Smart Communications and MCA Music just launched a new music portal online where you can download an affordable Php 20 per track for new release music or PHp 15 per track of music in the catalog (older titles). The launch is a partnership of two companies that will bring big change to our local music scene and it will also change the way people buy their music online. Some iOS lovers do purchase their music via iTunes, others are buying music from non well known website. But with the popularity of smartphones and mobile internet, everyone now can grab a music wherever they go for just Php 20.
It’s time to say good bye to LSS, and let’s hear some real music. MCA Music just put up a large library of music and tracks licensed under their company and Smart will put this up online to Smart Music website as the publisher and for them to control the mobile commerce.
The event launch last night is jam packed with celebs and musicians from different genre.

Last night, they invited us to try the Smart Music, so I registered it using my iPhone, but I suspect that downloading Mp3 and installing it in my iPhone will not work, so we did an experiment and it didn’t work hahaha. So it means that Smart Music and Mp3 downloading will just work in Google Android devices and wap enabled phones or phones that can receive Mp3 via online. So after registering my number using my iPhone, and learned that it won’t work..I re-registered again using my Samsung S1 powered by Android.
Take note that:
this service is offered only to Smart prepaid, postpaid, broadband, Infinity and Talk n Text Subscribers only.
Registering to Smart Music is FREE
and after registering they will give you TWO free downloadable songs as freebies ( offered til August 8, 2013 only)
Visit www.smart.com.ph/music using your Android devices (tablet or smartphone)
You can browse through the online catalog and also try the preview of each songs
Go to Register and enter all details.
After registering, you will receive a SMS notification with your unique scrambled letters password
(I’m still using that password and haven’t change it yet to my own password)
Once you got your password via SMS
You can use that to Log in…and then you can now download your FREE two songs
Above: Here’s a sample page of Smart Music via touch screen and I’m viewing the page of “Better Days” music by Franco , this being sold as Php 20 per track, but I can get it for FREE since I’m a new member of Smart Music.
Click Confirm if you want to download the music.
Then press Download to get the Mp3
Downloading will start…
Users will received a SMS notification – a thank you note for purchasing the music
This is very helpful to notify the user incase of someone uses your phone and download music / or someone uses your account without your knowledge.
I’m using my mobile wifi that night and it looks like that 4MB takes longer and I waited for Greyson Chance finished his 3 song live performance last night. Maybe because that there are too many users are downloading last night during the public launch.
Music is now download complete!!!!!
Now listening to it….. wow!!
Smart Music can be also accessed via PC or Laptop, you can log in from your laptop or PC and download MP3 directly to your unit, then you can transfer it later to your mp3 player, smartphone and iPhones!
