Listing for the 60s went live on MySwar in Feb. You can find them here.
New features.Other than some bug fixes and a few UI/UX related changes, we added these features this month:
- Categorized search suggestions – As you type in the Search box, we provide suggestions categorized as Albums, Songs and Artists to make it easier for you to find the item you are looking for.
- Advanced search – Available as a sub-menu on hovering over the existing Search menu, Advanced Search lets you find songs by specifying the singer, music director, lyricist, period and genre. This works great when you want to see a listing of all R.D. Burman songs sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle and penned by Gulzar. Or Kumar Sanu’s songs from the early 1990s. Or Lata’s ghazals for Madan Mohan. For now, this is an AND search. In other words, songs matching all the criteria specified by you are shown. I like this feature the best!
- Browse awards – All the award-winning songs and artists are now available easily.
- Trivia of the day – There is a lot of trivia on MySwar and we’re making it easier for you to uncover them by picking one every day and putting it on the home page. The trivia will also be tweeted out three times a day from our Twitter account. Follow us now if you are a trivia buff!
- Ability to change ratings – This is for the registered users. If you have rated songs or albums and wanted to change them, this feature is for you. In the MyAccount page on the My Ratings tab, you can go ahead and change your ratings and also delete them if you want.
While we have a long list of features we want to implement, this list was prioritized based on feedback from many of you.
Do tell us what you think of these features.
