New Feature: Artist Video Feeds

Kicknote is happy to announce the release of the next step in our push towards the Artist Newsfeed.–the YouTube video feed. Kicknote now scans YouTube and automatically grabs new videos about your favorite artists and puts them right into their Kicknote profiles and your custom artist feed (if you have it set up).

If you haven’t set up your custom artist feed yet, you can set it up by either logging in or registering for Kicknote. Once logged in, you can have Kicknote read your iTunes and create a custom artist feed for you based on the artists in your iTunes. Your Kicknote Artist Feed will then provide you with a single place to find all the latest Twitter updates, Flickr photos, and YouTube videos from & about your favorite artists. It’s as simple as that!

New designs and layouts are currently in the works to accommodate our new features. Also, there are plenty more features on the way. Check back soon!

New Feature: Artist Sites Categories/Filters

Here at Kicknote we’ve been hard at work to keep the site steadily evolving. A ton of stuff is currently being worked on behind the scenes (and it’s almost ready), but we’re trying to release little updates as often as possible to keep improving the user experience for you guys. Our latest update was adding categories & filters to the artist sites box (check out the screenshot). Now you can select one of seven categories (artist updates, videos/pics, streaming music, tix/concerts, get music/merch, bio/info, & social networks), and Kicknote will show you which of the artist’s sites have what you’re looking for. This is especially helpful if you’re not exactly sure what some of the sites “do,” or you’ve never heard of them before.

A full artist profile redesign is on the way, which will include a more robust version of categories/filters, a new layout, and an artist-specific newsfeed of real-time updates, among other things.

Lots of great new features will be out soon, so be sure to check back often!
