SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced an expanded partnership with Lolay Inc., a premier mobile strategy development firm, to develop a series of Beamz apps that feature the company's proprietary interactive music technology across various mobile platforms, including iOS, Android and Windows RT.
To date Beamz and Lolay have collaborated on the successful development and launch of the following:
- a free Beamz iOS app to introduce users to Beamz;
- a paid Beamz By Flo iOS app to provide users with a rich music experience, complete with music from hip-hop sensation Flo Rida and other top artists; and
- an OS X application for desktops and laptops.
Going forward, Beamz and Lolay plan to capture additional market share by developing new apps for the Android and Windows RT platforms, in addition to making a variety of significant enhancements to the recently completed apps.
"We partnered with Lolay to help us bottle our dynamic Beamz technology into a fun mobile experience," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "We are pleased with the results for Beamz so far on iPhone and iPad. Lolay has developed apps for leading brands such as eHarmony, OpenTable, Thomson Reuters and Gifts.com and we continue to leverage Lolay's extensive experience as we prepare to enter the Android and Windows RT platforms. Now consumers can seamlessly play and record songs on-the-fly on their mobile devices, in a similar manner to moving their hands through the laser beams of our proprietary Beamz music player hardware."
Utilizing Beamz Interactive's proprietary software, users will now be able to enjoy the Beamz interactive music experience on their mobile devices without the need to connect to Beamz hardware. Each Beamz app lets users create their own custom version of some of today's most popular songs, then instantly record and share their songs with friends.
"We are extremely proud of our work with Beamz and their highly engaging technology," commented Bardia Dejban, Co-Founder of Lolay. "Not only is the app compelling, it's also social and collaborative. As our partnership matures, we are exploring additional longer term opportunities with Beamz to leverage their interactive music technology and drive their content to consumers on the devices they use the most -- smartphones and tablets."
Each of the Beamz apps come pre-packaged with numerous interactive songs, including various Beamz originals, as well as songs by today's top artists. Every Beamz song is technically developed so any sound or instrument selected will work together in time and on key. Based on Beamz' exclusive interactive music format, the Beamz apps offers users hours of fun playing, creating, listening, recording and sharing their own version of their favorite songs with friends.
Gary Rudolph, also Co-Founder of Lolay, concluded, "Working closely with Beamz, we have planned a rich roadmap of enhancements and innovative applications for both mobile and desktop. Our primary focus is to make the Beamz app content compelling and engaging, while also reaching the widest audience possible by deploying this same technology across other mobile platforms such as Android and Windows RT."
The Beamz apps include built-in functionality for users to purchase additional songs of their favorite artists, either individually or in bundles. Each Beamz app also has the ability to play hit music videos while the audio is manipulated by the user with various custom sound effects. Currently available on iPhone and iPad, the Beamz apps are expected on other mobile operating systems beginning in early 2014.
