We built Lisn as a hackathon project that soon turned into a full-time venture because of how insanely fun it was. Music recommendation on mobile is broken — sending a URL through iMessage/Messenger/Whatsapp means jumping between apps, and there's often no feedback on whether your friend liked the song or not.
We've found that listening to the song together and chatting about it live is a great way to discover new music, it's like you're listening to music in the same room, and playing DJ for each other.
Lisn lets you pick a song from Spotify or Soundcloud and send it to your friends. When both of you are online, you can listen to synced music together and build a playlist of recommendations over time.
We've been in closed beta for a couple months now and have just released to the App Store for our public beta!
