Rumoured, leaked, and finally released, Twitter #music is now available for download.
It's pretty, has a stupid #name, and is pretty. I mention pretty twice, because while the interface is "gorgeous" — to use a term frequent in iOS app parlance — I don't really see the point of this app, other than looking great.
Unless you key in your Spotify or iTunes account details, this app will simply play music samples from the iTunes store within an amazing interface. If you want to know what the Twitter hive mind likes listening to, or you're a fan of trashy pop and/or Taylor Swift, then you could see some use.
Otherwise, install it, marvel at the UI/UX, and head back to your regular music app/service.
A redesigned LinkedIn app appeared for iOS and Android users this week.
The features of the app are much the same as before, but it now looks like a modern app that is hungry to sync contact data and get a look at your address book.
I recommend looking at the permissions tab on the Google Play store to see exactly how hungry this app is for your personal information. Remember, it's been under a year since this little incident happened — are you sure you want to hand over your personal details?
