doubleTwist Enters Streamed-Music Fray with Magic Radio
doubleTwist today announced Magic Radio for Android smartphones, a new music-streaming service that offers personalized playlists for $3.99 per month. Magic Radio scans the user's existing music library and then creates playlists that include music from the user's library mixed with new tracks from its own library that Magic Radio thinks the user will like. The app offers ad-free listening; smart stations based on mood, genre, or keywords; tunable stations based on things such as tempo; and a media player that is integrated with the existing doubleTwist Player. According to doubleTwist, its library offers more than 13 million tracks, and the service is compatible with the MagicPlay open source audio streaming platform that doubleTwist developed with Qualcomm. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store beginning today.
