Tracktl is a free iPhone app to collaborative control music in party. It is the official app for Tracl.tl website, which I reviewed recently. This app lets you enjoy all features of website from your iPhone.
For those who are not aware about Track.tl, here is a brief intro. This app lets everyone control music in a party in a collaborative manner. It means that anyone can add songs to the playlist and vote for the songs which are added to playlist. The app is quite smart as it plays most voted songs first from the playlist.
The app is collaborative, but it still gives final authority to play/pause and delete any song from playlist to party creator. The app also has a timeline called Party Wall from where you can track activities of other party members like songs added by them, voted by them, and you can even post comments on this wall.
