    BlueMuze, a bluetooth P2P music sharing program, is now in BETA on the Android Market

    Special thanks to DF, as the inspiration for this app partly came from someone here asking about apps for playlists :)

    About BlueMuze

    You don’t have to be a fan of the movie High Fidelity to remember the 80s and 90s culture of making mixtapes for friends. (Though it was a great movie).

    Handwritten lists on the back of cassettes, CDs adorned with sharpie titles — these things probably seem like distant memories in the digital age.

    But our desire to share music that inspires us, that makes us laugh, that moves us, never left. It’s just the technology that surruonds how we interact with music, that has changed so rapidly.

    BlueMuze aims to help bring back this ability. Transfer custom-made playlists, and the music files/MP3s that go with them, directly to your friends.

    Select some songs, put them in the order you want, give your playlist a name, then send it to a friend.

    You will only ever need the Trial version to receive music from someone else.

    To send music, you can use either the trial or full version but the trial is limited to 60 days and to sending 7 songs at a time.

    Since this is a live BETA release, please feel free to post any and all feedback. Suggestions/comments/bowls of cereal -- whatever you like.

    BlueMuze 0.9.6 released: lots of bugfixes and bit of performance tuning for the drag and drop screen.

    Will probably be one more featured added then 1.0 will be official in the next release or the one after.
