Sharing: encouraged by your mother whilst
you were growing up, and yet very much discouraged by Steve Jobs now you’re a grown up. Confusing.
Eavesdrop for the iPhone is not going to find many fans in Cupertino, but it’s got a fan
right here. It allows you to share music with another iPhone owner without the need to have
one earphone each, since it does so over WiFi or Bluetooth. It’s a case of each of you
downloading the app, for £1.19. Once it’s open on each of the phones, one of you takes
the roll of DJ, and picks a song to share. The DJ phone will then show up on the listeners
peers list, and once you’ve connected, you’ll be sharing the song in realtime. As a nod
to providing some way of paying the artists, you can search for the song on iTunes, or
bookmark it to search for later. Totally 100% Apple friendly? Probably not. So, get it whilst
it’s still in store.
