Music WithMe Shares Common iTunes Playlists For Ultimate Social Music Experience on the Most Popular Online Social Network
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkVu, innovators in making media truly mobile, today announced the ability to recommend individual tracks on iTunes to Facebook friends with the Music WithMe Facebook application*. Music WithMe makes social music discovery on the world's largest social networking site a reality.
Music WithMe on Facebook is available for free at: http://apps.facebook.com/musicwithme.
Music WithMe on Facebook takes your common iTunes playlists (top 25 most played tracks, top rated tracks, recently added tracks and recently played tracks) and makes them available for Facebook friends to see. Friends can recommend any track to any of their Facebook friends – a Metallica track for a metal fan? With Music WithMe, you can select which track to recommend to any particular friend and all recommendations are displayed on their Wall for friends to view and comment on.
Music WithMe also allows you to "Like" an individual track. By clicking "Like" all track information, including record name and artist is posted on your Facebook wall. Facebook friends can then "Like" or add their own comments.
Music WithMe enables sharing of even the most niche indie label bands. For example, a Facebook friend has just uploaded all their limited edition synth-pop tracks from the 80's and wants to share with Facebook friends. With Music WithMe, all tracks are displayed and friends can view, like and recommend to their Facebook friends even if those friends do not currently have Music WithMe installed.
The Music WithMe Facebook application can be easily installed on a Windows machine. Once connected the Music WithMe desktop client will automatically sync users' iTunes playlists with their Facebook page. Any time a change is made to users' iTunes playlists, Music WithMe automatically updates on Facebook, reflecting the latest changes.
"Music WithMe for Facebook leverages the power of the most popular social networking site on the planet and allows you to share your musical tastes, from mainstream to obscure, with Facebook friends," said Jeff Fedor, Co-CEO of ParkVu. "Music WithMe provides Facebook's over 200 million active users around the world with an amazing tool for music discovery and interaction."
Music WithMe for BlackBerry smartphones is also available at BlackBerry App World. Using a Wi-Fi or cellular connection, Music WithMe wirelessly and automatically syncs users' iTunes playlists with their smartphone, eliminating the need for a USB connection or secondary portable music playing device.
Music WithMe for Facebook is available for free. The Music WithMe Facebook app public beta is available at http://apps.facebook.com/musicwithme.
