Pure Launches Second Generation 'Pure Connect' Apps for iPad, iPhone and Android Devices in North America at CES 2013

Free New App Makes Music Discovery Easy

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- (International CES South Hall #36254) Today at CES 2013, Pure announces second generation 'Pure Connect' apps for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, which have been designed with content and music discovery at their heart to deliver a truly immersive and engaging user-experience.

The new Pure Connect app gives users access to local music on their smartphone or tablet, thousands of radio stations, on-demand programmes and podcasts, as well as millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service(1). The free apps and new and improved Pure Connect website (www.pureconnect.com) have been designed with content at their heart and very simple, easy to use navigation. Music discovery is made easy with a seamless journey from the moment the user logs in thanks to the new 'discovery' section, which includes smart recommendations based on the user's history.

Control for Pure's new Jongo multiroom music system (announced today at CES) is built into the DNA of the free Pure Connect apps. The Pure Jongo system is the world's first family of affordable multiroom audio products and allows the user to start with a single speaker and add more Jongo products for perfectly synchronized audio all around their home.

All content is kept synced in the cloud and users can access their content intuitively from all devices wherever and whenever they want including PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, or any Pure Music streaming product that is linked to Pure Connect.

Pure Connect features content from Audioboo's(2) new initiative, In Their Own Words, which allows content creators such as musicians, authors, comedians and more to connect more closely with their fans by sharing all aspects of their creative process through the social spoken word.

"The design and user-experience that the new Pure Connect app delivers elevates it to be a best-in-class audio service," said Noam Meppen, Pure's director of sales, US. "Pure Connect offers a wealth of great content, while allowing users to explore related content and enjoy tailored recommendations. All this coupled with the customization controls users are accustomed to delivers a compelling new service for music lovers."

Coming soon: The Pure Connect website and apps include a full music store and Pure Music. A new 'friends' section will be added so that users can see what their friends are listening to and share playlists socially.

The new, second generation Pure Connect apps will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2013.
