Livewire Mobile (otcmarkets: LVWR), the one-stop digital content solutions provider for carriers, consumer device manufacturers, media companies, and consumers, has shaken up the traditional digital music store model with its new free Android discovery app, Rumpus.
Using multiple data sources to enhance its discovery technology for music, the app allows music fans to navigate their way through the tunes and artists they love and to re-connect with old favorites.
Smartphone users can now download Rumpus free from Google Play. The app is hooked into Livewire’s Mediadrome music backend, enabling users to discover music, bookmark artists and download from all the major labels and top independents.
The genius behind Rumpus is the unique way the millions of tracks in the Livewire Mobile database have been connected, so that users can search for artists or tracks and find all the relationships and information that make music discovery so addictive.The user, working over the top of this digital spider’s web, is steered through an easy and intuitive journey, seeing what other music was produced by a favorite artist, or how a tune or artist influenced others or was influenced by particular music. It then hooks together the music, videos, biographical information and imagery so the music fan can immerse themselves in the navigation and discovery experience. Matthew Stecker, CEO of Livewire Mobile, said: “Rumpus gives real music lovers what they have been demanding – a totally interactive and beautifully simple way of deep-diving into the complex world of music. There are millions of tracks out there and most music lovers only ever scratch the surface of what is available. Rumpus gives them the chance to go many levels deeper. “The app works perfectly, pulling together the data from many of the major music industry players behind the scenes so that we can seamlessly show music fans what links together artists, tunes and the musical inspirations behind them.”
