We've all been there: listening to the radio, hoping the next track is something good. Or perhaps there's a specific track you want to hear, so you listen to the crappy local station for half of the day waiting for the audio goodness that you so desperately crave to grace your ear canal. Thanks to a new app called Jelli, you may never have to deal with what some deejay wants you to hear again.

Jelli is basically democratic radio, as in, you vote for what track is played next. It works a little something like this: fire up the app and choose which station you want to listen to. The currently playing track will automatically start streaming. A quick swipe from right-to-left will show you the contenders for the next track - thumbs up the ones you would like to hear, X the ones you don't. Simple!

The app also features a built-in chat area, so you can kick it with other Jelli-ers while you listen to the democratically-decided mix of tunes.

Jelli is free, so hit the widget and give it a try.

    "This app is incompatible with all of your devices."

    Guess this must be restricted to North America as I have just about every type of Android device here in the UK!

      Yeah you can thank SoundExchange and the major US record labels for that

      Not available in Canada either, so it's just the States I guess. Lame.

    Shouldn't the title be "...Republican Approach..." as the "Democratic Approach" would be to put the federal government "In Control Of The Tunes"?

    • ari-free

      Constitutional Approach would be even better. :)

      No republican approach would be to allow millionaires use it free, and have everyone else pay to play-but only right wing praising songs.

    • Sjoerd93

      The Republican Approach would let rich people their votes weigh more, it would also block all non-religious songs and it will create a database of the songs which would be send to the Government; everyone not listining to patriotic USA songs will be labeled as potential-terrorist. Next to that, it would delete all other apps because they may had bug-exploits of mass destruction.

      Yeah, I can bash politcal parties too :-D

      (Not starting a political debate here, there are other places for that. Just saying that your comment is meaningless and kind of bigoted. To the mods: if my comment is too politcal, feel free to remove it)

    "Not available in your country" ... long live borderless Internet ... EVERYWHERE OR NOWHERE!!!!

  • Freak4Dell

    Okay, I gotta ask...if you are just dying to hear some specific song, why wouldn't you just load it up on one of the services that already lets you do that?

    I mean, I can understand if you want to listen to music that you may not have, but want to skip some song you don't happen to like, so I'm not saying this app is useless...just that the example presented has a much better solution than this app.

    Finally! I love listening to jelli 96.7 in Las Vegas! These streaming radio stations are not just over the internet but some cities actually broadcast them on local radio channels. IOS has had this ap for a long time I'm glad its here for android!!! Im sick of hearing "this song is chosen by iPhone user xxx" Time for android users to represent!

    Jelli is utter crap, the so called EDM station in Las Vegas plays the same crap as the top 40 stations, the BPM channel is nothing but Dubstep(Lamestep), Top 40 and Rap, haven't heard any actuall electronica and Dance play in over 3 months
