What's New in Version 2.0.1
This updates delivers Freegal Music v. 4.0 to the mobile experience. Now Freegal has 7 million songs worldwide, from over 28,000 music labels that originate in over 80 countries. Also available are over 15,000 DRM-free music videos, which can be stored in the app, and backed up to your computer. This updated Freegal mobile app ties into a new and improved search engine. The following functionality improvements exist: iTunes and computer backup, “push” notification ability, improved search and browse, ability to create playlists, ability to delete songs, ability to download videos (which cost 2 downloads instead of 1).
In addition, some libraries will display a streaming option. Streaming will only display if your library has specifically bought the streaming service. If your library has bought the streaming service, you will be able to stream hours of content per day, in addition to your weekly download allotment. The sample button no longer exists, and is replaced by a streaming button. In addition to the 4.0 functionality described above, end users will be able to create streaming playlists, or access pre-selected Freegal playlists. Users will be able to select and play entire albums, either through the app or via the web.
See the FAQs on your participating local library’s Freegal website for more details.
