    App Alert: Check Out Tastemaker X - It's a new music discovery app

    TastemakerX, the new social game for music discovery, is launching its mobile app and website to the public on June 14.

    TastemakerX crosses a fantasy sports league with a stock exchange. Cool, right? We are so stoked about this.

    It allows users to invest virtual currency into a portfolio of artists. The portfolio climbs in value as the popularity of a player's chosen artists increase. Baked into the trading component is social sharing, biographies of bands, news items and the ability to listen to song clips of the bands and purchase tracks via iTunes.


    • Players discover new artists, trends, inspiration, and meet other like-minded music fans.
    • Players compete against other Tastemakers who are passionate about music.
    • Players capture and share their taste in music across their social networks.
    Here's a short clip of CEO Marc Ruxin explaining the game: SxSW. Check it out below.

    Does this sound like an app you want to use? Are you going to diversify your musical portfolio? Pick up Tastemaker X in the iTunes store.
