Seedio - App Review

Party time!

No decent audio speakers (or interface to your iOS device)?

No problem... use Seedio.

Now for the ACIDS test:

To appreciate how this works, you'll actually need at least 2 iOS devices, one will be the 'Seed' and the other(s) will 'Receive'.

First set up your 'Seed' by toggling the switch at the top right of the display. Next step is to add music, done by touching the button and then adding from music, YouTube, history (obviously not the first time). Once you've done that, you can hit the icon at the bottom and start sharing.

The 'Receive' devices will see the 'Seed' and will display the track playing, as well as allowing you direct access to iTunes to purchase the song, and, most importantly, you can hear the track.

The beauty of this is that you can get some decent volume just with a number of iOS devices; great fun.

The free version allows you to receive unlimited songs but only broadcast for 10 minutes per hour. The App costs $1, and you can add additional sources (SoundCloud, URL Support) as in App purchases.

If there's a bunch of you, this is great fun.

It seems that many songs cannot be added due to 'DRM, iCloud, or audio format issues'. This is a great shame as it really detracts from the usefulness of the App.

The potential breach of DRM (Digital Rights Management) rules seem to be covered (over enthusiastically) by the App.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Decent volume without additional outlay.
