Introducing the Beats Music iPad App

The majority of our listeners are using Beats Music on their iOS device, iPhone or iPad. Until today, to find and use Beats Music on an iPad, they had to download the iPhone app to their iPad and use the small-screen version on the bigger screen.  We’re proud today to announce the arrival of Beats Music for iPad, the first version of Beats Music optimized for the larger tablet screen.

To celebrate, we’re giving away a year-long subscription to Beats Music and an iPad to one lucky fan on Twitter. To enter for your chance to win, follow @BeatsMusic and retweet this promotional message. For more details, see the official rules.

All the features from the iPhone app — Just For You, The Sentence, Highlights, Playlists by Genre, Activity, and Curators — plus the ability to find artists, albums tracks, and playlists bookmarked for later are included in the iPad app. Listeners can change their profile, make a playlist and share it with the world, as well as download music to the iPad to listen on the plane or anywhere, even if there’s no Internet connection. And it’s all available now on a larger screen, both in portrait or landscape.

But this is more than just about a bigger screen. The iPad is the gateway to streaming music inside the home. According to recent research, 80% of all tablet use takes place in the home, with most of that taking place in the living room. What’s more, entertainment apps (like music) account for more than half of tablet usage, more than any other category combined. Beats Music was designed as a mobile-first app, as most music listening takes place on mobile phones today. But it’s not a mobile-only app, as our integration with Sonos, and now the iPad app, shows. We believe music should be part of every aspect of life, and that means making music available in all places and in all forms fans desire.

Download Beats Music for iPad, fire up your Beats Pill, and let the music play.
