MusicMatch Inc., the global leader in personalized music software and services, today announced that its number-one selling music software, MusicMatch Jukebox, will ship with Apple’s iPod for Windows to bring the iPod digital music experience to PC users.
Previously available only to Mac users, iPod is Apple’s digital music player that allows users to carry their entire music collection in their pocket and take it with them anywhere.
“Apple’s iPod is the ultimate digital music device for any music lover,” said Peter Csathy, president of MusicMatch. “We’re excited to work with Apple to bring the unmatched combination of iPod and MusicMatch Jukebox to all music fans.”
“For the first time Windows users can enjoy Apple’s iPod, the world’s best digital music player,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “MusicMatch Jukebox is the best choice to provide PC users with a great experience to manage their music from a PC and take it all with them wherever they go on their iPod.”
MusicMatch Jukebox, the most widely distributed music software on portable devices, is integrated to work seamlessly with Apple’s iPod. After simply plugging iPod into the PC, MusicMatch automatically launches, and all songs and playlists are automatically transferred to the iPod and kept up to date whenever the iPod is plugged in. Users can choose to manage their music between MusicMatch and iPod using Apple’s AutoSync technology, or manually transfer individual songs or playlists.
MusicMatch Jukebox has won more reviews and awards than any other media player and is considered the “gold standard” by industry influencers for its innovative and personalized features. With these award-winning music management features, music lovers can now play, rip (record), burn and transfer all their music from their PC digital library to the iPod.
Available this August, iPod for Windows will ship with MusicMatch Jukebox to provide Windows users with the groundbreaking features and capabilities of the iPod.
