Online music retail outfit 7digital has updated its official Android app with an integrated download store, allowing users to purchase songs in a single click.
Up until now, the free-to-download app, available in 16 countries worldwide, was only able to sync (over cloud) music users had already purchased from 7digital on desktop or other devices, organise them using customisable playlists and play back tracks using the built-in music player.
However, the improved service means that music lovers can now browse the etailer’s entire 13 million-strong catalogue right on their smartphone or tablet and make their purchase directly from the one-click MP3 shop.
7digital CEO Ben Drury, said: “The Android application allows our customers to access and purchase high quality MP3 music, wherever they are, on their mobile or tablet device.
“The latest version of the application provides a full music experience for Android users, combining all the features of an integrated download store with a cloud player that allows users to access and sync new and purchased tracks with their device.”
A 30-second preview is available for most tunes to try before you buy. Songs that are downloaded over 3G have slightly lower bitrate of 160kbps, while downloading over Wi-Fi ensures higher quality at 320kbps.
7digital for Android is available to download right now from the Android Market. However, minimum software requirement dictates your device be running at least Android 2.1 and above to use the app.
