Evolver Review

Groovy, the new social listening app and streaming service from Japanese company DeNA, connects users with similar taste to build a social network centered on music preference. The hybrid social networking and music streaming service has adopted a jukebox-style system of payment: users buy e-tickets loaded with credit (1 credit=3 plays in a month, 17 credits=1USD). A free version of the service exists alongside the paid service, though users listening for free are restricted to only 45 seconds of a song. The app's song catalog is expansive, a feat considering, as one Japanese blogger puts it, 'Japanese record labels do not like internet!" Another cool feature: lyrics are available on-screen for about 90% of the music available on the app.

Groovy is only available in Japan. DeNA owns Mobage, one of Japan's most popular mobile gaming platforms.
