I’m excited about the public launch yesterday of a new music service. Qloud is a music search and discovery site, with many more features hooked in including tagging, rating, buying, and playing of music.

There are a couple of tools in their trick bag to get you started on entering your music data into the service. There is a plugin for iTunes (currently Windows only), and an extension for Songbird (Cross Platform). The Briks team had the pleasure of developing the latter. Features of the extension include tagging of tracks, browse library by tag and/or artist, and playlist creation.

So if you have your music collection handy, there is no time like now. Head over to Qloud and organise, discover and dance!

    Just curious as to how something like this is different from last.fm

    I like it, but I doubt that I’ll use it a huge amount until they allow tagging of albums; I very rarely just listen to ‘a track’ or a group of random tracks.

    That’s really cool. I agree with “Spam” though, it’d be nice to see tagging available for entire albums. At last, I might be able to get rid of the woefully inadequate “Genre” categorization! :)

    Tagging multiple tracks (albums and artists) is already on the roadmap. I can’t say, however, when it will be released.
