MixTape.me is a service that allows you to create playlists out of all of your favorite music as well as discover playlists that other MixTape.me users have created. It’s completely Web-based and there’s no sign-up required in order to use it, although I recommend signing up to really get your hands dirty.
You can begin by creating a playlist, which is done with a simple mouse-click. Name your playlist and then you can search for the songs you wish to add to the playlist. You can drag and drop songs right into any playlist you like. There is also a neat feature called a “quick playlist” which allows you to drag songs into sort of a temporary playlist. This is useful if you don’t want to create a new playlist from scratch – and you have the option of saving it as a playlist later or clearing it and starting over. You can also create links to songs, share the embed code and URL of playlists with friends, as well as email playlists for others to enjoy.
There’s also a social aspect to MixTape.me, and frankly, this is where I can see the service becoming quite addictive. You can view profiles of other users, see their playlists, favor their playlists, follow them so you’ll know when they’ve added something new, and see the users they’re following. You can drag and drop individual songs from other users playlists into one of your playlists. Seriously, I could go on and on.
