People Can Now Access their Personal imeem Music Library through their Android-Powered Phones
SAN FRANCISCO – February 24, 2009 – imeem, the leading social music service, today launched the latest version of imeem Mobile, its award-winning social music application for the Android platform.
The updated version of imeem Mobile includes MyMusic, a new feature which enables music lovers to access and stream their personal imeem music library through their Android-powered phones. With MyMusic, people can now browse through the music they already own and have uploaded to imeem.com and play these songs wherever and whenever they want. The enhanced version of imeem Mobile is available as a free download starting today through the Android Market (http://www.android.com/market.html).
MyMusic builds on imeem Mobile’s existing features, which allow people to create custom Internet radio stations by searching for specific artists, discover new music through personalized recommendations and artist bios, listen to the most popular artists in the imeem community, and purchase DRM-free MP3s through the Amazon MP3 application, all from their mobile device.
“Our community has been asking for this feature since we launched imeem Mobile last fall,” said Dalton Caldwell, founder and CEO of imeem. “We’re happy to give them what they want – access to their music from the cloud-and to help drive download sales by adding more value to the music people buy online. That’s good for music fans, for the industry and for imeem.”
The new version of imeem Mobile includes additional new features that make it easier for people to access and share their favorite music on the go, including:
- “Favorite” Stations: imeem Mobile now includes two new personalized Favorite stations comprised of “favorited” artists and songs . Now, people can create a customized listening experience by programming their own radio stations.
- Share with a friend: Music fans can now share their favorite songs with friends via email. Friends receive an email with a link to the full-length song on imeem.com.
