Simultaneously talking up his own service and taking a shot at Pandora, Hyman said, "When you listen to Bob Marley radio, it's not Bob Marley inspired radio. You get Bob Marley 24/7."

Your online account will sync with the mobile app, so that you'll be able to access any online playlists, friends, and other information on the go. The downloads, of course, expire if you end your subscription. Both apps are slated to arrive in the second quarter of this year. [From: VentureBeat, via: ReadWriteWeb]
