[prMac.com] Hollywood, California - Elements2Dance (E2D) has released songvoo(TM) 1.0, their new iPod app and music companion for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique capabilities and interface, songvoo uses the entire display for the song title and artist of the current playing song. songvoo serves as a great iPod companion for both casual user and music professionals alike, or anyone who has a large, constantly changing music collection to stay on top of.
Perfect for jogging, driving, and many other active diversions, the large, easy-to-read display shows at-a-glance exactly what song is playing and who the artist is. songvoo will look great in a car-mount or speaker dock. It even responds to all external remote controls like next song, previous song, pause, and play, including control from Apple's earbud remote.
songvoo features intuitive, yet incredibly useful controls and work great no matter what the users orientation is to the screen, such as when the device is in an armband, or even when driving. Just tap once to play or pause, double-tap the screen to go to the next track, or go to the previous track with a triple-tap. songvoo also shows elapsed and remaining time for the currently playing track, along with a slider that can be used to skip sections or replay a certain part.
"I developed songvoo originally to fill a need for my own enormous and constantly growing music collection." said Jokton Strealy, resident DJ of E2D. "The included iPod app was not enough for my needs because the text seemed too small, and song names and artists appeared got cut off for lack of space because the album cover art is so big. I also felt that the interface needed to be more fun and look stylish. Apple opening up version 3.0 of the iPhone OS allows so much more freedom. Although created for music professionals, songvoo allows for extensive user customization which should also appeal to a wider audience."
Users can choose a new playlist (or songs) from their iPod library at any time, as well as choose music in the iPod app if they prefer, and bounce back and forth between apps with no problem. Additionally, it is possible to personalize songvoo in the settings application. Change font, colors, background image, or enable the shake to randomize feature and set these automatically.
