Wye Valley UK, — Building on the success of its mobile/wireless applications for handheld devices, Electric Pocket announces the launch of its new Busker MP3 player for Palm OS PDAs and smartphones. Busker enables Palm OS users to play MP3 tunes stored on a SD card and features a bold, bright and easy-to-use interface that provides the user with the fastest way available to access the tunes list and begin playing their favorite songs.
Electric Pocket has spent the past seven years at the forefront of developing software applications for mobile/wireless devices with a focus on easy, fun-to-use experiences for consumers. The company’s formula-for-success has been put to use once again with the release of Busker. Among MP3 players available for Palm OS devices, Busker stands alone with its simplicity and elegant design.
The major components to Busker are all focused on ease-of-use. A key feature is QuickMix, a simple, one-step operation to play a mix of songs, while Busker Favorites offers a list of favorite songs that can be played with a single tap of the stylus.
Busker enables users to take full advantage of the high resolution color displays on newer PDAs and smartphones by displaying Album Art pictures for MP3 tracks. Album Art is a picture which can be embedded within each MP3 file. Busker is the only Palm OS MP3 player to display Album Art images onscreen while playing the song.
“Our goal with Busker was to produce a very easy-to-use MP3 player for Palm OS, enabling the user to simply insert a memory card and begin playing music very quickly and easily,” said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s co-founder and Chief Products Officer. “QuickMix is a feature we are particularly pleased with, enabling users to launch Busker and, with a single tap, have an instant mix of their favorite music playing.”
