"Next" Like Tinder for Music?

Posted by - 12:14 PM on 07/28/14
A new iPhone app called "Next" looks to do for music discovery what Tinder did for dating.
Musicians use Next to record short videos of their music -- anywhere from 10 seconds to 3 minutes. Users then log on and watch 30-second excerpts of the songs, swiping left to dismiss and swiping right to like. If you find an artist you're interested in, you can follow them on the app or tap to share via SMS, email and Twitter.

You say disposable, I say accessible. Surely if there's anything that makes hearing new music you might like easier, then it's a good thing? I don't get why it would make it disposable..

Do you get to choose what types of music you want to hear? If it doesn't have that feature, this would be stupid.

I like this... Hoping that bands see how many people "dismiss" their music too, so they might be motivated to innovate.

I'd also like to see people use this (or another app) to join bands. Record yourself playing/singing, get discovered by a band in need (and stop crowding YouTube with covers intended for such).

Oh no. This is just gonna fuel the ADD of this generation. I hate it when I listen to music with friends and they say it's "lame" after 10 seconds and want to listen to something else. What's so hard with listening to a full song? It's bad enough that people barely listen to full albums anymore.

I don't understand when someone would use this. If I want to hear similar artists to a band, I would just go on Spotify/Pandora/etc. and use their radio function. Why would I want to just hear a snippet and then have to take the extra step of finding the full song?

Also, looking for new music doesn't necessarily seem like something I would do on the go via mobile. I guess I could see the benefit if it catalog's all your likes into a neat list for you to follow up on, but then you'll be walking around listening to a flood of partial songs. That would drive me crazy.

I read about this dating site that would match people based on music tastes, but I'm pretty sure it was a horrible failure. this sounds cool.
