    • Unfortunately Clay that is a limitation of iPhones. They do not offer true “multi-tasking” support so you can text and listen to Pandora at the same time. Hopefully this can be addressed in iPhone 5!

    PairShare is a great new iTunes app that lets you share music between your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.


    PairShare, the first vicinity based social networking application ever released by iTunes that allows live music sharing between two iOS Devices.

    PairShare allows users to select music on their iOS device and stream it live with a nearby friend’s iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using Bluetooth.

    How it works
    Create a music “Sharelist” and stream it to a friends iPhone, iPad or iPodTouch. Search for nearby users and request to hear their music or have them listen to yours. View the album art of the music being played. With a swipe of your finger, switch back and forth between listening to your music or theirs. Bluetooth allows for up to 300’ of distance between the devices that are conducting a wireless share session.

    Whether it be hiking, biking, at the gym or at the library, PairShare is a great way to enjoy listening to the same music with a friend.

    – Share your music or listen to your friend’s music wirelessly
    – Connect over Bluetooth
    – Select a music ShareList for you and your friend to hear
    – Auto-play once connected
    – View friend’s album art, song title, album and artist
    – Auto-scan to connect with nearby friends
    – Coming soon: chat, intercom, share shuffle and more.
