Utilizing Beamz Interactive's proprietary software, users can now enjoy the Beamz interactive music experience on an iPhone and iPad touch screen as well as with the Beamz. They can also create their own custom version of some of today's most popular songs, then instantly record and share their songs with friends.
"We are thrilled to announce that Apple has approved the Beamz iOS app," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "This will further enhance the great music experience of our Beamz by Flo products, and has the potential to provide another substantial revenue generation channel for our company.

The Beamz app includes 9 pre-packaged songs, plus an additional 20 songs when connected to the Beamz by Flo hardware, as well as built-in functionality for users to purchase additional songs of their favorite artists, either individually or in bundles. The Beamz app also has the ability to play hit music videos on the high-res screen of an iPhone or iPad while the audio is dynamically being played by the user with various custom sound effects. An exciting original music video by Billboard Top 100 artist Flo Rida, created exclusively for Beamz, will be included when the app is connected to the Beamz by Flo product.
"With the Beamz app consumers can seamlessly play and record songs on-the-fly using their iPhone or iPad, in a similar manner to moving their hands through the laser beams of the Beamz music player hardware," said Al Ingallinera, Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive.
