This app is going to be BIG!
Looks like Crossfader added social features since I last played with it. I used it as an example of a "mashup product" in my essay here: http://ryanhoover.me/post/724469...
This app is awesome and they just recently made all of their sound packs free to download in their most recent update, so I feel like it deserves a bump. However, there is one glaring issue that I have with this app that kinda makes it a non-starter for me. You can't export your mixes and you can't share them with a URL for others to listen to online in their web browser. This entire app is structured around getting people to become members of their community by downloading their app. The only way to can listen to someone else's mix is to have the app installed on one of your devices. Don't get me wrong, the app is amazing but it's a hard sell to casual users because the app locks down your access to the content unless you sign-up and use the app. I am sure this has nothing to do with the developer's philosophy and EVERYTHING to do with the restrictive and controlling nature of the music industry and its associated labels attempting to copy protect their content. I just wish the app was more open and at the very least you were able to share public links for people to listen to your mix online in a web browser.
