eMusic helper app is small step forward

Donald Bell weighs his opinion on eMusic online music retailer's new download application.

eMusic's Remote application is basically a Web browser with a download manager stuck on the side.

Online music retailer eMusic launched their 'eMusic Remote' application today, which is currently downloadable for PC, Mac, and Linux. While Remote doesn't exactly revolutionize the eMusic customer experience, it does consolidate the eMusic online store and and eMusic download manager application into one space and increases support for syncing eMusic content to jukebox applications like iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Winamp.

We still wish there was a way to preview tracks without getting kicked over to another application, but this is definitely a step in the right direction for eMusic. It's a much better strategy than trying to offer up a competing jukebox app like Rhapsody, Urge (RIP), or Winamp.
