Each week the iPad App Store has a few featured sections that highlight a particular category of apps. This week Music Discovery is one of these and it’s a great looking group of apps that are highlighted.
The Music Discovery Apps section is among those rotating at the top of the Featured are of the iPad App Store – and it includes 21 apps. It includes Band of the Day and Songza, two of our past picks for Best Free iPad App of the Week, as well as Pandora, TuneIn Radio, Shazam for iPad and a number of other very good apps. I’m always on the lookout for more ways to discover good new music, so it’s great to see this category growing in the iPad App Store.
I’m not sure Apple’s own Podcasts app really deserves a place in this list, but maybe there are enough good music discovery podcasts featured to justify the pick.
If you’re fond of using the iPad to help you discover new music you may well want to give this week’s featured section a look. There’s also an Apps for Foodies section this week, just below the New and Noteworthy section.
