Remember those days when Kazaa helped searched for your favorite artist through its file sharing site? Well, the most popular peer to peer music piracy service just announced its brand new iPhone app.
If you’re a musician out there, need not worry, because this app is far from what Kazaa used to represent. There isn’t any stealing going on here, instead there is an app which mimics Spotfiy’s $9.99 all-you-can-eat music subscription service, which lets you stream and download as much music as possible on your computer or mobile device. And just like Spotfiy, you get a seven day free trial included with the app to test out the service.
Also worth noting is how users can create and share playlists, as well as keep an eye on hot music topping the charts. Unfortunately, Kazaa’s app doesn’t have anything to differentiate it from the likes of Spotify, Rdio and Mog. With so much competition out there, it’s meant to be seen whether Kazaa survives or not.
Kazaa’s service is only accessible in the United States and the app isn’t yet optimized for use on the iPad. The company says support for more devices is in the works, according to Reuters.
Would you give Kazaa’s iPhone app a test run?
