This week, we’re looking at sites and apps and things that make life easier for artists and budding artists and grandma -- because she just loves cats so darn much.
Albumatic is simple: someone creates an album in Albumatic for an event or day, lots of people take pictures, people add the pictures to the album and everyone in your friends list has access to them if shared.
Twitter Music is a site/app that allows users of Twitter to follow their favorite artists, get recommendations for new artists, see what people on Twitter are listening to and can integrate with Spotify or Rdio.
