NML App for Android Goes Live 12.27.10

We've heard that some people (clearly silly ones) think that classical music is behind the times.
We, keepers of the NML, disagree.
We think you should be able to listen to a Barbara Strozzi aria or a Mahler symphony just as easily as a Janelle Monae album. So we continue to work on making our music as mobile as possible.

You probably already know about our apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch--but Apple Resisters can now prepare to rejoice, because...

The Naxos Music Library App for Android will go live on December 27, 2010!

You will be able to listen to personal, institutional, and Naxos-created playlists as well as browse and stream the full NML on the go from your Droid!

Just search the Android Market for "Naxos Music Library" to download the free app!

Once the app is installed, it's time to make sure you have some playlists!

Institutional Users

1. Visit the NML. If you are a member of an institution like a school, university, or public library, you can visit your institution’s unique webpage (ex. Ask your librarian or contact us here at Naxos if you’re not sure how to get there.

2. Navigate to the Playlists tab and sign up for a Student/Member Playlist Account. You will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you used to sign up. Click the link in the e-mail to confirm your account.

3. The login you created for your Student/Member Playlist Account will be your login for the app as well.

4. Any playlist in your personal folder or your institution’s folder will be available, in addition to all of our Naxos-created playlists. You can also browse and stream the full NML--from New Releases and Recent Additions to any old recording from any label--anytime, anywhere.

Individual Users.

You will not need to adjust anything to use the app. Just use your normal NML login to log in to the app!

We'd like to also take a moment to give a big thank you to our developers. The app works and looks great--all that hard work has paid off. So THANK YOU!

As always, if you have any questions or need help with the app, please call or e-mail me!

In the meantime, check out these action shots.
