Product

bop.fm (Ycombinator S13) creates a home for every song on the internet. We are a San Francisco-based music technology company that aggregates several popular music services (Spotify, Rdio, iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc) into one app. You can then search for any song, play it using any service, and share/discover with any friend (even if they use a different service than you). bop.fm powers this same aggregation and service-agnostic music playback for websites like Rap Genius, messaging clients like GroupMe, as well as social networks, wireless carriers, garden gnomes, etc. For more info, please see our recent coverage at http://blog.bop.fm/category/press/
