Splyce celebrates version 2.0 being named App Store Best of 2013

Barcelona, Spain – After a thrilling first release on the App Store with over 700K downloads, InQBarna launches Splyce version 2.0, a major update adding complex features to this “fancy music player with magical DJ powers.” After being for 4 months in the market, Splyce has become one of the greatest music apps on the App Store and Apple has just named it “Best of App Store 2013.” Now, the developers want to improve the tool for both beginners and pro users with new sound effects, ability to save playlists, advanced lighting effects and smart seek and song transitions.

“We are delivering what users have been asking for during the last 3 months” says Nacho Sánchez, Inqbarna’s CEO, app development company behind Splyce. “After collecting all that feedback we decided to put our efforts on developing the best app our users could dream of. We have implemented the most requested features, so we are proud to say that our users are leading Splyce to become the best music player out on the App Store.” adds Nacho.

Splyce is a well designed music player for iPhone that can make you shine as a party host as it synchronizes music & lighting and mixes the songs on your playlist like a real DJ. But you can also use Splyce for your daily commute and it is also a great tool for workouts as you can set the rhythm and make your music follow the rhythm you want. Ideal for runners, spinning sessions and all kind of fitness activities, it will help you train your body&soul in a whole new music experience.

Splyce 2.0 is a major update for the app and the new features it includes will bring thousands of hours of joy to its users. The most requested feature until the moment was the ability to save different playlists, so developers came up with Splycelists. Now users can set a new playlist every time they want and they can save, load and edit those Splycelists that include not only the songs, but its settings too: mix mode, song length, mixing time, etc. With the Splycelists anyone can have several playlists for partying, working out, commute, working… and start acting like a real DJ with Splyce.

Users will also have the ability to use the brand new smart length & duration engine. “We have received a lot of feedback from users asking for some extra magic within the app to skip directly the boring parts of the songs and listen only to the hot parts of each track. And that’s why we have developed this feature that anyone can enjoy”. You just select the songs and Splyce will do the magic for you. There is also a smart seek feature that will allow you to seek through the app in a smart way, that means that you choose the point of the song where you want to seek and Splyce will automatically identify the beat that best suits the transition. “People will start going back and forward on the same song because it’s magical. You can really feel the power of a DJ with just one finger. Easy, powerful and cool, that’s the app we want to offer to our users” Nacho claims.

But Splyce 2.0 has a lot more to offer: users can now get new Philips hue effects when synchronising the app with their Philips’ Hue led bulbs, and that is an amazing work. Feeling how the music and light effects work at the exact same beat is a real revolution for simplifying things when it comes to organising parties.

In order to make life easier to their users, developers have grouped all features in 3 categories: Fancier, Pro and Premium. “We believe that the Freemium model is the one that best suits Splyce, but we will continue adding new features and we want to keep it simple for our users, so we have grouped all features in 3 upgrades, you buy it once and you get all new features for free” says Inqbarna CEO. At this point, you can find:

But Splyce’s roadmap does not end here, for 2014 Inqbarna wants to focus on the social skills of the app, empowering Splyce as a music discovery platform.
