San Francisco, CA and Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Soundtrckr, http://www.soundtrckr.com, the geosocial music service for smartphones and the web, today announced two exciting feature updates to its iPhone application. Users can now create stations from any artist in the expansive soundtrckr catalogue, as well as determine the current location of their friends and listeners.
These feature enhancements to the soundtrckr service build on its ability to create personalized radio stations in any imaginable subgenre, and also optimize its location-aware social network to help users build connected communities of music fans.
“We're very pleased to roll out this update. Users wanted the opportunity to create stations beyond what was in their handset, and to see where their friends and listeners were around the country,” said Daniele Calabrese, Founder and CEO, soundtrckr. “It's fascinating to observe how users are shaping the soundtrckr experience. The possibilities really are endless, and our team remains committed to finding new ways to connect people, places and music.”
With soundtrckr, users can create and share their own stations instantly, seeding playlists from a database of music that covers tastes ranging from the most mainstream to the most obscure. For instance: a Washington, DC user can create a station of 80s Russian pop hits that have been out of print since Bill Clinton was president. She tweets a link to her station and a friend in San Francisco decides to tune in; using soundtrckr, her friend can listen along in real time, song for song. Word spreads from there, and as more people tune into the station, each listener can determine the others' locations, converse through an integrated TCP/IP chat feature, and share the station with their own friends via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
Soundtrckr is the first truly geosocial music service, rooted in awareness of physical place and aiming to restore the shared experience at the heart of music. Soundtrckr currently supports iPhone and iPod Touch, and will be available on additional platforms in the near future.
Soundtrckr is a free geosocial music service for smartphones and the web. With a fully licensed library of more than 7 million songs, soundtrckr enables users to create personal radio stations, listen to music with friends in real time, and geotag their favorite songs to their favorite places. The soundtrckr team is into cities, tunes, and technology, and has offices in San Francisco and Washington, DC.
