AOL Launches Developer Tools For Music Feeds

AOL on Thursday launched a set of software tools for Web developers and bloggers to add custom feeds from the portal's Music Now site.

The AOL Music Now Web Services provide the tools for feeding artist, album, play list and other dynamic music information to other Web sites, blogs or AOL's recently launched AIM Pages. The latter is a set of separate tools for building a personal Web page.

The latest set of tools builds on AOL efforts in providing application programming interfaces, or APIs, that lets developers incorporate in Web sites AOL's AIM instant messaging services, MapQuest mapping service and Winamp music player.

Music Now is an online music subscription service that AOL acquired from Circuit City in November 2005.
