If music is your thing then you don’t want to miss Firedown – a new app for BlackBerry 10 that lets you easily grab MP3s on the fly. Firedown searches for public domain tracks and allows you to save them to your device playlist or buy the song (via 7digital).
Simply start up the app, search for an artist or song and you’ll get a list of results. Find the one you want and tap “Catch It” to save the song to your playlist. Firedown will pull the MP3 and add it to your playlist where you can play it back on your device, even if you’re offline.
So far there aren’t too many options with the app – it’s pretty much what you see is what you get. You can search for and save tracks but not much beyond that. There are plans to add in features for editing playlists as well as showing the top cached songs for your region, so it looks like the fun is just getting started. This one is a great app if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to listen to tunes on your BlackBerry 10 device.
Firedown is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices for $1.99 in BlackBerry World here.
