Music to go

Now that I have my iPhone, I'm embarassed to say I'm in love with it. I never thought I would be one of those people, but I am. So I thought I'd round up five apps for the iPhone, a few of which I have, that are great for music and radio lovers . . .

1. Pandora - I've been a big fan of Pandora since it first appeared, so this was one of the first apps I downloaded onto my phone. This free app let's you customize radio stations to artists and songs you enjoy and it's great for finding new music similar to what you already love.

2. Stitcher - I originally downloaded the Stitcher radio app for my iPhone because it had every episode of "Here's the Thing" with Alec Baldwin. Even if that was the only thing I used this app for I would love it because I'm a pretty big fan of that podcast. But it's great because now I can also get a bunch of other podcasts through NPR, CNN, AP, etc. - it's a great way to stay informed.

3. Shazam - I read about this app on Mashable and I think it could peacefully end a lot of disputes. If there's a fight about whether or not that's a J.Lo song playing, hold the phone toward the sound of the beat and it will tell you the song name and the artist. Plus, the updated version also provides you with the lyrics - another dispute ender.

4. Adaptunes - Another great app I saw on Mashable that I can't wait to download, Adaptunes meaures your speed and pumps up the volume accordingly. So whether you're out for a run or going for a drive, this app will keep you moving.

5. PaceDJ- This is a great app for working out. PaceDJ lets you set (and modify) the pace of your workout and builds you a customized playlist based on that pace and the music you have on your phone. I could definitely use this one.
