The Musicbed App for iPad and iPhone

written by Shane Hurlbut, ASC

The Music Bed has just released a cool little iOS app and it is a fantastic way to research what music you want for your project while you are mobile. You can search for music by different criteria, apply for a license, create a wish list, and much more. To celebrate the release, they’ve got 30 Days of Giveaways where you could win $1,500 in song licenses, an iPad Retina from TMB, plus tons of prizes from the likes of Kessler, Rode, Zacuto, LensProToGo and more.

Below is a quick tour of how it works using an iPad.

Once you have logged in, the home screen comes showing the menu bar on left and current featured artists. When you select an artist, a list of their songs comes up with a player.

Get Music brings up a search window.

We contacted The Music Bed for you to find out. They said, “we’re currently working to update our app so it matches our new site and it won’t appear in the app store until we launch the new one. We don’t have a date for the release yet, but we’ll be updating people via social media and email.”

We will let you know when we are notified of the new app.
