Twitter has launched its much awaited Music app for iPhone and web users on 18 April. Android phone users would have to wait a little further – Twitter has promised that service will eventually be available on Android devices very soon as well. This music app collects users’ activity information based on their account as to which bands or artist they follow, and will find music they like accordingly.

The app has an extremely intuitive user interface with a sleek and polished design made up of each artist or song’s page displayed in a grid. As you tap the play button on an image of an artist, it will start playing a clip from one song picked to represent them and an animated CD will spin on the bottom of left corner. It has four swipeable tabs “Popular”, “Emerging”, “Suggested” and “Now Playing” to help users navigate new songs and provides a dedicated page for Artist that the user is following at present.  The “Popular” tab is dedicated to trending songs on Twitter while “Emerging” tab is for up-and-coming artists. “Suggested” tab displays result on the basis of user’s following of bands or artist. “Now Playing “tab lists the songs tweeted by the people whom the user follows.

For web users it is available at https://music.twitter.com. However, for iPhone users, the app will be initially available in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand only before it is spread to other countries.
