Joy Entertainment LLC, in partnership with iPhone application developer Big Nerd Ranch, Inc., has added a Free LITE version to the hot music iPhone/iPod Touch application Riff Raters. Riff Raters LITE allows users to listen to all the great riffs recorded by users of Riff Raters. The users of the Free LITE version can upgrade for only $1.99 and join the ever-growing Riff Raters music community. In the full version of Riff Raters, users can rate, record and comment on riffs.
In addition, the paid application Riff Raters has added several new features. The new version update allows its users to post any riff to their Facebook Page, has added a section for news and events and will begin a Riff Off Contest on February 9, 2010. Riff Raters is a one of its kind of music app that allows users to generate musical riffs, with their own instruments via the iPhone/iPod Touch.
“Riff Raters has a community of thousands of riffers that encourage and provide input to one another about their riffs. Riff Raters combines the fun of playing and listening to music into one cool app while building an exciting music community,” says Joy Glenwright, CEO of Joy Entertainment LLC.
“Once you've posted a riff it becomes addicting because you are always wondering how many people have listened to your riff or left comments. Riff Raters can also make you realize that you need to practice a little more too. :-) There are some super talented riffers out there.” Says riffer lethol1.
A “riff” is like a musical “tweet” or a 20 second melodic phrase of any instrument or genre. If you can play it, Riff Raters can record it. You can find out more about each riffer using their links to their website, Facebook Page, MySpace or Twitter account. Post your favorite riffs to your Facebook Page for all your friends to hear. You are able to keep a list of your favorite riffs and get notified when your favorite riffer has put on a new riff. Even if you don’t play an instrument, you can rate riffs, leave comments and post riffs to your Facebook Page. You can even find where your favorite riffer is on the MAP.
Each week there is a Top Riff winner who is automatically entered into the Riff Off Contest. Riff Raters’ users from February 9-15, 2010 will rate the top riffs for all instruments and the Top Riff riffer will win a signed guitar. The Weekly Top Riff winners have included acoustic guitar, electric guitar and piano. All instruments and genres are welcome.

Gautam Godse, Software Director of Big Nerd Ranch, Inc. says, “Given there are over 150,000 iPhone applications, we feel the free LITE version is critical to expanding the growing Riff Rater community. This music application is unlike anything on the market and we are happy that it was listed in the Apple “What’s Hot” section in December 2009.”
