CasaTunes Introduces New BlackBerry App and Updates Android Control App
Android App Offers True Tablet Experience
FT. COLLINS, Colo. -- July 3, 2013
CasaTunes®, the leader in streaming multi-room music solutions, today
announced a new control app for BlackBerry and important updates to its
Android app. Designed for the Z10, the BlackBerry app controls a CasaTunes
system playing music in any room of the house.
“CasaTunes is once again leading the industry with the first app designed for
BlackBerry users to control their whole house music system,” said David
Krinker, CEO of CasaTunes.
The updated Android App from CasaTunes features a CasaTunes Dream for the
Android Daydream feature. The 4.2 or later Android device displays cover art
and images of the artist that is playing in the room along with the time of
day when docked during Daydream mode.
“CasaTunes was the first of the multi-room companies to have an Android app, a
true Android Tablet app and an Android Widget – and now we can add CasaTunes
Dream for Android Daydream to the list,” said Krinker.
For faster initial set-up, the updated CasaTunes Android app finds the music
server faster with ZeroConfig. The updated app also delivers tablet features
to any size modern Android device including the smaller 4.3” version. Even
when using an Android phone, with Android 3.1 or later, the CasaTunes app is
able to offer a true tablet experience for Android users.
To use any CasaTunes app, choose the room and then quickly search and select
songs by album, artist, genre, song title or play list. Music can be played
from your music library from your computer, phone or tablet, or any of
themusic services built into CasaTunes, such as Spotify, Last.fm, TuneIn
Radio and SHOUTcast. Schedules can be created for falling asleep or waking up
to music. Homeowners can listen to a different playlist in each room and all
speakers are continuously synchronized without any echoes. In addition to the
new BlackBerry and updated Android apps, homeowners can also use the CasaTunes
iPhone and iPad Apps, a web browser or keypads.
The new BlackBerry app can be found at BlackBerry World and the updated
Android app can be downloaded at the PlayStore.
