Tech: Apple Approves MyMusicCloud for iTunes App Store

Apple Approves MyMusicCloud for iTunes App Store

TriPlay's Cloud-based Music Service Enables Users to Sync  
Music Across Mobile Phones, Tablets and Personal Computers
or Stream Music Via the Web

New York, NY – October 4, 2011 – TriPlay, a multi-faceted technology company focused on providing globally available multimedia services, today announced Apple's approval of TriPlay's MyMusicCloud application for the iTunes App store.  

MyMusicCloud enables users to sync their music across virtually every type of mobile phone, tablet or personal computer including Blackberry, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, and Apple's iPhone or iPadMyMusicCloud offers worldwide service availability. Unlike streaming-only music services, MyMusicCloud enables online and offline playback on any mobile phone, tablet or personal computer, as well as streaming through the web.

According to a recent report by comScore, about 80 percent of mobile phone users are still not using their phones to listen to music.

Why aren't more users listening to music on their phones and synchronizing their music across all of their devices including mobile phones, tablets and personal computers or laptops?

It seems likely that many users are not yet aware that there is a solution that allows them to sync their music across multiple devices while not being locked into the Amazon, Google or Apple worlds.

With all of the numerous platforms, devices, operating systems and file formats out there, the digital media market is fragmented. Users cannot easily access their music, videos and photos from the different devices they carry around. Apple’s iTunes (in iCloud) allows users to do so, but only within the Apple ecosystem. MyMusicCloud is the only solution that lets users sync their music over multiple platforms.

“The mission of the company behind MyMusicCloudTriPlay, is to bring the same flexibility to the rest of the marketplace,“ said TamirKoch, CEO for TriPlay. “Users should be able to simply enjoy their music collections on their devices of choice without having to be concerned with technical complexity.”

MyMusicCloud is a new, freemium, cross-platform cloud music service. Unlike streaming-only services such as SpotifyGrooveshark or Pandora, MyMusicCloud enables users to synchronize their music and video collections to their mobile phones and tablets for online or offline playback, as well as streaming through the web. The service launched a couple of weeks ago and is already growing in popularity in the United States and internationally.

MyMusicCloud provides a seamless solution that may be used across multiple devices simultaneously. For example, users can listen to all of their music on an Apple iPad together with an Android, Blackberry or Nokia phone. The synching of music and videos is all done over the air and automatically, without the need for a USB cable or a ‘sync’ button.
