Hands-on with iHeartRadio’s iPad 3 update

Right on the heels of one of their biggest competitors (and best buddy Spotify), Clear Channel have updated their iPad app for iHeartRadio. This upgrade to the streaming radio application has you working with deeper Facebook integration than ever before, support for the high-resolution Retina display of Apple's iPad 3 with much better looking radio station graphics as well as user interface graphics, and Custom Stations. These Custom Stations are made up of the users own collected interests and a catalog of over 14 million songs from over 400,000 artists.

Rdio launches in UK and France

Spotify might be building up some momentum in the United States, but it’s easy to forget that Rdio has its own significant streaming presence too. Previously restricted to the US and a handful of other countries, the service is now available in the UK and France starting from today. As always seems to be the case when it comes to international licenses, the content isn’t quite as good as the US version, but it’s better than nothing, right?

Spotify for iPad arrives fashionably late

It's time to party with the Spotify app for iPad, this being one of the last giant platforms for the application in its mobile form and certainly a beast of a battleground for the big green streaming music group. You've got several new elements coming your way for any iPad, but of course this application has been fine-tuned for the iPad 3, starting with Retina-quality graphics.

Spotify’s ICS upgrade brings the heat, we go hands-on

Spotify’s ICS upgrade brings the heat, we go hands-on

It's time to have a look at the upgrade Spotify promised us this morning with a basic hands-on - will it live up to the hype? And more importantly perhaps, will it be worth the wait? Users used to getting updates to their apps several times a month have been a bit baffled for several months now since Spotify launched in the USA and their Premium service (which includes this Android app) has gone relatively un-noticed by the developers who created it, or so it seemed - until now.

It looks pretty swish too.

President Obama posts his Spotify 2012 Campaign Playlist

President Obama posts his Spotify 2012 Campaign Playlist

As the 2012 election season for the President of the United States comes down upon is in a hailstorm of advertisements and pushes to do the right thing, so too do the brand collaborations begin - right here with Spotify. Though we've already seen the President go on Google+ to do a fireside chat after his State of the Union address just a few days ago, this is the first real place, I'd say, we're seeing Obama really jam on the youth-tip to get back in touch with the citizens of the United States so they can vote for him in 2012. While Barack Obama has never been one to get too far away from this environment, you're going to see one whole heck of a lot more of this tech-related business as the elections come up - what better way to start than with some Spotify music?

Judge denies EMI’s request for preliminary injunction against ReDigi

Judge denies EMI’s request for preliminary injunction against ReDigi

Record label EMI has taken a company called ReDigi to court for copyright infringement charges alleging that it makes unauthorized copies of songs for its music reselling business. ReDigi is a website where music fans can go and sell digital tracks that they no longer want.

The idea is that the music listed for resell is then no longer in possession of the original owner, much the same way selling a used CD works.

Spotify closes 2.5 million paying subscribers

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Spotify has closed 2.5 million paying subscribers for its online music streaming service. While there weren't details released by the company about its subscribers' geographical locations, how long it took, or how many free users there were, it’s nonetheless an impressive feat, especially in this era where music can be easily attainable for little to no cost, well, pretty much, free. Spotify has done a good job persuading customers to actually pay for it. And they do so by providing a seriously killer music service.
