The world’s first “Mobile Music Bookmarking App

Today, music lovers use multiple services like SoundCloud, Rdio, Spotify, YouTube or apps such as Pandora, Songza to discover new sounds. Because there isn't a one-stop solution, users end up with favorites in all  these different services.  As a user, I would like to bookmark all my favorites or store all my listen-later queue in one location.

In order to solve the problem described above, we created a service called STASH.FM. At the hackathon, we created a library that can be integrated in any Android and iOS music apps and then with just one click users can bookmark sounds in one location. We showcased how tracks from Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, Songza, UberHype, Shazam, Google Play can be bookmarked in one place. Stash.fm was built as an Android & iOS app.
