iCoreTech Inc. unveils the new AudioBox iPhone App

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) February 04, 2013 iCoreTech, Inc. has announced the release of its AudioBox™ iPhone® application – a sleek, Retina®-ready counterpart to the AudioBox.fm cloud-based media platform. The AudioBox iPhone app, available now on the iTunes Store worldwide, lets users stream their media collections from anywhere, with no gaps between files and no limits on data.

AudioBox is one of the first cloud applications to allow users to store and manage an unlimited capacity of media files from multiple cloud storage providers and gaplessly stream them through a single web-based interface. With the new iPhone app, Audiobox’s highly user-friendly interface and flexible functionality translate flawlessly to iOS 6 as a native iPhone app.

The app allows the users to securely access media files in the cloud, so their entire media collection goes with them anywhere, not matter how extensive it is or where it’s stored. This includes any compatible media stored on your home computer (PC, Mac or Linux) or connected external hard drive, using free AudioBox Desktop software, as well as files that have been uploaded to the AudioBox Cloud.

Access to files on third-party cloud storage services is just as easy. To date, a growing list of compatible cloud services includes DropBox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and Box.com. Users can also stream from a SoundCloud account or YouTube channel, bringing all of their functionality to a single mobile platform.

The AudioBox iPhone app also offers full support for smart playlists, letting users manage smart playlists using files that are stored with different cloud services, as well as files from their local computer or external hard drive. The playlists can be set as “Offline,” so users can stream when they’re not connected – on a plane, for example, or during an outage.

Features include:    •      Retina®- and HD-ready, with pixel-perfect design    •     AirPlay™-ready    •     Background streaming with automatic pause/restart during calls    •     Album cover art and track info display when device is locked    •     Native now playing info center enabled    •     iOS controls work locally and remotely, e.g. on a car stereo    •     Pre-buffering and pre-caching for gapless streaming    •     Off-line playlist support    •     Lyrics integration    •     Artwork support    •     Playlists grouped by album    •     Shareable track information    •     Ability to mix audio channels with other applications In addition to the enhanced accessibility of iCoreTech’s Unified Library™ technology, which enables access to unlimited files regardless of where they’re stored, the AudioBox iPhone app includes other key features from the AudioBox desktop version. Display options include a robust social sharing functionality that creates detailed “Now Playing” notifications shareable on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Twitch.tv, that includes artists information from Last.fm, videos from YouTube, concert listings from SongKick, lyrics from musiXmatch and a real time Twitter feed.

About iCoreTech, Inc.

iCoreTech was born in Italy in 2009 when visionary developer Claudio Poli partnered with Fabio Tunno and Valerio Chiodino, two colleagues who shared his passion for turning smart ideas into technical realities. As the creativity started flowing, they found that they needed a secure way to store all of their files without choking their operating systems. So they developed a solution: a simple cloud-based locker. It worked so well, they shared it with their friends. These friends shared it with their friends until it grew organically into AudioBox, an application enjoyed by 15,000 users. The team decided to share it with the world. Joined by New York-based management expert Simone Tarantino, they proceeded to gather user feedback, enhance and fine-tune AudioBox until it was ready for its public debut in 2012.

iCoreTech is now also licensing the platform to major players including ISPs, online music retailers, telecom companies and manufacturers, in USA, Europe and Japan.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
