LONDON & BERLIN--()--Today JUKE announced the launch of its iPad app to augment its streaming music service which already consists of a smartphone iOs and android app as well as a web service. Based on the new features, all jukers now have access to a dedicated iPad version, a social media sharing function, full synchronisation of MyJUKE favourites between various devices, PayPal payment function, expanded sound quality, performance optimisation and much more.
Thanks to Dolby Pulse®, at low data volumes JUKE surpasses the audio quality of all streaming services and all standard download portals, delivering CD-quality music. The sound quality has also been enhanced with a premium version on the web. JUKE streams faster, is stable, and ensures a fantastic, crystal clear listening experience. The smartphone and iPad app also make the user’s own playlists mobile and available offline (iOS and Android operating systems).
One of the things which consumers most appreciate about JUKE is the absence of advertising. In addition there are other indispensable features such as JUKE.fm radio stations and the marking of favourites in the MyJUKE area. There, one collects playlists, artists, albums and songs which are then loaded and made available for offline mode. This collection of favourites can now be synchronised to all end devices on which the JUKE app is installed, including the iPad.
Artists’ pages on the iPhone app have also been given a visual makeover, as has the “Similar Artists” function that recommends artists to suit the listener’s musical tastes, and represents a further gateway to the JUKE library which now contains over 18 million songs. Jukers can now also share information about the songs they have heard on Facebook and Twitter – but only if and when they want to. The iOS version is now perfectly customised for iPhone and iPad, with optimal design and all functions on both devices. The new iPad app in particular, however, offers users an intuitive and user friendly journey through the world music catalogue, thanks to the bigger screen design.
In addition to the technical advances, Jukers also can enjoy exclusive benefits of the service including a private, Nelly Furtado gig in Berlin on September 12 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-01fPE-xJmA). The gig will be Furtado’s only European performance until 2013 and will feature tracks from her upcoming new album, The Spirit Indestructable. A limited number of concert tickets were made available for jukers via the JUKE Facebook page under ‘Win’ at facebook.com/myjuke.
JUKE offers legal and unrestricted access to one of the world’s most comprehensive music libraries. Those who juke no longer need iPods, MP3 players or CDs. Jukers can access their favourite music via web, smartphone, tablets and connected hi-fi devices for a fee of EUR 9.99 per month: Simply surf myjuke.com, register and start juking!
