Coverjam is the perfect way for an artist's fans to see the latest and greatest images of the acts they love.
Wye Valley, UK (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Electric Pocket Limited today launched Coverjam for iOS, a first-of-its kind app which automatically taps into the image libraries of Instagram and Flickr to create beautiful multimedia slideshows of each artist as their music is playing. For the first time, music lovers will have more than just cover art to look at while listening to their favorite bands.
Coverjam uses an instantly familiar interface to control users’ music, and automatically retrieves images tagged with the artists’ names from Instagram and Flickr and begins displaying them while the music is playing. Upon its launch, Coverjam loads the user’s music from their iOS device, allows the user to select songs, albums or playlists and then fetches the latest images to display while the song is playing.
“Coverjam is the perfect way for an artist’s fans to see the latest and greatest images of the acts they love,” said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s Chief Product Officer. “Whether it’s the latest tour photos, new photo-shoots, or art created by other fans, the photos in Coverjam are sure to delight the most avid music lovers.”
Coverjam fits in well with user’s current ways of playing music. Users who are already listening to music via the default iPod player can simply launch Coverjam with their music playing and the app will seamlessly load photos for the song being played.
Features of Coverjam Include:
- Photo sharing via Facebook, Twitter or email
- A fresh slide-set each time the music track advances to the next song
- The ability to select music from either the iPod music player or Coverjam
- Viewing photos in Safari, with options for learning more about them and seeing other photos by the same photographers
The free version of Coverjam includes advertising and is available for iPhone and iPod Touch devices, and will run in 2x mode on an iPad. Coverjam Pro offers a stunning full-screen experience on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch with no ads for US$0.99.
Coverjam uses the Instagram API and Flickr API but is not endorsed or certified by Instagram or by Flickr.
