PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 18, 2013) - Axwave Inc., creator of GSOUND, the newest, most innovative mobile app to bring people closer to the movies, music and TV shows they love, today announced that only three weeks after its launch in the Apple App Store, the app is ranked third among all apps downloaded related to music and song recognition.

"We are impressed with the desire of iOS users who are seeking out a better and more visually pleasing way to experience what they're listening to," said Axwave CEO Damián A. Scavo, "Since the release of the beta version of GSOUND for iOS, users are finding it to be their go to app for song recognition and finding lyrics, and that's just the beginning."

Scavo added that the app is gaining in popularity among all apps in the following areas in downloads in less than one month:

  • Ranked #1 in movie ID and movie recognition

GSOUND is a mobile app that enables users to identify and purchase music by recording just a few seconds of what's being heard. The beta version of GSOUND, now available for free download in Apple's iOS App Store, is the most visually pleasing app of its kind and allows users to identify and get more information about the music they're listening to. Future versions of GSOUND will integrate improved movie and TV show recognition as well.

Axwave also announced that it has secured agreements with LyricFind and 7digital to enhance GSOUND's lyric and song finding capabilities. GSOUND uses LyricFind to ensure that any songs identified using the app also show the actual lyrics to the song. Axwave's partnership with 7digital allows GSOUND to access one of the world's largest libraries of licensed digital music.

According to Scavo, "With partners like LyricFind and 7digital, we're able to provide a real-time identification platform for the on-demand entertainment age. GSOUND users are already proving to be passionate about what they're hearing. We're committed to embracing that passion and making music even more accessible."

Axwave has had a very busy month. In addition to the successful launch of GSOUND and its new partnerships, Axwave announced an increase in its seed round of funding by $400,000. This funding enables Axwave to focus on expanding GSOUND's capabilities. This $400,000 in additional financing brings the total company funds raised to $800,000.
