May 10, 2010
Gravity Mobile today announced its MusicID® iPhone app has been released in 90 countries supporting Japanese, French, German and Spanish languages, and that it has implemented vast speed improvements across the entire app. The company also announced its app for the U.S. market, MusicID with Lyrics, has swiftly risen through the ranks and is now the leading paid music discovery as well as lyrics app in the U.S. iTunes App Store.
Tapping Gracenote®'s Global Media Database, the largest and most comprehensive media database in the world, MusicID with Lyrics allows consumers to obtain music information by searching artist or track name, entering a line from the lyrics, or by simply holding their iPhone up to music playing nearby. Once the artist or track is identified, the magic begins as the Gravity Mobile service delivers comprehensive information including lyrics, cover art, biographies, recommendations and links directly into the iTunes catalog of millions of tracks.
"We are very pleased to be recognized by iPhone and iPod touch users around the world as providing some of the best music identification and exploration experiences available today, and are thrilled to now bring those experiences to the global market," said Noah Hurwitz, co-founder and general manager, Gravity Mobile. "We believe MusicID is a groundbreaking music discovery resource for music fans that will continue to allow them to enjoy content in ways they have never been able to before."
Last year, Gravity Mobile announced AT&T had launched MusicID on more than 50 AT&T handsets with direct links to its AT&T MEdia Mall and Napster Mobile. The company has experienced rapid growth in the past two years and has been responsible for many award winning innovations made possible through a combination of its market-leading mobile technology, cutting edge applications and UI design capabilities and a proven track record of delivering best-in-class mobile solutions.
