  • Prompt playback response
  • Sharing, listening to tracks through social networking
  • Exclusive interface page design for every normal user or fan
  • Creating artist profiles, track lists, genres and search criteria
  • Mobile user interface that allows easier user navigation


A platform was built with support for the latest Android versions with the following features:

  • Prefetching - Initially the track used to take time to play instantly. Prefetching prompted instant playback. For example, if you played one track on the platform, three other tracks got pre-fetched
  • HLS Streaming - HTTP Live Streaming or HLS for streaming to widest range of mobile devices. Another advantage, HLS can be deployed using most HTTP servers and commercial streaming servers like Adobe FMS
