Andromo App Maker for Android is pleased to introduce a new way for bands and musicians to create a fully-customized Android app in minutes – for free. There’s no coding required, and everything is done online, so there’s nothing to download or install. It’s a fully point-and-click visual app creator.
Having an Android app to promote a band is just as important as having a website. With over 300 million Android devices worldwide and 850,000 new devices activated each day, musicians can’t afford to ignore this potential for promoting their music and gaining new fans.
Apps are created and customized by picking and choosing ‘activities’ and dropping them into the app. Andromo’s new Audio Player activity allows musicians to share sample tracks or even full albums, with eye-catching artwork integrated right into the player. With support for all major audio formats, including MP3, MP4 and AAC, music tracks can either be embedded into the app or streamed live from a web server, giving artists significant flexibility in creating their app.
Other activities like RSS/News can be used to automatically update fans on concert dates, album releases, blog posts and other band news. Bands can also include their Twitter feed and Facebook page with mobile-friendly interfaces, and share photos and videos with the Flickr photo gallery and YouTube video activities.
“Since you don’t need to write code to use Andromo, anyone can make an Android app,” says Andromo president Colin Adams. “It’s a great opportunity for musicians to promote themselves. Getting your music into the Android Market puts you in front of hundreds of millions of people instantly. Apps are a real game-changer for the music industry.”
Android apps created with Andromo can be given away as free promos to keep current fans happy and hook new listeners. Alternatively, musicians can choose to sell their app directly to fans through the Android Market. To start making an app, bands and musicians can visit Andromo and sign up for a free account.
