Happy Friday everyone. So, let's talk about music. Aside from my personal favourite (Spotify, you are so addictive), I've been trying out different music players and apps, especially when it comes to mixes. I've been a huge fan of mixing since the tape-trading age, and let's face it, despite all of its updates, the Soundcloud app is not the handiest - sorry guys.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Songdrop. Not to be confused with Spotify's Soundrop, this lil' friend is the new stylish way to create your mixes. The aim is to collect music from YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp and Vimeo all in one place for free. It doesn't sound too bad, does it?

You can search YouTube and Soundcloud from the app, so be sure to stock it up with as many twerking videos as you can. The real highlight, is the possibility to create playlists with videos and songs, without being constricted to rely on solely one platform - yes bloggers, I am talking to you. Whilst the app allows you to share on Facebook, the desktop versions allows you to create a widget of your mixes - making the whole experience really useful.

Much like the best social music platforms out there, you can personalise your profile, follow other users, listen to their mixes, and drop away with a swipe. Songdrop is basically cool tape-trading in a nutshell. The only downside is that, as the app itself is still pretty much new, there are not many active droppers, so its discovery function is still limited.

If you are in desperate need of a pretty app to show off on Friday pub night, Songdrop will soon make its way to the main dock. Let's face it, practical music apps are good, but pretty music apps through which we can showcase our mixes with pride, are even better. Spot on.

You can download the app by heading here.
