PRX and The Echo Nest Team Up for Bandito

Rekha posted on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011 | PRX

Here at PRX, we’re developing innovative mobile apps for public media. To do this, we like to try out new technologies. So we partnered with The Echo Nest, based a couple of subway stops away from us in Davis Square, Somerville. The Echo Nest does pioneering work with digital music: Bandito Their “music intelligence” platform scours the Web for music news, analyzes music files, and identifies music trends.

The first product of this partnership is Bandito, a free iPhone/iPod app that scans your iTunes music library and serves up news and reviews about the artists you listen to most, gleaned from a range of online sources. You can also read up on the artists that are hot right now, whether or not they’ve already made it onto your iPod.

Get Bandito now.

Also watch this space for a breakthrough iPad app for a leading public radio music station — developed by PRX and coming soon!
