SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) - Polkast, a service that connects computers to mobile devices, enabling fast and easy access to large files, today announced Polkast Music, providing instant, on-demand access to your entire iTunes music collection, from anywhere, on any iOS or Android device. The Polkast Music app is available in the Google Play Store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.polkastmusic and the iTunes App Store here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/polkast-music-your-entire/id560875729?ls=1&mt=8.
Mobile devices often lack the capacity to store the volume of songs most music lovers hold in their music library. Sync software is limited by the device capacity. We end up syncing selected albums and listening to the same playlists over and over again. Then when we are in a certain mood or are reminded of an old favorite, we don't have the music we want. Polkast Music solves that problem, delivering on-demand mobile access to every song, album and playlist in your iTunes library.
"Many hardcore music lovers have spent years curating a collection that includes lossless files, live shows, eclectic recordings and many other tracks that are impossible to find and access using streaming services like Spotify and Rdio," said Hong Bui, CEO and Founder of Polkast. "Once you've paid for music, why pay again to stream what you already own? Polkast Music gives listeners the ability to access every playlist and track in their iTunes collection whenever, wherever they like, filling a massive hole in the digital music ecosystem."
Polkast Music is easy to install and use. Just download Polkast Music on your iOS or Android device, then install the Polkast homebase desktop companion app on your Mac or Windows PC, and login. Polkast Music will connect securely and directly to your computer for immediate access to your entire music collection. There is no lengthy upload process to get started as with iTunes Match and Google Music.
