Unlike the iPhone, Google’s Android operating system hasn’t seemed to burst onto the scene with ten marching bands in tow.  The "little bit here, little bit there" approach looks to be working pretty well, however, as MySpace and Imeem have announced a couple of new applications.

Both are available for free through the Android Market.  Otherwise, as a MySpace spokesperson told WebProNews, "The MySpace app includes cool features like instant photo upload from Android to a MySpace profile and the ability to check out tour schedules on band profiles.  The MySpace app is also integrated with Shazam, allowing users to identify music and connect to the artist’s MySpace page."

Fittingly enough, the Imeem app focuses on music, too.  It aims to bring streaming music and personalized radio to users’ phones, and syncs with profiles created on the main site.  On the more commercial front, it’s tied to the Amazon MP3 app so that users can buy songs if they wish.

These new applications are sure to become quite popular, probably the sort of things people will add in their first five minutes of T-Mobile G1 ownership.  Since MySpace had already developed an application for the iPhone and Pandora’s created an iPhone app, too, Android as a whole might even benefit from their existence.

As for the future, Imeem representatives have promised playlist integration, and the MySpace spokesperson mentioned innovation and monetization through advertising.
