TuneWiki for BlackBerry

twlogotype_sm_whitebg

I’ve had enough of iPhone this and iPhone that.  Let’s talk cool apps for your BlackBerry, shall we?  Gear Diary reported that TuneWiki is available for the BlackBerry.  What is TuneWiki?  It’s a website that plays music of your choice and displays lyrics.  It’s a community forum.  It displays maps that show what other users are listening to.  It may still be a beta, but it’s pretty darn cool!  Now they have an app available in the BlackBerry App Store (yes, we have one too).  It’s a free download, but you can upgrade to the Pro version for $4.99.  Supposedly the free version is ad-supported, but I didn’t see any.  So let’s give it a quick walk through…

Click on the icon (top row, 2nd from left) to get started.

The software scans your BB for all music.  Then you can choose Playlists, Artists, etc.

Lyrics

The lyrics are displayed two lines at a time and scroll with the music.  It is perfectly synchronized and perfect for mobile Karaoke.

I decided to see if could retrieve lyrics from songs covered by other artists, in this case, American Idol Allison Iraheta’s version of Papa Was a Rolling Stone.

Unfortunately it didn’t work.  But it was very successful with originals. 

You can make playlists too.  But you have to play the song, then choose the “Add to Playlist” menu option.  If the software let you choose songs without having to start them it would be much easier.

Choices

You can also go to their online community.

Here’s the mobile site:

All told, this is a really cool app, especially considering it’s free.  So far I have seen no advertisements either.  Check it out yourself by going to the website or downloading the app from the BlackBerry App Store.
