7digital Music for Android allows users to access 7digital’s 14 million strong catalogue of high quality MP3 tracks and browse, preview, purchase and download music to their device, anytime, anywhere.

New features include:
- An integrated store allows users to easily purchase and download music to their Android device.

- Playlists can be created and managed within the application.
- 30 second previews of all tracks are available before purchase
