    Breakout music-sharing startup Turntable.fm released its much anticipated iPhone app today. Turntable.fm is a social music service, with a DJ-twist.

    From Gizmodo's thorough explanation of the service:
    The service, which intentionally slowed its growth by only allowing in users who had Facebook friends already in the service, has now opened up to anyone with a Facebook account.

    The iPhone app, released today, completely replicates the desktop experience.
    Turntable.fm is available free on the App Store. Users need a Facebook account to use the service. [iTunes]

    A little buggy right now. Joining/leaving rooms takes a long time. Songs take a while to play and skip occasionally. But tons of potential.

    Haven't figured out how to play music if you're a DJ yet.

    Edit: Oh my god, serious bug. I was just playing with it, and the music froze (that's a bug in itself). But then I closed the app (double home button and X'd out closed), and a minute or so later music started playing by itself on my phone. That's not good.

    If it could be AirPlay-enabled, I'm sold. I typically listen to music via my Apple TV (when it's working) and I stopped because I was just going to a room on this for the past couple months. Downside was I had to listen with desktop speakers, not my sound bar. AirPlay-enable this, and I will never use the iPod app again.

    Well, maybe a few times.

    Turn it up.

    Awesome. Turntable has become my favorite way to listen to music and I've wanted an iPhone app since I started using it.
    I'm surprised, and pleased, that MacRumors covered this, but thanks.

    It is air-play enabled. It's also full of bugs and the search sucks.

    Enter a room and wait for it to start playing the music. Then return to the room list. The volume bar will appear at the bottom of the list and the airplay selector will be there at the right of it.

    well..........

    This sounds really good, just the kind of thing I would love to use.........where is it in the app store?

    Search the web, go to home page,

    "We're very sorry, but while we would love to let you in and rock out with us, we need to currently restrict turntable access to only the United States due to licensing constraints. "


    US only................

    DAMNIT!!!!!!!!

    - could you mention this in your post so as not to get the rest of the planet excited again about yet another US only feature/app/service etc.

    to Bobreck - Thanks!

    to TBR - Nothing new here - TT has been US only for a while due to legal BS, Why would an iPhone app change that?

    But I hadn't come across Turntable.fm before this article so I wasn't to know that.

    Please WRITE something!!! Do some REPORTING!

    Why in Gods name is nobody calling TTfm out on how buggy their website is and especially their iPhone application.

    It's very suspect how many of the popular rooms seem to have little issue but the majority of the rooms are dealing with all sorts of issues. I realize the website is new and they are growing faster than expected BUT they just secured some healthy funding which should help expedite the refinement of the site and app development. This is the area they need to focus on and stop promoting Artist rooms/Special events. There is no point if the site has major issues. It would great if someone can actually write something comprehensive about this because TTfm isn't saying a word.
