Unique Interactive is teaming up with American company Jump2Go to offer iTunes Tagging service to broadcasters outside the US.
Jump2Go, based in Seattle, is the developer behind the technology which has just launched on the new iPod nano in the United States. It allows iPod nano users listening to the FM tuner to use the Click Wheel to tag the song they’re listening to. iTunes then creates a list of all tagged songs that can be easily previewed or purchased when a user syncs their iPod nano to iTunes.
“Having worked with Allen for around 15 years now, we are really pleased to be able to work with Jump2Go and their iTunes Tagging solution. Our relationship and experience with broadcasters worldwide means we understand a station’s need to offer the latest functionality and we look forward to the further rollout of iTunes Tagging both inside and outside the US.” said Simon Blackmore, Group Operations Director, UBC Media Group.
“We’re really pleased Apple have now launched iPod nano with the FM tuner. Having iTunes Tagging in the US along with Live Pause offers a very attractive proposition to the millions of people who still like to listen to radio on FM. UBC are the perfect partner for us to work with on growing this initiative outside of the US.” said Allen Hartle, Founder, Jump2Go, Inc.
