Yep, many changes have taken place on Twusic.com lately and things keep on shaking on for us… and for you!
But first, a little flashback about Twusic, the adventure, the people!
As you know, Twusic is a home-made product (no really: “HOME-MADE”! Hot-from-my-desk-stuck-between-the-wall-and-the-couch-in-my-living-room home-made!) developed in Brussels, Belgium by its two co-founders, Alexis and Amaury.
Since then joined by Michele, asta___, MissKatastroff and others, the adventure really began for us in June 2011 with the creation of our company LemonLab, editor for Twusic.com.
Beta Twusic was born on June, 30 during the 2011 spring session of the Founder Institute Brussels which we won (that’s us here, proud.).
2500 beta testers, 200 days of non-stop music and no less than at least 20 media sources talking about Twusic later, we were invited to present our project at the EBE11 in Sevilla.
Strengthened (and straightened) by your feedback on testing the beta version, we were ready to introduce you to Twusic, Release 1, your own personal radio, with which you’re by now familiar…or so we hope… ;)
So what happened between the beta and release1?
To begin, you might not have known our beta version but we’ve greatly enhanced our user experience by creating a whole new interface!
And who says “new interface” means many, many, many new features! :
First, the sweet candy “tweet button” now available on your menu bar allows you to share the content you’re viewing in a single click! Easy as pie!
Also, “User Friendly” is even more so your radio station’s middle name !
You can now replace the videos that do not fit your played selection, manage your playlists, add favorites, and a whole lot more! Managing your online music feed has never been easier.
Next, once the Twusic app is released, your radio stream will be continuously fed by your #nowplaying tweets, whichever the source from!
Oh and please don’t hesitate to check out the interactive tour-guide available on the top bar… ;)
Well, after our rewarding experience at the Founder Institute EBE11, we are proud, thrilled and honored to have been selected to compete as finalists in the MIDEMLAB during the 2012 Midem taking place in Cannes this month!!
As one of the select-few musical universal gourous, the Midem, is THE music event taking place every year.
So, new version or new features?
Well, to be honest, a bit of both… but let’s start with the news, shall we?!
Challenge your friends and prove you’re an expert by answering our new quiz’s questions correctly !
There is something great in there and, we’re sure, this new radio will be a pleaser!
Discover Twusicology, the radio that offers you a compilation of artists and songs pre-selected according to your musical taste!
And about the new version?
No, not another release at this time, promise!, but we’re baking you a nice surprise to be made available soon!…
In short, (many thanks to our friends at Techcrunch France),
discover our new interface and features,
and join us in Cannes in January at MIDEM,
while we continue working hard on improving Twusic to best meet your needs!
See you soon!
