Piki, unveiled by Turntable, allows you to pick the best songs from their iTunes library or using a Shazam-like feature to scan a tune that’s playing close by. You can then match up with your friends who have similar music tastes by connecting through Twitter or You can then create a radio station based on the songs that have been recommended.

Twitter’s #music app mines for activity on the social network to determine popular songs, providing a personalised radio station based on the tastes of the people you follow. The app features artists shown on a grid that you can stroll up and down.
