Bono Predicted It, Soundwave Built It and Steve Wozniak Loves It!
Soundwave Lets Users Discover New Music as Quickly as It's Played by
Allowing Them to Instantly See What Music Friends, Family and
Favorites Are Listening to
DUBLIN, IRELAND and SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/13 --
Launching today, Soundwave is a music-discovery app with a
difference, that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak calls "a music
product that so perfectly fits my life." Available for free on iOS
and Android, Soundwave tracks what users are listening to in their
native music apps, as well as through streaming services like Spotify
and Rdio. The information appears in the Soundwave feed as it
happens, providing a window into the user's music world -- showing
what their friends and those they follow are listening to right now.
Coupled with the innovative music-pulling technology -- the
Ireland-based Soundwave team has also been working on a unique twist
to location-based discovery -- allowing users to instantly see what
songs are playing at any location (country, city, street, building)
simply by drawing a circle over a location of their choosing with
their finger to see in real time what songs are playing, and the
top-played songs for that area.
Unlike typical music apps that aim to promote manual sharing, the
Soundwave app has the unique ability to pull in a user's plays
without disrupting regular listening habits.
To mark the launch, Soundwave will hold an event in London next week
at Apple's flagship Regent Street store. Joining the Soundwave team
to celebrate is actor Stephen Fry -- early adopter and Soundwave app
Soundwave is set to disrupt the music industry with its ability to
track in real time what people are actually listening to --
much-needed data for an industry that is suffering from a shortage.
In a recent interview, Bono declared, "In a time soon coming, we will
actually get to understand what people are listening to as opposed to
buying. Wouldn't you love to actually be able to find out what people
are actually listening to? That's going to change the game for
According to the Soundwave founders, that time is now. Founding CEO
Brendan O'Driscoll says, "Ultimately we can serve up much-needed data
to the music industry allowing them to hone and ultimately craft a
superior experience for that end listener and fan in what some are
calling a 'Google Analytics for Music.'"
