Now Android users can take their Turntable.fm experience on the go with a new app for Android tablets and phones. Previously only available online and for iOS, the new Turntable.fm brings much of the same functionality you may have come to love in the web version to an app you can put in your pocket.

If you're not familiar with Turntable.fm, the service basically involves getting groups of people together to listen to music that is being virtually DJ'd by others. A room can have up to five DJs at a time, with each DJ getting a chance to play one song at a time, rotating through the lineup of those participating.

As each song is played, those listening (and the other DJs) can vote on whether they like a particular track. An Awesome rating will earn you DJ points that can be used to upgrade your avatar and earn street cred with other DJs. If you get too many Lame ratings, however, your song will skip and the next DJ's selection will begin.
Rooms within the app can be sorted by Popular, Needs DJs, or Favorites. You can join rooms and listen to music, DJ, and vote on your favorites from the app as well as chat.
Initial customer reviews and our own experience, show that the app has some stability issues -- particularly when trying to use the chat function which often causes the app to crash. Those issues could potentially be due the volume of people trying access it today or potentially a software glitch that could be corrected in an future update.
