A new music downloading service has popped up seemingly from the Fairyland to deliver the simplest and fastest downloading experience you have witnessed so far. All the hopes of those trying out this app go for its life span as we expect such a service to be targeted pretty soon.
So, what is this app? It’s called Mulve and is simply a single 2MB, portable EXE that allows you to download mp3s. Without any installation, UI or configurable settings, the only thing that Mulve requires from you is to type in a song title or an artist and download. The download itself (for a track) only takes a few seconds. Yeah, the app might not be all that gorgeous looking but it sure is damn fast!
And it gets even better – Mulve can prompt results even when you’re searching for rare tracks or more obscure bands which makes it the ideal tool for a genuine music lover – and better – the service comes with an impressive data base making an easy job to find what you’re looking for – “we search through over 10,000,000 released and unreleased songs when bringing you your results. With the largest choice of artists, songs, remixes, and edits there won’t be a track you can’t find,” says the site.
However, Mulve has nothing to do with p2p (peer-to-peer) file-sharing so don’t take it for another BitTorrent client or file sharing service because that’s not what it is. Among other things this means you don’t need to worry about uploading, being monitored for illegal downloading, ratios, etc. Actually there’s no sharing at all, you just take what you need.
The app doesn’t let you play, preview, or handle other tasks besides searching and downloading but that is …perfectly OK with me ‘cause it definitely takes care of this with remarkable speed and accuracy.
According to TorrentFreak the servers might be located in Russia and connected to Vkontakte, a huge social networking site.
Mulve – In their own words:
“A program that requires no installation, registration and can sit neatly on your desktop with a maximum file size of just 1.8mb, runs flawlessly and causes absolutely no computer lag.”
