Thumbplay Music Comes out of Beta
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.

Team Douche strikes again! Yesterday, a post on cyanogenmod.com announced the roll out of the infamous nightly builds, which are all based upon the newest version of the mod, Cyanogenmod 7 (CM7).
Back in November, we heard that game developer PopCap was working on Android versions of several of its most popular games, aiming to release them in “early 2011.” We now have more information:
Bejeweled 2 will debut this week.
Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle and Chuzzle are on track to release in the second quarter of 2011.
They don’t plan to use OpenFeint at this point, but they are “more likely” to use Facebook Connect.
I’m not sure if Q2 counts as “early,” but it will still be in the first half of the year, so I guess we can say they’re generally on target–and it sounds like they will be worth the wait.
