The Turntable iPhone App is Exceptional

For once, what all the tech blogs say is true! The Turntable iPhone app is out and it's gooood. Not that many people at all use Turntable, it's strange to say, but it's a really smart company that's built a great product and is trying to keep it on the up-and-up.

To login, you just need a Facebook friend that's logged in. (I'll be your friend!) Turntable's at its best, secretly, when you use it as a radio. Five people competing to entertain you in the genre of music you like best? Uh, what's not to love?

People who "DJ" in Turntable say it's a little tricky to manage the queue interface, but why would you bother to do that from your iPhone anyway? Now we have reinvented the portable radio. (But better!)

I still don't know how this works :/

@boyofdestiny When a man loves a start up very very much, and he wants to share that love…

@deepomega Can you give a startup a "Special Hug"?

@boyofdestiny Haha. I know, it's too simple to explain. "Some people play music; other people sit in a chat room and listen to that music." TA DA!

@Choire Sicha I also feel like it might be a bit like being a party with a bunch of music snobs, all fighting for control of the iPod connection to the stereo. I would like to check it out, though. WHO WANTS TO BE MY FB FRIEND?

I'm totally addicted, but it's still buggy like hell.

I prefer the competitor: Victrola.

Choire is deluged with FB friend requests in 3…2…1…

Great, except you'll be out of power in 20 minutes.

@NotAndersonCooper Just keep a couple of unpaid interns chained to a treadmill connected to your charger.

iPhone + turntable app + Jambox = how we will socialize at parties from now on.

@Eric Spiegelman Well, at least until they get the dewormer our of all the cocaine.

@Rod T My face hasn't melted that much yet.

Ah! If you iPhone goes to sleep you lose your DJ spot!

The rampant habit of using the word "friend" when you really mean "buddy" was troubling me even before things like Facebook existed. Now, I feel like I'm forced to say "my very good friend" when I simply want to to say "my friend" because I don't think that "friend" has enough strength left to describe the relationship I have in mind.

salvo (#8,697)

can you get in w/o being on Facebook?

superdave (#8,972)

Will you be my friend? Honestly and for real? Because if I ask and then you reject me, I don't know if I'll be able to handle it.
