Music App Review: SPEAZIE - Easy To Use, Innovative and Free

The app is called Speazie (speaker + easy?).

This new app is conducive to collaboration between artists and there is a great built in audio player. It is a great platform for collaboration between hip hop producers and rappers. Producers can post their beats, and if the rapper stumbles upon it and like the beat they can record a rap over the beat right from their phone, and this can be done with any beat that is posted whether it be acoustic, hip hop, electronic etc. 

Recording is a breeze with the app, it even has a nice user interface with a graphic of a microphone and a background of a vocal booth/studio. The app is very easy to use and took me about 10 minutes to get the hang of. It is similar to other social networks in that you can follow an artist, and like or comment on specific tracks.
