Quite accessible to find and listen to mixes, which are basically playlists with a certain theme or style of music. There is one unlabeled button I see and I'm not sure what it does. There is a button to show the track list. The songs appear with the newest at the top and links to buy the song from ITunes.
In order to make mixes, you will need to sign up for an account and download their uploader program, neither of which I have done myself. Great way to discover new music from others who share your musical interests. You can use the provided categories or use the search box to type in an artist. Some of the tagging is a little crazy, so you might find, for example, a mix tagged as country which has very little country in it, but I have discovered lots of great music with this app and hope to make mixes myself soon.
