Twones is the tool for you. Twones is best described as Delicious or Friendfeed for streaming music. The early beta site allows users to bookmark and organize music from more than 23 music services including Last.fm, Hype Machine, MOG and even MySpace. The company offers an audio footprint of where you've been and once you install the Firefox toolbar, it will also track where you're going.If you're the kind of music lover with playlists strewn across multiple web services, then
Upon downloading the toolbar, users are given the opportunity to bookmark their favorite music on the sites that they already use. From here, file links are automatically created within Twones and listeners can revisit the same bookmarks for streaming playback. In addition to offering the ability to play back songs, the site also offers a variety of information on your favorite bands including news, YouTube clips, upcoming gigs, articles and photos. Another feature is a Last.fm-style recommendation system to suggest new artists for exploration. If you'd like to find new music from community members, you can also click on the "On Air" or "Popular" buttons to get a taste of what's being played across the web.
Says co-founder Tim Heineke,"In the next month Twones will release a real time activity gadget where users can embed their playlists into social networking sites and blogs." Once this happens, users can listen to whatever they like and the tracker will automatically update sidebars, home pages and Facebook walls. Other future plans include expanding the number of services that Twones pulls from and exploring the possibility of importing 3rd party playlists created prior to Twones toolbar installation.
