Today you're seeing a completely rewritten-from-scratch new Magnatune.com web site. About a year of effort went into this, so I hope you'll find some things to like about it.
A few key new features are:
1) you can play albums directly from the home page, making it much faster to try music out
2) tabs on the home page let you quickly navigate between large numbers of new and popular albums in all our genres
4) the entire web site is fully iPhone/iPad/Android compatible, with no features lost when you use one of those devices. With hopefully only a few exceptions, the things you need to "touch" are big and fat and so easy on the fingers.
5) you can click "hide this propaganda" on the home page, and all the annoying sales-text is removed, so you can focus on listening to music. Plus, "no propaganda" setting is remembered in a cookie, so you won't see any the next time you visit either.
Please send me an email or post a blog comment if you have any problems. There is a lot of new technology behind this, so I wouldn't be surprised if there are still some problems, despite our testing.
What's next? We have more features coming, but which will require yet more technology changes on our end, so we wanted to put this out first, with fewer major changes, and iron out the problems before causing yet more chaos.
Let me know what you think!
