And it's all legal, thanks to Beatshare's use of official third-party Application Programming Interfaces.

The Beatshare app features an elegant, clean design and access to a large selection of music. Users can search by lyrics, artist, song, or keyword and Beatshare integrates with Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud. There is a 10-second limitation, which is probably due to licensing issues, but that's enough time to make a fun, unique video clip and share with your friends. The app's interface is reminiscent of the original iPod's clickwheel! Hard to believe the iPod is already retro!
