TuneWiki is a music-centered startup that provides scrolling lyrics through its social music players for cellphones and handheld devices. With over 6 million lyrics and the world's largest scrolling lyrics library, TuneWiki currently has agreements with the major music publishers including Sony, Universal, and EMI to legally use synchronized lyrics in TuneWiki's music applications. Furthermore, the mobile TuneWiki applications also provide lyrics for streaming radio on mobile phones, and TuneWiki has location-based technology to let users see where their favorite music is being played around the world. Users follow other users to discover music and have conversations around the music they listen to. [via Wikipedia.com]

Shutdown announcement

On the 20th of June, Tunewiki announced that they'll be closing down the site on the 28th of June.

After five incredible years of growth and innovation, we regret to inform you that TuneWiki will no longer be available after June 28th, 2013

"TuneWiki has come a long way from its early days, when we pioneered the inclusion of scrolling lyrics with music playback. Over time we blossomed into a vibrant social music service that has been enjoyed by millions of music lovers. We saw countless examples of passionate and inspiring personal expression using lyrics and music as the foundation. We are excited by the many friendships built within our community that I believe will last for years, if not a lifetime. This is what we set out to build and we are very proud of what we created. Unfortunately, everything comes to an end sooner or later and now is the time for those of us who have worked so hard for so long to move on to other journeys."

@LarryG, CEO

To all of our loyal TuneWiki fans, we owe you tremendous thanks for all of your feedback and involvement in our community over the past five years. We couldn't have done it without you.
