We7 Launches App For Android Phones

UK-based music streaming service We7 has launched an application for Android-based mobile phones, offering it as a free trial for two weeks.

The release follows the launch of a similar We7 application for Apple’s iOS in February 2010, the Telegraph reports.

“We love giving people access to their favourite music and enabling them to consume it, wherever and however they want it. The new Android app version continues to extend our mobile strategy," said We7 chief executive officer Steve Purdham.

The app is available for a subscription fee of £10 per month for access to six million music tracks, however the two weeks trial subscription is free of cost. The service to stream or cache music will be open to users who subscribe to the Premium Plus plan.

The Android app differs from the iPhone version in its new user interface, support for haptic feedback, an offline mode that allows users to play tracks without internet access, and themed playlists available with sync capabilities.
