Song2Email: Send Songs From Your iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch To Your Friends Via Email

Rocha Software has released a new iOS app called Song2Email in the App Store.

As the name suggests the app allows iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users to send songs from your music library to their friends via email.

Song2Email includes the following features:

  • Multiple songs can be sent in a single email!
  • Works over WiFi or 3G.
  • Songs will have all their metadata like song/artist names and cover art left intact!
  • Recipients will be able to access the songs on their computers, as well as on mobile devices of all kinds.
  • Universal app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

The app works exactly as advertised. The user interface of the app is quite simple but functional. If you’ve migrated to iCloud then note that the song needs to be downloaded to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to be able to send the song via email. Please note that the maximum combined attachment size for a single email is limited to 20MB on the iPhone 4S, 4 and iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th generation and iPad/iPad 2, and 10MB on older devices.

This app reminded us of Song Sender – a native app developed by Erica Sadun in 2007 even before Apple launched the App Store, which also allowed you to send songs to your friends via email. We were quite surprised to see Apple approve the app as we thought music labels would have piracy concerns with such apps.

Song2Email is available in the App Store for $0.99 (at a 50% discount for a limited period). You can download it using this App Store link and don’t forget to let us know what you think about the app in the comments.

    quite novel apple allowing this after all the years or them saying about copyright

  • Pegger

    C’mon for €0,79 / $0,99. If you really want it, buy it
    – When opening the attachement on my iPod (send from my iPad2) it plays it, but it doesn’t download it in the songlist :/, So everytime i want to listen i have to open the attachement :/

      He is rigth! You have try it, before buy it. Dont be an idiot…!

  • Ramses

    Well, now how can i insert the song received by e-mail to my music lybrary?

  • Stu

    (tomorrows update): Song2Email was pulled from the app store…..

  • Shouldn’t this be illegal? What is the difference from just downloading the songs for free?

    • Anonymous

      You know there is also music you can download and share legally right?

    • This is perfectly legal as long as you don’t use it to break the law you can sent yourself music that you legally acquired or send anyone you want a song that’s aready in the public domain. And I’m sure this is true because I’m sure that people on a hacking web sight are very conciseous about copyright laws. But I do agree apple will probably pull it

    Well, you guys are saying that it can’t be added to your library. You can only go to the
    Mail to play it so that’s probably why they
    Allow this. It sucks.

    This is a nice app but wont it consume too much data by sending through email!

  • Jimi

    Remember that what you save and play will still contain some info (not just metadata) about the purchase. If they were tracking GPS locations on the Iphone, why not tracking the illegal songs downloaded?. For those who get the legally free music this is still a great app.
