You love your music, but your listening experience may not be as great as you think it is. Messy libraries, bad players, crappy headphones, and poorly encoded files are just a few reasons that your songs may not sound their best. Here are our top 10 ways to upgrade your music from every angle.
iOS: SoundShare is a new iPhone app that makes it very easy to share songs you enjoy with your friends, start conversations around them, and peek in on what your friends are listening to in an unobtrusive way that encourages conversation instead of intrudes on their privacy. Music discovery apps and services aren't too difficult to come by, but SoundShare is a little different. Once you're signed up and you have the app installed, SoundShare lets you play songs in your music library and go about your business knowing that the app is keeping track of the songs you're listening to. If you hear something really like, you can post it to Twitter and Facebook. You can also explore other users' music streams, leave a comment, or add them to your friends list. If someone's listening to something you might like, you can tap the song to preview it yourself.
