Jamcast Player from Software Development Solutions, Inc. is a streaming client app exclusively for Android devices. Using Jamcast Server and an existing home internet connection, consumers can establish a secure private cloud from which all of their digital music is shared. Jamcast Player then connects their Android device to the private cloud over a 3G/4G or Wi-Fi data connection, allowing users to browse, search, and stream their entire music catalog from anywhere.
Jamcast Player provides total control over audio quality and network data usage with adjustable performance configurations by network connection type. Jamcast Player supports native playback of a wide variety of audio formats, including FLAC/FLAC-HD, OGG, MP3, WMA, ALAC, and AAC/AAC+.
While still in beta, Jamcast Player features include gapless playback, automatic internet server discovery, integrated security, voice search, SD card installation, car dock support, and more. The user interface displays high resolution album art and is optimized for car usage.
Jamcast Player is a free download from the Android Market for devices running Android 2.1 and higher. Optimized display support for tablet devices and Google TV is forthcoming.
Jamcast Server is simple to install and runs on Microsoft Windows XP or higher. A fully-functional 14-day trial of the software is available for download at http://getjamcast.com, and a license can be purchased for $29.99.
