WiMP presents new iOS design with video, personal profile and new playlist section on iPhone and iPad

Music service WiMP introduces a redesigned iOS client for all its users with iPhone and iPad. The fresh new design makes it even easier to navigate the giant music catalog of over 25 million songs and users can also enjoy music videos, a new playlist section and their personal profile in the service.

WiMP is the only service that provides pure CD-quality sound and video in HD-quality. Video is gradually being rolled out to the different clients, already available in Android and the new web player. From today, all iPhone and iPad users can also enjoy videos on artist pages in WiMP. Video play in full screen by flipping the phone or tablet horizontally.

"With WiMP on your iPhone or iPad, you get both the best sound and best picture, with HiFi audio and HD video. We want to offer more than the sound of music. We also provide live pictures, background information and stories while you listen. With editorial tips and integrated articles from our magazine, WiMP brings more to the music experience," said CEO of WiMP Music Andy Chen.

WiMP has licensed music content from all the major record companies and many small and have available a catalog of over 75,000 music videos.

The new iOS client also includes a new playlist section, launched with the new web player. The section is divided into moods and situations where you can select music for relaxation, party, workout, romance, concentration or dinner on the first level, or dive further down and find historical lists, seasonal lists, media lists, charts, guest lists and event-based lists.

”So far we see that our new playlists focusing on Relaxation and Party prove the most popular, while the workout category is also frequently used. Especially the popularity of listening to music tailored to resting and chilling out seem to be directly related to the season and vacation mode," says Sveinung Rindal, Global Editorial Manager for WiMP Music.

The iOS client also offers the opportunity to create a personal profile, add first name, last name and picture. It is now also possible to log in with your Facebook account instead of the WiMP user. Profile pages also showcase your music collection, both music stored as favorites and playlists that you have created are now together on one page.

- Extended track information showing who composed the music, wrote the lyrics, produced and performing musicians.
- Generally easier navigation, with submenus News, Recommended, Top and Local, both albums, tracks and playlists.
