LyricFind Brings Popular Lyrics Application to the PlayBook
TORONTO, CANADA – August 30, 2011 – LyricFind, the world’s leading provider of legal lyrics services, is today excited to announce that it is bringing its highly successful lyrics application to the BlackBerry® PlayBook™. The app is the first legal lyrics application for the Playbook, opening up a huge amount of content for Playbook users.
LyricFind’s iPhone applications, named “Lyrics Lite” and “Lyrics Pro”, have been wildly popular, receiving over 4 million downloads since their launch in April 2009. The apps have maintained their position as
the #1 lyrics applications on the iOS platform.
The new release takes full advantage of the PlayBook’s large screen and tablet form factor, providing a beautiful interface designed from the ground up to make finding lyrics easier and faster than ever. The application provides access to LyricFind’s massive (and growing) database of over 1.5 million lyrics, representing over 40,000 artists and 200,000 albums, which is the largest legal collection available today. Users can also access artist images and bios, discographies, and album art, plus see charts of the top lyrics and artists across LyricFind’s entire network of hundreds of sites. Lyrics are searchable by artist, song name, and even the lyrics themselves (for those times when you’ve got a song running through your head and have no idea what it is!). Finally, users can bookmark their favourite lyrics, for easy retrieval later, on or offline.
LyricFind’s PlayBook app, named “LyricFind”, is available on BlackBerry® AppWorld today for $2.99.
“We are excited to be the first to bring a high quality, legal lyrics application to the PlayBook”, said Darryl Ballantyne, LyricFind’s CEO. “The PlayBook is a top-notch device with an excellent media experience, and enjoying lyrics alongside your music is a key component to a complete music experience.”
LyricFind offers the world’s largest and highest quality database of song lyrics, with licensing from all major publishers (EMI, Warner-Chappell, Universal/BMG, and Sony/ATV), as well as thousands of independent publishers. LyricFind’s database also powers services such as Microsoft’s Bing, Lyrics.com, Slacker, Shazam, LyricsMode, Universal Music Group, and many more.
