Explore SoundCloud with CruelGames' third party client

Published by at

The social network built around audio, SoundCloud, might not have an official Windows Phone client available, but with an accessible API many WP developers have stepped up to release third party clients. CruelGames have one of the more functional clients for the service.

Their client is built around exploring and listening to the content available on the SoundCloud platform, with various filters and sort options to apply alongside your search term. Audio can be streamed over any Internet connection, and the usual caveats apply about data usage on a cellular connection.

You can also record sounds from inside the app to upload them to your own account. Because of the Windows Phone security model, you won't be able to upload existing sounds from the handset. Nevertheless with a live tile you can use to start recording sounds, you will be able to get your audio snippets up and online without a huge amount of effort.
