Dear Kickstarter backers,
it’s been a little over one year since 4,883 backers helped to bring the Gramofon to life. Once again, thanks to all of you for your support.
In August 2014 we began shipping the original Gramofon to the Kickstarter community who backed us. The original Gramofon supported Spotify and WahWah and we promised our users that we would continue to innovate and add great features and functionality to Gramofon by way of ongoing software updates. We told you of our plan to integrate Qualcomm® AllPlay™ technology to Gramofon and that AllPlay™ would open up a new world of possibilities for Gramofon users.
As many of you already know on May 1st 2015 we officially launched the AllPlay™ Gramofon.
In addition to Spotify Premium, Gramofon now supports all the other music-streaming services on the AllPlay™ platform, including Napster, Rhapsody, TuneIn, Aupeo, Wahwah, doubleTwist and Soma FM. More services will be added to AllPlay™ over time, and each will be compatible with the Gramofon – the likes of Jay Z’s TIDAL, SoundCloud and iHeart Radio are all coming soon. Simply open your favourite music streaming service app and hit play.
LOCALLY STORED MUSIC
AllPlay isn’t just about streaming music via internet-based services; it enables you to play music stored locally on your smartphone, tablet or computer, too. With AllPlay you are now able to send music from your handset or tablet (Android or iOS) directly to your speakers. But not only that; you can also discover the music on your computer using your handset and send it to the Gramofon too, no matter if you use a MAC or a PC; all you need is a DLNA server and the AllPlay™ Jukebox or doubleTwist apps.
Gramofon with AllPlay™ also adds nifty multi-room functionality – if you have several audio systems around your home, simply connect a Gramofon to each one, and add them to your WiFi network. Via the AllPlay app, you can choose to play music in just one room, or different music in several rooms, or synchronise your Gramofons so they all play the same music – perfect for house parties!
