Posted by at 12:15 pm on July 29, 2010

ParkVu today announced new features and significant user experience enhancements for the Music  WithMe BlackBerry app. Simplifying music listening for a new generation of music lovers who want all their music on their smartphone, anytime, anywhere, Music  WithMe wirelessly syncs users’ iTunes playlists with their BlackBerry, via a cellular or Wi-Fi connection. No longer tethered to cables or a secondary music playing device, Music  WithMe provides an easy way for smartphone owners to have their favorite music with them on the go.

“The user response we’ve received since launch has been phenomenal. BlackBerry owners love that they can get all their iTunes music on their smartphone wirelessly — and they can use their BlackBerry media player for playback,” said  Jeff Fedor, co-CEO of ParkVu. “With the user in mind we have introduced new features to Music  WithMe including an enhanced sync experience, making it even easier for BlackBerry owners to leave their digital music player at home and use their smartphone as their primary music listening device.”

Using a cellular network or Wi-Fi connection, Music  WithMe automatically and wirelessly downloads music files from users’ iTunes collection to their BlackBerry smartphone. Now with the latest version, BlackBerry owners can track the status of their downloads. For each playlist, for example, users can see how many tracks have been uploaded to the cloud and how many have yet to be uploaded from iTunes. In addition, Music  WithMe now has the ability to sync music libraries that are stored in network attached storage locations.

Music  WithMe allows for remote wireless syncing and, unlike streaming solutions, once music is downloaded, no wireless connection is required meaning no more data is used — saving money and battery power and providing a dependable music listening experience regardless of cellular reception. Tracks are downloaded directly to the BlackBerry memory card and are played as usual.

From within the app, users select which iTunes playlists they want stored on their BlackBerry smartphone. Music  WithMe then works with iTunes on the PC to ensure that any changes made to the playlists are automatically reflected on their BlackBerry smartphone.

Music  WithMe does not have to be open on the device to sync with iTunes. When the desired playlists are selected, the settings are stored directly on the BlackBerry smartphone. Using BlackBerry smartphone’s native media player, users can listen to their favorite songs from iTunes directly on their device.

Music WithMe New Features

  • Playlist status display — Number of playable tracks, not supported tracks (video or DRM protected), tracks in the cloud, tracks needed from iTunes, tracks that cannot be found
  • Support for music libraries that are stored in network attached storage locations
  • Support for playlists with duplicate names — user added “audiobooks” or “recently added” playlist
  • Playlist selection preserved across devices and if app is reinstalled
  • Support for iTunes playlist folders

Availability

Music  WithMe is available at BlackBerry App World for a one-time fee of  $14.99 after a free 30-day trial.
