MySpace, the fast-fledgling social media service has finally listened to their critics and updated their terribly-designed site. Unfortunately for them, it’s about 3 years after their market share gave up and made the move to Facebook.
But, to their credit, or folly, they have not given up. And MySpace has actually just launched a really cool new product.
MySpace Music Romeo is a free music video app that can be accessed via iPad or its Website. Users can select from 15 different music genres, and stream popular music videos served at random.
Users will be subject to one 15 second ad every 14 minutes. Users can also “love” their favorites and MySpace Romeo will recommend new videos based on the user’s selections, similar to Pandora and other Internet radio stations. Integration with the iTunes store will allow MySpace Romeo users to instantly purchase the songs or videos as well.
