People used different ways to compose and transmit their music since ancient times. It was an essential part of their everyday lives including ceremonies, weddings, funerals, and other essential processes. The situation hardly changed over the years. Moreover, we can say that music place even bigger role affecting such fundamental aspects like morality, emotions, and culture.
While the world keeps going mobile, we are witnessing the rapid evolution of mobile music apps as well. Today we are going to track the way the music-streaming app evolved. We will guide you the entire way from the phonograph to music applications like Noizio and Spotify.
From Classic Record Stores
Music consumption has a richer history if compared with launching Spotify in 2008. The first ever record stores appeared many decades ago featuring literally prehistoric roots. At those times, people were unable to download favorite melodies on their mobile devices with just a click. The process of purchasing a new vinyl or tape record always brought some special feelings. The smell of the new package, the print on it and the anticipation before you get the record out of the box. How did we actually lose all that?
Spotify – the Revolutionary Release
The year 2008 appeared to be a revolution for the music industry in general as well as the mobile market. The introduction of the Spotify streaming app took the audience by storm resulting in over 15 million paid subscriptions. However, such great results appeared to be not enough to cope with the application’s operating cost. Spotify appeared to be a streaming pioneer. Its release has proved that developers still had much work to do the make the niche profitable enough.
Several other products were launch during that period including Jay-Z's TIDAL. The app appeared to be nothing but a commercial disappointment. The rap superstar decided to protect TIDAL positions with the help of Twitter launching an enormous campaign to support TIDAL. The main problem with the app is the fact it does not offer free subscriptions. On the other hand, the plans are so low that anyone can afford it. The question is do users really need TIDAL considering apps like Mixcloud and SoundCloud with a free access to a huge collection of tracks and sets.
Chilling Music Apps
The mobile app trends are changing rapidly. People search for more listening opportunities and sounds diversity. For this reason, apps like Noizio started gaining popularity. They offer a unique approach to a particular category of listeners. The app is perfect for people who are involved in yoga, meditation or simply want to get away from stress. It provides a selection of amazing chilling sounds of nature. Get away from the rat race and find your spot of tranquility in this crazy old!
