The partnership furthers the shared goal of the two companies: enabling music lovers to enjoy music more
Monrovia, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2006
MusicIP, the first global music search engine, and FIQL, an online music community, have partnered to enable users to post, trade, and play dynamic playlists directly from one of the most widely used music applications on the market.
Used on more than 10 million desktops, MusicIP’s technology offers a number of unique features, including the ability to build powerful playlists based on mood or purpose. The added functionality of posting playlists directly to FIQL.com as well as importing playlists from the website into the MusicIP Mixer makes music discovery/purchase even easier. If a FIQL playlist includes songs that a listener does not currently own, MusicIP can replace the missing tracks with similar sounding ones from the listener’s collection or can point to a digital music retailer to purchase the missing tracks.
“The partnership furthers the shared goal of the two companies: enabling music lovers to enjoy music more,” says Dr. Matthew Dunn, CEO of MusicIP. “Partnering with FIQL empowers our customers to find others who share their musical interests, as well as easily discover new music they’ll enjoy within others’ playlists.”
"This partnership connects two music loving communities and provides additional value to both," says Michael Wu, Founder of FIQL.com. "We hope the FIQL community will use the MusicIP Mixer to discover wonderful new playlists both inside and outside of their collections."
