Amazon MP3. The app download, available now from BlackBerry App World, delivers Amazon's catalog of music with over 14 million songs, all of which can be downloaded either over-the-air or via Wi-Fi.RIM and Amazon have teamed up to launch a new mobile music application for BlackBerry smartphone users:
With the new mobile music app, BlackBerry owners can browse through Amazon's online catalog and listen to 30-second samples of music before purchasing. Songs can be bookmarked as favorites, so users can come back later to purchase if not ready to do so while browsing.
To promote sales, Amazon will offer a Free Song of the Day and a Daily Deal album, which, like Amazon MP3's online counterpart at Amazon.com/MP3, will be priced very low. How low? Today's Daily Deal album is only $3.99, to give you an idea.
Another feature in the new mobile music storefront is social sharing. Users can share their favorite songs via Facebook, Twitter, email, SMS, BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) or Social Feeds.
The service is integrated with the smartphone's features and functions, too, including Universal Search and Media Library.
To use the new Amazon MP3, users will need a BlackBerry smartphone running OS 5.0 or higher. If the device doesn't have internal memory, an SD card may be required. Interested users can download the app now from BlackBerry App World here.
