CloudTrade launches beta music sharing service for smartphones
CloudTrade. the social network which allows people to share video and music content online and potentially rack up points for popular content and interacting with advertisers, has announced its beta music sharing service, currently offering around 250 music tracks from the two record labels it has signed up.
It’s another service offering free content in exchange for watching ads, and is being targeted at the younger generation who typically have a lot of time and interest in new music, but no money.
The system currently only works on Windows Mobile smartphones, but users don’t also require a computer or credit card in order to use the service. In time, it will be rolled out to BlackBerries and other mobile operating systems. How many teens have a BlackBerry, eh?
Music currently available includes ATO Records’ Ben Kweller, Gomez, The Whigs and Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Sci Fidelity Records’ entire catalog of jam-band music. Negotiations with the likes of Universal Music Group are in progress, apparently. If that’s successful, it could really push up the number of tracks available, and CloudTrade’s profile.
