Myxer Launches Music App for BlackBerry

Comment

myxer app

Myxer has launched a music app for BlackBerry that claims a catalog of more than 2 million MP3s. The app joins a long list of music apps for BlackBerry such as Pandora, Slacker Radio, Thumbplay Music, Music WithMe, etc. With so many music apps out there, guys like Myxer and Thumbplay need to offer more than just an MP3 database. The best music apps build an experience around your music. Slacker Radio gives you a cool radio-style way of discovering music and Pandora tries to learn what you like with a Genius-style algorithm. Users want cool new ways of discovering music and not just another database of relatively expensive music.

Then again, if you’re a long-time Myxer user, you’ll probably appreciate getting access to music natively from your BlackBerry. Check out the BlackBerry App here.

Research in Motion just released the first self-aware BlackBerry smartphone (AI phone). It’s an incredible move in the smartphone industry that nobody saw coming.

While the public waited fearfully, thinking the first artificially intelligent smartphone would recognize the value in enslaving humanity, it instead chose the route of launching a music store. You can now purchase MP3s directly from your BlackBerry. Resistance is futile.

Slacker Version 3.0 Comes With Cached Station Sync OTA

Comments

slacker_3

Slacker are working on version 3.0 of their awesome streaming music app and Jessica at CNET got a preview of what we can expect. Version 3.0 will give users the ability to sync cached songs OTA, with a data or WiFi connection. Apparently the syncing process is a little slow unless you’re using WiFi but the feature is still a much wanted addition. The sync feature will only be available to Slacker Radio Plus members, which will run your about $4 per month. Expect Slacker 3.0 to hit App World in a few weeks.
