Thumbplay Music Store Launches On BlackBerry App World!

Thumbplay Music Store!

Thumbplay has been around for a while as a content provider for such things as ringtones, real tones and games and have now launched their music download service within BlackBerry App World. The application itsself is free to download to your device but costs associated from the use of the app come from downloading full length MP3 Quality, DRM Free music files to your device, all of which can be played on mp3 players, your PC and of course your BlackBerry.

All songs are downloaded via WiFi for faster delivery or over 3G, EDGE and with music starting at $0.69 and going up from there the service is a cost effective way to get your music on the go. Paypal and debit cards are accepted for the payment processing so that makes it just that much easier.

The application itself is nice. Once downloaded and installed to your BlackBerry you can preview songs directly from it which makes accidental purchases of bad music impossible. So there goes my excuse for having Taylor Swift on my BlackBerry. ;)

Topics: BlackBerry Apps



Blaize...there is absolutely nothing wrong with having Taylor Swift's music on you're phone. As long as it's not the only music on you're phone.


Haha! I was just joking anyways...I agree with ya totally :)


so i dont blame fact, i respect you even more

as long as you have "you belong with me"


People pay for music?



But, of course I cannot find a single Arabic pop song listed in the store :(


It would take an awful lot of effort to pick a worse selection of music to advertise it.


Not available for Rogers in Canada.


I think songs on iTunes is cheaper and of better playback quality. Where I come from in Malaysia, there is a local carrier recently offering unlimited songs downloads for MYR5.00 (US$1.43) per month. That's called value!


Just another useless app.


I will not say useless...there is an app for everyone. There are people who prefer to do things legally with all the lawsuits by the RIAA going around


We all need good country instead of the "Crap" that hip hop brings to the table. "Babies Mothers" Instead of fathers. "Pimps & Ho's" Is a better option? I think not.


Where is the rock music? When I go to "genre" click "rock" and Mariah Carey is #1, um, wow... I feel like I waisted time downloading this app. I hope they make major music updates.


I'm wondering if the App World itself will begin to offer a music library? I would also like to see the App World get into the movies, videos, and podcasts as well. Let's give itunes some competition.


No Van Halen or Metallica? Fail!


ummmm a music app to challenge iTunes...interesting will check it out once I'm home see if it have a PC counter part to go with it.

Does anyone thing this app will take off with all the illegal downloading (not accusing anyone). I heard that only 45% of iTunes users purchase music


Yet another app to join the myriad of others on the scrap pile due to US only restriction.

Nowhere on its front page does it state US only.

Pasted below is the tiny bit concerning non US usage from thier T&Cs.
