*Live* - NML iPhone App - Version 2.0

I'm such a geek for updates. Really. I am guilty of hitting that "Refresh" button on just about every page, hoping for something new. The good news, is that we actually have a VERY cool update to share with everyone!

The NML iPhone App has been so well received (and we THANK YOU!!!), that we couldn't just stop there. There was so much more that could be done! Well, see below for some great screenshots of the new NML iPhone App 2.0.

** Version 2.0 is now Live! Visit the App Store, or click the link below to update your version!**

That shouldn't stop us from updating you though? Right? :) If you don't have the current NML iPhone app, click the link below to download it now!

Version 2.0 of the app will still allow you to view your custom, individual playlists, as well as the professor/administrator created ones. Those menu's received a slight "Texture" update. I'm a fan of the new buttons!

Not sure about what to listen to? Soon , there will be some "Naxos" created playlists too! These will also start to appear on the "Web-Based" NML pages too, so keep your eyes peeled!

Who knows, we may even hold contests for our readers to submit playlists! Thinks like composer or period specific playlists are always great!

If you're following us on Twitter or Facebook, you may have seen my love for Steve Reich. Ever since my Musicology research paper in college, I've had a soft spot in my musical heart for his music. Hence my 4 differnet Steve Reich compilation playlists.

The same goes for my hopeful inclusion of a "Marimba" playlist. (being a percussionist)

Quick! How many drummers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Answer: Five. One to screw the bulb in, and four to talk about how much better Neil Peart could have done it.

Har Har Har - now back to the Updates!

Thanks to for the Friday Funny.

The next "button" on our stop, is the Catalog button. This menu brings up a simple search bar. Essentially, it performs a keyword search within the Naxos Music Library and displays the results on your iPhone/iPod Touch!

Searching for "Brahms" brings up this window ----------------->

The next window brings up a track listing, as well as the album description. See below for another side-by-side set of screenshots.

<------- This appears at the Top of an Album Page

This appears at the bottom of a Album's Page -------->
(simply scroll down to the bottom of the track listing)

The player window remains unchanged, except for the fact that you can now hit the "Back" button, navigate to a new piece, scroll, browse..etc... all while the music plays!
If you couldn't tell, we're really excited about this new version! If you have any questions, need help creating playlists, or simply want to chat, feel free to call or write anytime!

Happy Updates!

  1. Looks awesome! Is there anyway to get the beta version to my iPod before you release the full version?
    Thanks! Christian
