Spinrilla - Mixtapes For Free app review: discover some of the hottest mixtapes in hip-hop completely free of charge

Reviews

Introduction

This is an absolute must-have app for the hip-hop lovers amongst you, providing the latest and greatest in mixtapes, as well as new single releases and the chance to catch a sneak peak at some of the upcoming mixtapes so you can check them out as soon as they’re released.

The best iPhone apps for hiphop

Spinrilla is very nicely put-together, and although the functionality is somewhat minimal, the developer has still managed to achieve a really polished finish with the way album covers are displayed in the various sections.

If you’re a fan of hip-hop then you’ll definitely want to take Spinrilla for a, well, spin!

That is One Hip Gorilla!

As the developer mentions in the iTunes description for this app, Spinrilla is an 800-pound gorilla of absolutely free hip-hop mixtapes, and this is one seriously chunky monkey!

The best iPad apps for mixing music

There are a few different sections in Spinrilla depending on what you’re looking for.

Within the Mixtapes section you’ll find New Releases, Popular Right Now, and Upcoming. These are all pretty self-explanatory, and I really like the addition of the Upcoming section because it means you can very easily stay up to date on release times from your favorite artists.

When you select a mixtape, you’ll bring up the track listing which includes the song titles and durations. There are some real interesting mixtures in here although I must admit that a lot of it is lost on me given that I’ve never been much of a hip-hop aficionado myself!

 

High-Quality Audio Streaming

You can share mixtapes with others via Twitter and you can also download mixtapes if you’d rather not stream them.

Once you start downloading mixtapes, you’ll want to hit up the Library section as this is where you can check on the status of downloads currently in progress, and you can also view your downloaded mixtapes here as well.

The quality of the audio and the streaming rate both seem very good to me, and that’s saying something because my Internet connection is usually abysmal.

I’m very impressed with the overall quality of Spinrilla and I think it’s a great way for you to take advantage of some free tunes while discovering a few new artists in the process.
