Ping

Matt Drance:

It’s interesting how much more polished the Ping UI is on iPhone than on the desktop—a testimony to where Apple thinks the money is. Whether you’re standing in line, sitting in an airport, or on the bus, Ping will help you find music with more confidence, and in less time, than ever.

Absolutely. And also this:

I’m already buying more music. I shudder to think what will happen once we have Ping for books and apps.

It’s easy to look at Ping (especially on the desktop) and snicker at the rough edges. But “here’s what your friends like” baked into iTunes is a huge feature. And I’m already loving it.

If I know you, in real life or in the interweb sense, feel free to follow me on Ping.
