Business Wire LONDON -- December 05, 2012 7digital, the leading open digital music platform, today announced the integration of its popular music app for Android with Pioneer’s advanced AppRadio™ SPH-DA100 multimedia smartphone receiver. The Pioneer AppRadio 2 enables users to fully access and control the app directly on its large 7-inch capacitive touchscreen. With the 7digital Android™ app installed on a compatible Android smartphone, and connected to the Pioneer AppRadio 2 via CD-AH200C Android kit, users can access 7digital’s music store and their cloud locker directly from the vehicle’s dashboard. From the AppRadio 2 screen, users can browse, preview and purchase new music from 7digital’s 22 million track catalogue. Purchased music is automatically synced from the user’s cloud locker onto the smartphone device for instant playback in the car through the AppRadio receiver. The 7digital Android app has been customised specifically for use on Pioneer’s AppRadio to take advantage of its large 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and multi-touch interface. The app was built using 7digital’s API (application programming interface) and expands on the company’s existing presence in the automotive and in-car entertainment sector. “Our Android app has been integrated into all kinds of devices, including smartphones, tablets and connected TVs, and this version of the app for AppRadio provides a way to safely expand its use in the car environment”, comments Ben Drury, CEO at 7digital. “Working with a well known audio brand like Pioneer increases our reach to music fans, and brings more exposure to our music service in the automotive space.” “With 7digital, consumers can easily discover, buy, download and listen to music anywhere and, with the AppRadio 2, enjoy it on their car audio system while driving to their favourite destinations,” said Ronan McDonagh, General Manager Car Multimedia Technology Planning, Pioneer Europe.
