Aweditorium for iPad - How iTunes LP should have been

The iPad provides a fantastic opportunity for some really unique media consumption experiences. We've seen magazine-type apps like Flipboard and Pulse before, but there aren't any really good examples of novel music consumption on the iPad – until now. Aweditorium is certainly a unique and engaging experience, but it's difficult to really describe what it actually is. It's brought to you ...

It works like this: you make yourself an account on TheSixtyOne, as either a listener or an artist. As a listener, you a...
