AOL Releases Four New Mobile Websites for Car Lovers

AOL has launched four mobile websites in the automotive space. If you're a car lover and you own a cell phone then these are your new bookmarks – handy for when you have a little alone time in line at the grocery store, or, you know, whenever.

The new sites are:

AOL Autos offers tools for making smart car decisions, and will include tools for researching, buying, repairing, or selling cars. The site also includes car news, articles, and stories. While the initial launch includes primarily car content (articles and videos) the other tools will follow shortly later this year.

Who Ever Told You Not to PLAY with Fire?

We recently launched our AOL music app, PLAY, for iPhone and Android with one goal in mind: give people a simple, but killer, music listening experience that lets them discover and share constantly updated new music with friends in fun ways. Since that launch, nearly 1,000,000 rockers, rappers, hippies, hipsters, metal-heads, and jazz-heads (that's a thing, right?) have downloaded PLAY across Android and iOS and we're proud to say that we're now bringing PLAY to the Kindle Fire.

This isn't a repeat of some app built for your Droid. This is 100% designed and built for Kindle Fire. Why? Because our Mobile Ninjas here at AOL love the heck out of the Fire and we love the way PLAY looks and feels on that glorious 7-inch screen.

PLAY has been referred to as the "Swiss Army Knife of music apps." While it doesn't come with a toothpick and scissors, it is a beautiful custom music player that lets you listen to your own MP3 collection via our elegant interface; but it's so much more than that. You want to discover new music? We've got you covered with our CD Listening Party that lets you stream free tracks and albums from our huge and constantly updated AOL Music database. PLAY also gives you access to 55,000+ SHOUTcast radio stations.

And, since many of us learn what to listen to by hearing it from a friend, PLAY shows you a constant feed of what your friends are listening to. Share your favorites to PLAY, Twitter, and Facebook, even customize the album artwork with friends' photos and let your friends and followers stream free previews of your music. For the real music aficionados, PLAY also integrates AOL Music News to keep you current on the latest music industry highlights.

Spiritual guru and AOL Mobile First Senior Director Sol Lipman said, "The Kindle Fire can't get much more awesome, but somehow we made beautiful babies together with PLAY. It's the best social music experience on the Fire, and I say that because I'm only mostly unbiased. Look, just stop reading and go try it."
