SPIN Play iPad App Becomes Even More Awesome

Groundbreaking app updated with amazing new capabilities for iOS 5

In March, SPIN and Bottle Rocket Apps revolutionized the way people interact with music on their iPads with SPIN Play, a music discovery app that combines song streams, video clips, daily music news, and cutting-edge journalism into a fun, easy-to-use experience. As of today, that experience got even more awesome.

A new version of SPIN Play is now available that’s updated for iOS 5. The biggest news: It’ll be available on Newsstand, Apple’s new hub for digital publications. As fresh editions of SPIN are released, subscribers will get an alert and see SPINs appear in their Newsstand folders, ready to go — including the latest cover.

SPIN Play 2.0’s new features include push notification capability, news photo galleries, Twitter single sign-on, and increased stability. You can also listen to music while the issue downloads, download more than one issue at a time, and keep on downloading while SPIN Play is in the background. And you can venture into rock stars’ private sanctuaries with In My Room, now with pop-up captions.

The price of SPIN Play ranges from $1.99 (in-app purchase) to $7.99 (annual subscription) and it includes more than 60 streaming songs and over 30 streaming videos curated by your beloved SPIN staff in addition to full magazine editions. Grab it now at the App Store.
