, I'm not too sure. In any case, it's a great app for music fans that's available as a free download. You can't really beat that. I do have to note though, you cannot download songs via this app so those of you on limited data plans, this might not be the ideal app for you as it will always need to be streaming over the network
At the hockey arena
Arrived at a hockey area for free skating which is offered each weekday from 5-6pm. Most people who go are probably not full time workers, live in the neighborhood or are little kids brought by their parents. I arrive at 5:30 and everyone's already on the ice skating to the music having a good time. I go sit in the stands and lace up my skates. A few moments later a young woman..mid 20-late 20s max with a designer purse, a Blackberry and one of those Bluetooth earpieces sits down in the same row, closest to the aisle.
She really looked out of place, looking so chic
