Chinmayi is the first female playback singer to have iOS
Chennai: Chinmayi has become the first female playback singer in India to have an iOS (Operating System) application exclusively developed for her, which can be used on an iPad or on `iPhone" to help leverage her skills on the global arena.
This will also help her go in for newer collaborations, besides giving her an opportunity to meet domestic and international music directors.
"It will be easier for me to tell a musician somewhere in the US or Egypt, (most musicians have iPhones or smartphones), to download the app and listen to what I have released in music," Chinmayi told PTI.
She said the application could lead to opening of a "lot of doors" not only for her, but also to aspiring singers. Industry experts say international singers have a similar application that can run on various operating systems like Windows and Android to compete on the global arena.
To develop the application, Chinmayi was helped by US-based Dakshaa LLC, promoted by serial entrepreneur Naveen Varadharajan.
Recalling how the concept of developing an application evolved, Chinmayi said it was Varadarajan`s idea to develop an exclusive applicaton.
"When I was in the US he told me to release an app. I of course was apprehensive, wondering who would want to see an app released by me... (But) I can see the response I am getting today..", she said.
