Flipkart launched its much awaited “Online Music Store” by the name of Flyte. They are currently offering downloads in MP3 Format and DRM free music tracks starting at Rs 6. with multi device playback support in various bitrates including 64kbps, 128kbps, 320kbps.
You can re-download a purchased song 4 times, which also includes your initial download. Songs can be downloaded from 40 different languages and are divided into genres like Devotional and Spiritual, Hindustani, Carnatic, Pop, Rock and the list goes on.
Now, about the looks. Have to say, the store looks amazing. Neat and Easy to understand. It also gives you the freedom to listen to a 30 second clip of a song.
Flipkart is also offering a Download Manager, which allows customers to manage their downloads. This is what Flipkart says about The Flyte Download Manager.
“Download Manager” is a desktop application that enables faster and easier downloads. The Download Manager allows you to pause and resume file downloads later. While downloading multiple songs, especially from an Album, the download manager saves a lot of clicks.
The Flyte Download Manager is currently offered for Windows and MAC based Computers only.
Linux guys Stay Tuned.
Although, I am not sure about how many will actually buy Songs from Flipkart’s Flyte. But the Hunt for finding Album Art is surely over.
I even made a Google Chrome app for those who want to access Flyte from their browser in a Single Click.
(Simply Click the Flyte Image and your download will start (32 KB). Now, Drag and Drop that downloaded file in your Google Chrome or Chromium Bowser and you are sorted. But, make sure you keep that downloaded file saved somewhere or you’ll lose your Flyte Chrome App.)
Will update the post soon, after fully crawling the store.
