Pro Tip: Access Your Murfie Player on Your iPad

Our Developer team has just rolled out a neat upgrade to our “mini player” for Murfie Gold subscribers. The player is now officially a pop-out player, which gives you the option to continue listening to your music while browsing other web pages. Say it with me: three cheers for multitasking!

Own an iPad? Keep listening. We’ve got a pro tip for you… There exists a clever little trick that’ll make accessing your Murfie player on your iPad a breeze. So if you’ve got an iPad on hand, whip it out and follow along:

  1. Open Safari and go to Murfie.com.
  2. Log into your Murfie account and tap the player’s “pop out” button –> this loads your player in a new tab.
  3. On the left side of the address bar, tap the “curved arrow” send-to button.
  4. Select “Add to home screen.”

There, now you have an icon on your tablet’s home screen. Tapping that will launch you straight into a full-screen version of your mini player. Done and done! Let the good times roll.

Music Now Playing: What’s on Your Mini Player?

Now, here’s a loaded question. What are you listening to at this very moment? Obvi, what’s on your playlist can totes tell us a lot about your mood and overall music tastes. For example, this very morning I was streaming, no lies, Ricky Martin’s “La Copa de la Vida” on my Murfie mini player. (See the featured image for proof.)

So why the heck was I listening to an artist best known for songs like “Livin’ la Vida Loca”, “Shake Your Bon-Bon” and “She Bangs”? It’s hardly rocket science—I was feeling pretty darn up-tempo in the a.m., following a hearty breakfast of black coffee and sugar packets.

Once the jitters die down, who knows, I might switch over my playlist to something a bit more somber. Enough about my listening habits, though—what about you? Hit us up on twitter and tell us what song is playing on your mini player at this very moment. Then hashtag it with #mymusicbe_____, inserting whatever adjective describes your current mood. This could be fun, dot dot dot.
