Scouta Brings Recommendations To iTunes

Social music and video recommendations startup Scouta has today launched free Mac software that automatically provides social recommendations for iTunes, iPods, iPhones, and the Apple TV.

Scouta launched in February with a service that recommends audio and video content to members based on personal content preferences.

The new agent allows Scouta to base recommendations on a member’s iTunes library, including podcasts and video podcast subscriptions. Recommendations are then automatically provided within iTunes to be played locally or uploaded to attached devices.

Scouta has also launched a site redesign and new site features to coincide with the launch.

Scouta plans to include movie, music video, and television show recommendations in future releases.
