HMV today announced the launch of a new digital music store and smartphone app in Ireland.
It said that this marks the first phase of the retailer's entry into digital entertainment since the company was acquired by Hilco Capital in April.
The innovative HMV app, available from today free of charge from Google Play stores in Ireland, allows users to shop, look and listen by combining image search and sound search technology with high quality MP3 downloads for the first time.
The iOS version of app, which was released last week in the UK, has been temporarily removed from the iOS App Store by Apple in spite of the Cupertino, California-based tech company previously giving HMV's app its approval. An update is due next week on the status of the Irish iOS App,as the HMV Digital Team work around the clock on an updated version.
