ZOOZ Mobile Introduces Global Music Sharing, Dances to New Latin Beats

ZOOZbeat Songs Now Sharable via Facebook, Twitter; ZOOZbeat Classic 2.0 and Latin Available on iTunes

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - ZOOZ Mobile, Inc., developers of the first mobile music studio, ZOOZbeat, today announced the availability of myZOOZbeat.com and ZOOZbeat Latin as part of a major upgrade to its popular ZOOZbeat product family. myZOOZbeat.com enables users to save the music they create with ZOOZbeat on the iPhone and iPod Touch as MP3s, and share them using Facebook® and Twitter®. Users can also listen to songs uploaded by their friends, and to special featured and recent songs from users around the world. The company also announced the availability of ZOOZbeat Latin, which allows the creation of songs with Samba and Tejano rhythms, just in time for Cinqo de Mayo.

ZOOZbeat is a gesture-based mobile music studio, simple enough for non-musicians and children to immediately become musically expressive, yet rich enough for experienced musicians to push the envelope of mobile music creation. The new offerings are the next generation of the company's integrated web and mobile music studio for creating, manipulating and sharing music. ZOOZbeat Latin lists on the iTunes™ AppStore for $0.99; version 2.0 of ZOOZbeat Classic, containing Pop, Hip-hop and Techno beats, lists for $2.99.

"Our early users requested new Latin beats, plus the ability to save their music as MP3s," said Dr. Gil Weinberg, ZOOZ Mobile's Founder and Chief Technology Officer. "We spent the last several months creating the new beats, improving responsiveness, and building myZOOZbeat.com. Now users can save their music as MP3's and share it with their friends on Facebook and Twitter."

"The company's first products were made available on the iTunes AppStore in November 2008," said Scott Geller, the company's new CEO. "Since then there have been over 1,000,000 downloads of ZOOZbeat products. Response to the highly acclaimed music applications and content has been wildly enthusiastic. So we're excited to introduce our next iteration, which is better than ever. We're sure this version will encourage adults and children, musicians and non-musicians alike to express themselves through music, right from their mobile devices."

How ZOOZbeat Works:

ZOOZbeat can be used on the iPhone and iPod Touch. After downloading the app from the iTunes App Store, start playing with just a click or select from among provided background beats in multiple styles. Use shake and tilt movements or tap the screen to create and modify rhythmic and melodic lines. Sing or talk into the phone and ZOOZbeat fits vocals into the music. Replay, modify, and transform the creation with fun effects. Upload songs to the web for listening, downloading and sharing music in MP3 format. Listen to live streams of pieces created by friends and others who have uploaded their ZOOZbeat creations. For a demonstration, visit http://www.zoozmobile.com/zoozbeat.htm
