[prMac.com] Dublin, Ireland - Shortcomings in the music listening experience on iPhone and iPod touch are addressed head-on by the release of My Artists 2 by Top Drawer Apps. Starting where the native Music/iPod app leaves off, My Artists 2 make music listening more engaging and more discovery-oriented.
The four central features of My Artists 2 are:
1. Music Player
Effortless integration with the music stored on a user's device.
2. Discover Mode
Personalised online radio as easy as shuffle.
3. Artist Profiles
Photos, videos, biographies, discographies and more.
4. One-Tap Album Previews
iTunes Music Store tailored to a user's collection.
Music Just Got Personal:
As our digital music collections expand, it's all too easy to lose touch with the faces behind the music. My Artists puts artists first.
The "Now Playing" screen focusses on the artist instead of just the album artwork. The biographies and album descriptions reveal the details behind the creation of the music. Powered by Last.fm, My Artists becomes a record-sleeve for the mobile music age and enriches the experience of listening to music.
Discovering new music in My Artists is as easy as listening to music that is already on the device. Discover Mode is activated at the tap of a button and streams handcrafted playlists from 8tracks.com based on any seed artist. Artist profiles are enriched with similar artist recommendations and links in biographies will take you to related artists, albums, videos, and genre guides.
Music Store Integration:
My Artists brings albums from the iTunes Music Store intuitively together with albums stored on a device, helping users keep up to date with new releases from their favorite artists. The app also supports one-tap album previews which makes getting a feel for an album much easier than it is through iTunes directly, where each track preview needs to be started individually.
