This Is My Jam is an application that people can use to announce the special song that'd been in their head for a long time and that simply deserves a shout out to the world. It works with Facebook and Twitter so users not only can announce this to their friends but they can also view the jams that their friends are loving too. Also users can browse through other TIMJ users to stumble upon other hit songs that people are enjoying. This can be a great and unique way to discover new music. TIMJ has a nice part of their site where users can go and scroll through some of the album art of the most trending songs that are happening right then. Users can play the jams right through the TIMJ interface. Users can also continue discovering the site and the song will continue playing with a control panel located at the bottom of their page- very convenient! They can also see how many "Likes" the jam has and how many people have listened to it through the TIMJ community. Users can also comment on the jams and thank the poster for sharing their musical treasures.Show more screenshots »
The TIMJ team is pretty unassuming. They just list their jams on the About Us page and their team consists of Matt, Hannah, Ralph and Andreas. They seem to be based out of London in the UK. There isn't a ton of other information about this site and its developers available online at this time. The app's been featured in LifeHacker, The Irish Times and The NME.
TIMJ is an interactive and engaging site, especially for folks who love music and music that isn't necessarily Top 40. It is a great place to discover Indie artists, rare tracks and B-sides, and when users stumble across -that- song they will wonder where it has been there whole life. This Is My Jam is the conduit that people can use to discover these tunes!
The service uses YouTube, SoundCloud, The Hype Machine, and others to pull audio tracks and music videos, so it won't be a common occurance for a user to input a song that the application is unable to stream for the other TIMJ users. The site is simple, clean an users can easily browse and find new songs, which in the past has been a very time-consuming thing to do! TIMJ is also (surprisingly) ad-free. The site looks and acts great, especially seeing that it is in its public beta version at the moment...let's hope that nothing changes when they launch officially!
Registering with This Is My Jam is very easy. User just need to provide their email address, or they can sync with their Facebook or Twitter account. From there, they will be asked to setup a username. That's it! From there users can access the This Is My Jam site!
This Is My Jam is 100% free and ad-free. Hallelujah!
This Is My Jam is a great application to use for users who want to share that song that's been in their head forever. Alternatively, it's a great place to go to discover new favorites from one's friends or the TIMJ community. Great app for music lovers!
