There are so many different branches of the tech scene it’s sometimes hard to keep track on growth. Music based apps are pretty hot at the moment. Exfm are no exception. The startup’s product is hitched on the success of Google Chrome. What it doe is alert users of embedded mp3 files on a webpage and catalogue these on a playlist for listening.
In their own words, exfm‘s purpose is:
“Exfm is a browser extension for Chrome that turns the entire web into your personal music library. As you browse, exfm runs in the background indexing every MP3 file you come across, building a music library for you. Exfm will continue to check the sites you’ve visited, adding new music for you to listen to every day. Exfm was founded in March, 2010 in New York City.”
Investors include Betaworks, Spark Capital, Founders Collective, and Dave Morgan. The money has already been earmarked for a much needed growth spurt via additional hires and fine tuning. Word’s out that exfm want to re-tool their product for use on Android devices and iOS. That’s pretty ambitious.
