|Streaming music / social media / video game site Turntable.FM is completing what we knew would come some day: the Turntable.FM iPad app and iPhone app. TechCrunch has posted a screenshot,and the news on it says that a launch is possible sometime this week as the Turntable.FM team has been doing a few weeks of testing and is close to a launch.
Back in July, I talked about how they had raised $7.5 million in fresh capital, but there were rumors around who that money actually came from. It was later found out that the group of investors included Kanye West and Lady Gaga, and a larger group called Union Square Ventures. It's unclear at this point whether Gaga and Kanye were part of Union Square Ventures or separate investors.
The Turntable.FM Twitter also announced that they were working on it earlier this Summer, with a clue revealed by saying that they're working on iOS development, meaning iPad and iPhone.
Investor Charlie O'Donnell got on Twitter and dropped hints that he'd love to see a Turntable.FM mobile app, saying "If Turntable.fm asked me to pay a subscription to take it mobile... I'd do it in a heartbeat."
There also have been Turntable.FM rumors that it will be part of a Facebook Music launch set for this Fall.
