This is an unofficial emusic app. The developer is NOT officially associated with eMusic in any way.
The official eMusic app was recently released. You should check that out first. This app is still available for previous purchasers and because it provides audiobook support which is missing in the official version.
This app lets you browse, search & purchase music/audiobooks from eMusic.com to your Android device. Both complete albums and single tracks can be downloaded. Listen to audio samples when available. All albums and audiobooks are available DRM free as ordinary mp3 files from the eMusic.com store. eMusic is known for great indie music selection and knowledgeable subscribers and has the largest unencrypted audiobook store on the web. This currently works best in the USA - please read below and download the free version of the app first, to evaluate the support in region, before purchasing.
Please read the instructions in app (make sure to have the download manager enabled in your emusic.com account settings and to sync the download manager when prompted on your first download).
Downloaded music and audiobooks are automatically added to the Android music player library.
PLEASE email me if anything is not working or if you have suggestions. I try to respond quickly to any queries. However, please note that because the developer is not officially associated with eMusic, the continued usability of this app is subject to factors outside the developer's control.
There is currently a problem that users outside the USA are taken to the USA only webpage at eMusic. This appears to be outside of my control to fix, but I am continuing to investigate it. If you are outside the USA, please download and try the free version of the app before purchasing. You can attempt to set your region in the app settings.
What to do if your download fails? Long press on the track in the download manager list that has failed and select "retry" then press the download button at the top to restart the downloads. If you accidentally cleared the downloads, press the Menu button in the download manager and then press "emx files" to reload your purchased album. If we cannot resolve your issue, you must contact eMusic customer service at http://www.emusic.com/contact/index.html to ask for your credits to be restored.
Please remember that if you simply leave a bad review without emailing me, I cannot follow up with you to fix your problem.
Explanation of Permissions Required:
FULL INTERNET ACCESS
This one is pretty obvious - We need internet access to browse the eMusic catalog and to download tracks.
MODIFY/DELETE USB STORAGE CONTENTS MODIFY/DELETE SD CARD CONTENTS
We need access to the USB (SD-card) storage in order to store downloaded tracks, to buffer samples during playback and to cache album art.
PREVENT DEVICE FROM SLEEPING
We need this permission to prevent the device from sleeping during the middle of an album download (users expect the download to continue in the background). We immediately remove this restriction on the device as soon as a download is finished. Please let me know if you have evidence the app is using too much battery.
