Simplify Media’s Simplify Music 2.0 app lets you pick from many synced streams
April 30, 2009 by Arlen Schweiger

Here’s where a stream can turn into a flood, of music for your listening pleasure.

Simplify Media, a software provider that lets you sync your home computer’s and other users’ digital libraries, has made its Simplify Music 2.0 application available at the iTunes store.

For $2.99 (a “limited time” price), you can truly bloat your musical options—under one managed library umbrella, you can stream songs from your home computer’s digital music library as well as the libraries of up to 30 friends.

The app is also available for desktop computers, letting you stream iTunes and Windows Media Player libraries, and use WMP 11 to play remotely streamed music. Plus it connects to UPnP (universal plug and play) devices on your network, including Roku and Sonos systems.

With the iPhone/iPod touch app, the sound quality will be automatically adjusted based on the web connection, and you can search for artist, album and title across everything that’s synced so it’s like managing one massive song library.

Other goodies include the ability to tag favorites, whether in your personal library or friends’ collections, create playlists, and use a “scrub bar” to go forward or backward in a streamed podcast or ebook.

Simplify Media says the 2.0 app doesn’t require any configuration of firewalls or routers, and works over Wi-Fi, EDGE and 3G. Now you’ll be able to access your guilty pleasure songs, and hit up your friends’ 70s disco hits and 80s one-hit wonders too.
