Beats the pants off Pandora.
The functional app idea is great with a few minor UI quarks. I find the idea of searching for any song I like playing throughout the country a really cool concept. The fact that I could be listening to Van Halen on a station in Nevada when I live in Washington, D.C. is great. During rush hour traffic my local stations think talk radio is what I should be listening to, with an occasional song thrown in. Now with 6 Seconds I get to hear music during my entire commute.
The coolest two features are the ability to search for any artist or song playing on any radio station and unlimited skips. I hate Pandora song skip limit, inevitably my last skip gets me to a song a hate even worse than the previous one, then I'm stuck switching to Apple Radio.
In a world of infinite DJs, someone is playing your song right now.
This renamed app (formally called 6 Seconds) leverages a massive, live database of what is playing on online radio everywhere in the world right now. It usually takes you to your song within six seconds of it having started somewhere.
The result is something that they call "near on demand." It's a very satisfying (and entirely free) way to explore new music because it introduces you to stations that are most likely to play more of what you like. Rather than relying on Beats One and a handful of DJs, it leverages the collective intelligence of hundreds of thousands.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
