When I started the "Song of the Day" feature a few months ago, I thought that it would be a great idea to have a playlist of all the songs featured that month so the readers could listen to while perusing the site. I was looking for a website that would have the following features: 1) able to be embedded on the site 2) available as a mobile app 3) have a custom page listing all of the playlists created. In this day of technology, I never in a million years would have thought it to be that much of a challenge. Well, it was until I discovered Playmoss.
Playmoss allows you to embed the playlist on your site. It is customizable and shows the video or album art while the song plays.
Playmoss is available as either an iOS or Android app so you can listen on your mobile device of choice.
Playmoss allows you to create a custom page with your logo as well as any of your sites related links: Bandcamp, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
So you are probably wondering how you add all the songs to your playlist. This is my favorite feature. You add songs by grabbing the url you find for the song on YouTube, Sound Cloud and Vimeo (Bandcamp will be going live in a few weeks) and placing the url of the song in the search box as you edit. Although, the easiest way to do this is to add the Google Chrome extension to your browser and add the songs that way. When you click on the Playmoss icon at the top of the page the available songs will turn green. Then, all you have to do is add the song to whichever playlist you choose. Pretty simple and very cool.
They are also avid supporters of great artists and their artwork and have a very prompt and attentive customer service department.
There you have it. Go to Playmoss and sign up for free now. While there check out our site and follow us. Oh yeah, and don't forget to share. There is so much great music out there that just needs to be heard.
