Royalty-free music service PremiumBeat has announced a new mobile application for filmmakers to browse and listen to songs.

The app is designed to allow users to listen to the company’s royalty-free music library when out on location or away from their desktop.

The PremiumBeat service currently offers various soundtracks for a generic fee depending on what kind of project the track will be used in.

Features of the new app include the ability to like and save songs to playlists so they can be accessed later on users’ desktops. Credit: PremiumBeat

GM Motion at Shutterstock, Sylvain Grande, said: “For a film editor, searching through music tracks has traditionally been a laborious task, requiring the editor to work solely from any desktop or laptop. Having this capability at their fingertips will expand listening and curating opportunities immensely.

“We’re proud to provide a full-fledged tool that is integrated in users’ daily workflow, making it easier and quicker to find new tracks and provide new discovery tools.”

The company hopes that the new mobile app will aid the changing way that video editors search and browse music for film, video and media projects.

It’s worth noting that the music itself cannot be downloaded on the app so users must save their chosen songs to a playlist for access on a desktop.

The PremiumBeat app is free to download from iOS in the app store here and for Android in the Google Play store here.

The app also has a feature which recommends other music for your project. Credit: PremiumBeat
