Mewbox – Android’s first music store

Mewbox, a music download service, released today for Android devices and the ARCHOS 5 tablet. It’s the first to be available in the EU, and it is DRM-free, which means there are no restrictions placed on the music you download as far as copying it to other devices.

It seems like a very straight-forward application. You can download it from their site and read the PDF which explains how to use it, how to store your music, and asks you to report any glitches, as they are still in the early stages. I tried it for myself and wasn’t able to get too far into it, but it seems like a great premise. It will be exciting to see how it evolves.

Here is what Mewbox has to say about the app:

We understand that you love music, and that you want to have access to it when you want access to it. That’s why we’re here.

Our first offering will be a way for you to buy the music you love when you want it. Register your Android device with us and you’ll be able to get what you want, when you want. Simple as that.

What we’re doing next is far more fun, stay tuned for more information.

Enjoy your music!

    Android’s first music store? What about Amazon MP3?

  • FckingAllen

    shush, Amazon MP3 dosnt count lol no one likes it. just be glad some really cool things are coming our way.

      I think the amazon mp3 store is quite alright, actually. Mostly use it through Pandora, when a cool song comes up that I want to buy.
      Gonna give this a try though.

  • Isaac Waller

    So does it work outside the UK (say, in Canada?) Here in Canada we’re always left out – no Hulu, no Amazon MP3.

    • Angie Strickland

      The app I downloaded from the website showed the prices in pounds sterling, which seems as though they have internationalization figured out, but I don’t know for sure.

  • Ayman

    ok so im guessing a song is like .99cents?

  • Mark

    I guess they mean this is the first Android specific music store?

    Not too impressive – at least so far. It seems laggy, and forceclosed.

    Will give it a chance to mature, but if this is a UK/EU only affair they need to spell that out.

    No one likes Amazon MP3? What’s the basis? I buy virtually all my music there, in non-DRM MP3 format. It’s got the fewest restrictions of any music store and it’s got an Android client that’s built into every device. It’s not perfect but it’s miles ahead of anything else.

  • Max Fadia

    this seams like a got idea in the future but i think they should bring la la or rhapsody or some subscription music company built into the phone.

    Nice, but why? I’ve been an Amazon customer since they opened their virtual doors. When I got my first iPod, I made the mistake buying my MP3s from iTunes. Now I have a bunch of 128-bit protected AAC files that I need to “upgrade” Plus Apple has the balls to charge me an extra $.30 to upgrade each track.

    I only buy my MP3s from Amazon. In fact I buy almost everything from Amazon. I’ve already purchased a few new tunes using the Amazon MP3 app on my Droid and it works flawlessly. Why should I submit my personal and financial info to yet another website? Somone please convince me.

    Regardless of how you feel about AmazonMP3, you have to admit this headline is just wrong. It’s not the first music store. That being said, I’m still going to check it out.
