TERRE HAUTE —
Caktus Music Inc. has announced the release of Caktus, the first true social music player, for iPhone.
Using a fully integrated music player, Caktus allows users to share exactly what they are listening to and where in real time.
Users can then look on a simple, map-based interface to see what their Facebook and Twitter friends are listening to and where.
A pin is dropped on the map every time a song is played.
Caktus can also be used by artists to connect with fans, offering musicians the chance to share what music inspires them.
Co-founder Keith Williams grew up in Rosedale.
The company is taking the opportunity to officially launch during South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, this weekend. For more information, visit www.caktusmusic.com.
