eMusic launches its new App for Android Combining Advanced Player and Discovery Experience
Available Today for Free in the UK Google Play Apps Store
London, UK September 18th, 2012- Today, download-and-discovery service eMusic released its new Android mobile app, fulfilling its commitment to bringing its members  new products and services that better serve their music discovery and listening habits.
The app, available to use for all Android users, includes features that are part of the core eMusic discovery experience – recommendations, editorial features and reviews.  The app allows users to manage their complete mobile music collection, and re-discover songs within their existing music collection through new features, like Mixes.
This unique experience, combined with an intuitive player, is now available to UK Android users for free.  The eMusic app for Android is optimized for Android v2.3.3 or newer with at least 1GHz and 576MB RAM.  Since its US release in April 2012, the app has gained steady popularity in the US Google Play Apps Store.
“This is a great app for music collectors. We believe that Android users who have downloaded the app in the US – eMusic members and non-members alike – are using this app as their primary music management system.  We’re excited to bring this app to the UK music consumers,” said Adam Klein, President and CEO of eMusic.  “We’ve combined the eMusic editorial DNA with data gleaned from the eMusic member community to create a sophisticated mobile music discovery experience.”
·         Mixes – Users can re-discover music they already own by automatically creating a unique mix from their own collection. Control mood, tempo and tracks played, to inject a bit of automated creativity into a stale playlist.
·         Recommendations – Based on listening behaviour on the device, recommendations for new music can be viewed in a variety of contexts, from Under Played to Recently Added, or by straight up eMusic Picks.
·         eMusic Charts – Access eMusic’s charts from within the app to see what’s trending for eMusic’s community of serious music fans.
·         New + Noteworthy – A daily feed of new releases available on eMusic. Users can check out our editor’s picks of the top albums to learn about, sample and download.
·         Features + Reviews – Access eMusic’s editorial features, including original album reviews and artist interviews, for all songs and albums on the user’s device.
eMusic members can review their library, view their eMusic Downloads history, and access their Saved Music, which is synced with their “Save for Later” files on the eMusic web experience.  Music that is downloaded through the app by members will be recognized on, feeding into the recommendations and overall personalised discovery experience on the site.
The eMusic app for Android was created in partnership with discovery app experts, Hunted Media, who are the creators of popular Indie site We Are Hunted.
