Android phones get We7 app

Android phones get We7 app

Music streaming service We7 has landed on Android phones, offering users the chance to store tracks on their handset and compile playlists to play later.

The Android edition of the application is free to trial for two weeks, after which a £9.99 per month subscription fee applies.

Like market rival Spotify, We7 features unlimited streaming of a library of six million songs and the option to store these on the handset for playback at a later date.

To mark the Android release, the app showcases an entirely revamped interface from that which debuted on the iPhone version in February and adds features such as recommendations and themed playlists.

Steve Purdham, Chief Executive Officer at We7, said: "We know that many consumers have been frustrated with mobile music apps in the past, generally, they download 'free apps' but cannot play songs without paying for a subscription.

"We wanted to resolve this, that's why we've included the free trial so users can sign up and immediately play music.

He added: "Users just need to go to The Android Marketplace and download it, we're confident that they'll love it!"

Last week, Spotify announced it now has 10 million users across Europe. A surge in demand for the service has been attributed to take-up from Android, Symbian and iPhone owners.
