Pony.fm BETA 2 Launches!



Hey everyone!


As most of you guys know, I've been working on a new version of Pony.fm. This new version is the launching point for the next era of features that will be implemented.


This project is a rewrite of the existing platform. The main reason this had to be done was to support the most asked for feature - the ability to play music while browsing the website. I'm happy to say that Pony.fm now behaves more like an application rather than just a website; and this embodies the direction that I wanted to take this project after coming on board in addition to the existing vision that Feld had. We now have the best of both worlds, and are getting very close to competing directly with the likes of Bandcamp, Google Music and Soundcloud as the premier brony music repository.


Of course the features that were available on the last BETA of PFM are still present - with the exception of notifications. We understand how important this feature is; but we would like to integrate it into Poniverse itself instead of having notifications be isolated to just Pony.fm. As a result, this feature is on temporary hold.


In addition; there will be bugs. Since we lack the QA resources that larger shops have access to - and this codebase is less tested than the previous one - we expect some bumps along the way. We understand this, and will do our best to address issues as quickly as possible. If you run into something, please-please-please post in the appropriate forum located here: http://mlpforums.com/forum/62-ponyfm/


Anyway, there isn't much more to say here. At this point I'd again like to thank Feld for bringing me on the project, and the wonderful support we have from the community. We're building this for you guys - and we sincerely hope you enjoy it!
