Seeqpod, best known as the free “playable” music search engine, had become immensely popular in the iPhone/iPod Touch world, namely because it actually worked. Users typed in a song, and got exactly what they asked for. Those with jailbroken iPods and iPhones eventually found a way, using a program called dTunes and a Safari plugin allowing them to download media, to save music from the site directly to their devices. After Seeqpod was shut down, for obvious legal technicalities involving music distribution, hundreds of piraters were displaced, roaming the internet for new ways to download mp3’s. Many people switched to BeeMP3, the shoddy and malnourished excuse for an MP3 search engine, and thats fine. For most people. I decided to dig a little farther, to see if there was anything that could replace the marvelous Seeqpod. What did I find? Skreemr.com
Skreemr, in a nutshell, is exactly like every other music search engine, but with MUCH more content. I’ve noticed songs I can’t find on BeeMP3 or on Fl4sh.com often times are found quickly in Skreemr. Best yet, you can download the MP3 files you find onto your jailbroken iPod (using dTunes and the safari plugin), just like you could with Seeqpod.
One last thing worth mentioning is that Skreemr.com uses something called “Audiorank,” which automatically sorts your results by the best audio qualities. I really, really appreciate this feature, because I hate listening to songs that just sound terrible. I mix music in my spare time, and poor quality really gets to me. So if you want at least decent quality, I strongly recommend trying out Skreemr.com.
