Unloader is a file swap app that promotes low-cost music downloads and new revenue generating system
Lexink, a company that provides innovation and expertise in information technology, advertising, and film production, has announced the launching of its new file sharing application which, it claims, can help music industry cut back from the losses due to piracy and also offer consumers a safe, low-cost means to legally download music.
Through this application, called UNLOADER the company aims at creating a new revenue stream for the download store, record labels, studios and artists. Unloader is intended as a app with a touch for business. Instead of just buying MP3s for your own pleasure and use why not further resell them and make profit? After purchasing a title at its full price sale you can use it to further generate income as it is unloaded. Makes you go..hmmm, doesn’t it?
What exactly does UNLODER do?
In the developer’s own words, it: “lets you trade in your unwanted multimedia titles for new content. You simply post the music, TV shows or movies that you would like to unload from your digital library. UNLODER™ is integrated into the Media Player digital download store so once you unload a title and someone purchases it, the media vanishes from your library and you can no longer play it. You get store credit that you can redeem for other unloaded content on the resale store or brand new titles from the online store. UNLODER™ allows you to list which titles you are interested in buying and lets you know when they are available.”
The company warns about the dangers when using ‘free downloads’ sites which can hide viruses and various types of malware and promotes its product as a solution to the illegal file sharing. It remains to be seen how attractive it will prove to both record companies and music fans that are used to getting what they want fast and easy.
