Timbre music app by Intrepid Pursuits LLC
Free at the iPhone App Store
I need to get out more, and this impressive new app is a pretty good excuse. Timbre helps you find live music at venues all over the US, and gives you free samples of what youíll hear.
After installing Timbre, just type in your zip code or city name. Up pops an elegant listing of the acts playing nearby. Touch the name for more details. You get information on how to buy tickets, as well as the ability to post messages on Twitter or Facebook.
Coolest of all, Timbre automatically plays a selection from the performer. Maybe youíve heard good things about a band, but would like to sample the merchandise first. Timbre makes it happen. It even provides a link to iTunes, where you can purchase the song if it appeals to you.
Iím not much for night life, but I still enjoy stumbling across new music, and Timbre makes it exceptionally easy.
