TuneUp Media Launches TuneUp Mobile: Free Mobile App for Instant Music Identification, Sharing and DiscoveryFast, Ad-Free Service Complements Popular Desktop Product That Now Boasts 9 Million Users (April 19, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/19/12 -- TuneUp Media (www.tuneupmedia.com), the publisher of the #1 companion application for iTunes, today announced the launch of TuneUp Mobile. TuneUp Mobile is a free app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that identifies songs heard in real-world environments (see: car, café, bar, at home). Powered by Gracenote's MusicID, TuneUp Mobile offers a simple, ad-free interface that augments the well-known TuneUp desktop service used by millions of music lovers to manage, organize and enhance their digital music libraries.
In addition to being a fast and simple way to identify songs, TuneUp Mobile also provides sample and purchase options from iTunes, real-time lyrics, geotagging, and deep Facebook and Twitter sharing features. Beyond this, TuneUp Mobile automagically provides users with a free diagnostic of their mobile music collections with stats on missing song information, album cover art and duplicate tracks that they can manage with TuneUp for the desktop.
"Our goal in launching TuneUp Mobile is to complement our desktop presence with a music recognition, discovery and sharing service that is uncluttered by ads and other distractions," said TuneUp Founder and CEO Gabe Adiv. "Our vision is to create a comprehensive, seamless experience for our customers that enriches their enjoyment of digital music. This is a key step in that direction, and there's definitely more to come."
Improved Desktop App Now Boasts 9 Million Users
TuneUp also announced it has crossed the 9 million mark in registered users of its critically acclaimed and recently improved desktop service. TuneUp 2.4 offers dramatically upgraded stability throughout including better performance for large collections, reduced memory use, and an updated user interface.
TuneUp Mobile users can take advantage of a special bundle price of $39.99 for a lifetime license to the TuneUp desktop service -- a 20 percent discount from the standard retail price. The TuneUp Bundle includes the full suite of TuneUp's digital music management and discovery offerings including:
- Clean, which corrects missing or mislabeled song information
- Cover Art, which fills in missing album covers
- DeDuper, the world's most intelligent duplicate song remover and
