MySpace Debuts Mobile App For Android

MySpace debuted its mobile application for Android on Monday. The app is now live for those who already have an Android phone, but it won't be "officially" available until Wednesday, when the device is available to the public.

The app includes features like instant photo upload from Android to a MySpace profile and the ability to check out tour schedules on band profiles. The app is integrated exclusively with Shazam, allowing users to identify music and connect to the artist's MySpace page.

MySpace has developed applications for Android, Sidekick, iPhone, is currently developing an application for BlackBerry, and has more to come, according to a spokesperson.

"MySpace users will love the new Android integration with cool features like instant photo uploading and access to the latest shows from their favorite bands," said John Faith, vice president and general manager of Mobile for MySpace, in a statement. "We want to ensure that all users have access to their global MySpace network while they're on the go."--Tanya Irwin
