MEar, shorthand for “Music plus Ear,” enables users to enjoy music whenever, wherever they want. The service dismantles traditional boundaries that limit music access to consumers (MEar service is designed with the mindset that consumers should not be limited to computer as the only source of their musical access). With MEar, people can play personalized music collections across multiple devices like desktops, laptops or Android phones, saving the troubles of repeatedly creating playlists on different platforms; therefore, allowing for an easier management of their music collections and time saved. In addition, its built-in push app to Facebook allows users to post their thoughts on the music they are listening and share them with friends. Moreover, the unlimited storage space and remote access provided by ASUS WebStorage enables an instant lookup from MEar’s comprehensive music library.
To allow as many consumers as possible to experience the entire MEar firsthand, eCareme has rolled out a free trial program worldwide beginning Dec. 15, 2010 to Jan. 15, 2011. Register and download MEar to get free 5G storage for one year (store up to 1,000 MP3 files).
