Songza Application Now Available For boxee

In a post on his company's blog, Tuesday, Avner Ronen, CEO of over-the-top-TV specialist, boxee, announced the availability of a Songza application for the boxee platform, that has been built using boxee's recently launched API (note: for more on the boxee API, see [itvt]'s interview with Ronen in Issue 8.38). Songza is an application that finds and plays free, legally distributed music files on the Internet. boxee users can install the Songza app on boxee by going to App Box>New Applications and selecting "Songza." The app will then appear under Music>Internet (note: Ronen promises that boxee will "make it easier to add apps in the future").

[itvt] readers with software-development expertise can read a detailed account by boxee developer, Idan Cohen, of the development process behind the app (Cohen says he was able to develop it in less than a day) at: http://developer.boxee.tv/2009/05/19/songza-application/
