Ryno Goosen from leading audio and video distributor, The HFX Group, explains: ‚”The app brings iTunes music collections from multiple iOS devices together wirelessly, so several iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone users can build a customised, collaborative community playlist streamed to any AirPlay-enabled music player like the B&W Zeppelin Air speaker dock.‚”
He says that you can download the free app directly to your Apple device, invite your party guests to do the same, and immediately begin streaming everyone’s favourite tunes to a playlist you manage on your device.
