Swedish startup, Tunaspot, recently launched their new Spotify app that lets you tag a public playlist with a physical location. Once you add the app, you can navigate around your neighborhood or any other geolocation and find other playlists tagged by users to be discovered by business, homes, stadiums, and anything else you can think of.
Once a playlist has been added, other users can freely browse the map to find music that may be associated with a coffee shop, festival, or a club. Each playlist or “tuna”, as its referred to in the app, is given popularity rankings, based on subscriptions and share’s, which will also define what venue is currently “hot”.
With music being readily available on the internet today Tunaspot takes a different approach, filtering music by location. Enabling you to discover music that works best for a particular location or activity. It can be your home town, your balcony, a secret beach, your gym or your favorite club. Right now the mapping isn’t overly cluttered with playlists, but we can quickly see this might a problem in the future – in the mean time Tunaspot is a very nice collection of playlists to be discovered in your area.
