I've had the pleasure of testing out Gidilounge's new music streaming platform gPlayer and let me tell you that it is 100% a GAME changer for African music, much like their Gidilounge Radio was and still is. The new streaming platform launches on June 1. Read on for more information
"Gidilounge has consistently been the one of the largest online media outlets for fans to keep up with their favorite music, stars and their happenings. Gidilounge has consistently pushed the envelop with developing new technologies for the African digital music space from our music player to online radio to mobile apps. Africans globally have embraced us and this demand made us take a fresh look at things, and inspired us to take a new approach to it.
At Gidilounge, we are very passionate about building products that have a direct impact. We have developed and will be releasing a new music streaming platform, "gPlayer", which will be available on the web and all mobile platforms (iOS, BlackBerry, Windows 8 and Android smartphones and tablets). Both the web and mobile app share a consistent UI and design.
The gPlayer is an upgraded version of our Gidilounge music player. The new music streaming platform will allow users to discover, listen and share music like never before. Users can search for artists, songs and also browse and create playlists, save their favorites, listen to our ready-made music lounges and launch our radio station, Gidilounge Radio. Independent artists, DJs and Labels will be able to upload their own music and content." - Gidilounge Press Office#Peace.Love.gPlayer
