Meet Lysn in – The New Go To Party App For House Parties Worldwide

October 29th, 2014 by Tech Staff

Camp Bestival 2014 - Day 4

 

Without music, a party can be rather boring.  Unfortunately, a lot of times the noise level of music can be a nuisance and kill a party faster than it started.  Lysn in is the pinnacle of silent disco services across the globe, providing state-of-the-art technology in the palm of the hand. It’s the world’s first iPhone app that enables users to connect any external audio source to their smartphone and broadcast the audio to friends and fans.

Silent disco parties are a new trend in the music and party industries allowing users to share a playlist via Spotify, iTunes or other popular music services.  Partygoers simply connect using their mobile device via WiFi, or with Lysn in’s Cellular Sync option that connects via cellular service providers with 3G/4G/LTE coverage.  Music is heard through headphones, keeping noise to a minimum.

Easily connect DJ gear or musical instruments to a smartphone through the Lightning /30 pin port or headphone jack and instantly stream music over a low-latency wireless network to all who “Lysn in.” Unlike other silent disco apps, Lysn in has no maximum number of users, allowing parties to be as big as possible.

The app was created by Stanfy, a premier mobile app development firm. Smooth synchronization between listeners was the number one priority for Stanfy engineers. The project involved creating an intuitive user interface as well as the backend network engineering portion. Stanfy built the app from the wireframes and was involved in every stage of development until final launch in the iTunes store.

Silent disco parties have recently been utilized at the Cannes Film Festival, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Firefly and Nocturnal Wonderland festivals.

Lysn in and silent disco parties are perfect for:

  • Apartments
  • Dorm rooms
  • Shared living spaces
  • New DJs
  • Music aficionados

“Silent disco parties are changing the way we gather together,” says George Gayl, founder of Silent Storm Systems, the company behind Lysn in.  “With users wearing headphones, they communicate with one another through the music.  Anyone can join the party at any time, making the fun never ending.  The app can even be used for sports, gym activities, even just relaxing at home”.

“Music is still one of the key threads that bind us as humans, and our goal was to create an app that was intuitive and fun to use,” says Pavel Bashmakov, co-founder at Stanfy. “We took all the elements that make a disco party fun and distilled it into simple, easy functions in an app that makes a great time just a tap away.”  Learn more about Lysn in visit http://lysn.in/.

What is Twitter Music? What You Need to Know

So What Is Twitter Music?

As some of you might have heard, Twitter launched Twitter Music last week. I have to admit when I first heard of Twitter music I thought, “Okay, how is this going to work?”  A Twitter music app?  But, I forgot – social media is about engagement, which is Twitter’s main priority for its users.  We like to follow celebrities on Twitter and the people at Twitter know this.  This is what Twitter refers to as their follow graph. They are taking it to the next level The company posted on its blog “Many of the most-followed accounts on Twitter are musicians, and half of all users follow at least one musician.”  They also found that people tweet about music too.  So how does Twitter market this information?

Twitter Music will show you what new artists have joined Twitter and what they are up to, what other Twitter users are listening to, and give you music suggestions based on your activity.  So it’s more a music discovery app as opposed to a music player. You can play music directly in the app with a Spotify or Rdio account.  You can’t search for specific tracks or albums and play them (which is probably why it won’t replace your main music player app). With this plan, more music artists will be more inclined to use Twitter to promote their music, engage their fan base, and have their followers tweet and retweet their tracks to millions of people. 

 

 

Twitter Music Features

–       It plays only 30 seconds of an iTunes track

–       You must follow an artist on Twitter to get personalized music suggestions

–       The app only allows individual tracks not an entire album.  If you want to buy an entire digital album you must exit the app and go to your music service app like iTunes.

 

 

 

So if you’re a Twitter addict, and you’re interested in what’s popular across the network, Twitter music is definitely for you.

Have you tried it yet? Do you care about the music trending on Twitter when you can get that anywhere else (Top 40 Lists)?
