Thumbplay is formerly announcing their cloud-based ThumbPlay Music application/service for Android handsets. The $10/month subscription service gives users unlimited access to over 8 million tracks through all the major record labels and an additional 25,000 independent labels.
Features of ThumbPlay include personal music collections, a Playlist Genie which recommends songs based on your favorites, iTunes importing, and of course the ability to search by artist, song, and genre. A future release of the Android version will include offline playback using caching. This feature will allow for users to listen to stations and playlists in places where there is no WiFi or data connection.
We’ve been getting rave reviews from our Android users in Beta, especially when they employ the companion app on PC and see the power of having their complete music collections and playlists in-sync. We’re thrilled to deliver a music service worthy of discerning Android fans.” – Evan Schwartz, CEO and Co-Founder of Thumbplay
Monthly subscriptions are available for $9.99/month with a free “no strings attached” three-day trial for all new users. The beta version of ThumbPlay Music has racked up over 50,000 downloads since it hit the Android Market.
