As of today, the music service Play.fm offers its Mobile App for download in three versions – for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7. Now you can listen to Play.fm, one of the world’s biggest on-demand radios for live recordings and DJ sets, on your mobile device, too.
The App can be downloaded for 2.99 Euros from the respective stores (Apple iTunes, Android Market, and Microsoft zune Marketplace), giving you
180 days 1 year of unrestricted access to the audio streams of roughly 30,000 DJ sets on Play.fm, after that, you can enjoy electronic club music for five hours per month. The Premium model grants you continuous unlimited use of the huge collection of DJ sets and live recordings in your pocket.
With our mobile Apps music fans now have access to the probably biggest collection of DJ mixes regardless of where they are at the moment”, says Georg Hitzenberger, founder of Play.fm. “Cloud Music, i.e., the consumption of music hosted on dedicated streaming servers, is the future of the music business. One can assume that smartphones will play a major role there.” Currently, around 150,000 users per month are streaming music from the Play.fm collection. “We expect another increase of user numbers through our Play.fm Apps”, says Hitzenberger.
After launching the Play.fm App the user is welcomed by the Play.fm team’s “Featured List”. Other Tabs lead from here to the most popular and the most recent DJ sets. The four main navigation buttons offer the functions “Search” (searching the entire Play.fm database for DJ’s, clubs and festivals), “Genres” (where the music is sorted according to style), and “More” (among other things, this button hosts a possibility for feedback, general help, and sharing functions via Twitter and Facebook).
Play.fm is a unique music community for DJ sets and live recordings. All recordings are available for listening free and on demand at any time, can be integrated into websites with the help of a widget, and thus also be shared over social networks. The integrated Metashop provides an overview as well as the comparison of shop offers for music publications. With currently 150,000 unique visitors per month, Play.fm counts among the most important online media for electronic music world-wide. Apart from the mobile Apps, Play.fm will be available soon on game consoles, car entertainment systems, WLAN radios and TV sets.
