Ejdera was created by Punto New Media as a way to expand advertising potential for music. Punto New Media has put together a number of website projects to present new social media resources. Ejdera in particular is focused around modern music. Today, the application offers a number of features to help users find their favorite artists and learn about newly discovered performers. The site has also expanded to provide connectivity through Facebook, Twitter and FriendFeed.
Ejdera stands out because it integrates many different types of media for users to create a real portfolio of their favorite musical acts. Other applications present only one or two resources, while Ejdera offers more than twice that. Users can not only listen to music, but watch videos, create and maintain playlists, listen to online radio stations, and find song lyrics.
The look of Ejdera is nothing short of cutting edge. The style is complimentary to many of the artists featured on the site. New users can easily find their way around the site. Right on the homepage, the search bar is bold and prominently featured above a scrolling banner showcasing musicians. The player is also found on the homepage and can be used to access the radio feature. User feedback is also encouraged to help develop the Ejdera beta through a Feedback tab along the left hand side of the homepage. The site currently includes a small number of advertisements however this is kept to a minimum.
The registration process is very simple. New users can click the small “register” link near the login on the homepage and enter a username, email address, and password. No further action is required. As soon as the register button is clicked, the account is created and the user can begin exploring Ejdera.
Ejdera is currently offered as a free online application to all users. No account creation restrictions are currently in place. However, this may change as the site comes out of beta and officially releases. For now, users can browse the long list of Ejdera music features without a monthly or yearly account fee.
Music lovers can really appreciate the features Ejdera has to offer. Both fanatical enthusiasts of various musical genres as well as casual listeners just looking for a new way to expand their listening preferences can utilize the features found here and learn about new and well known artists. Although the homepage seems to focus on modern artists, there are also many older bands and musicians, such as Led Zeppelin, the Doors and the Rolling Stones. The selection is rather limited, but this may change in coming months as Ejdera continues to expand.
