Enhancing the Mobile Music Experience

Two of the great side-effects of the current smartphone boom are the big gains in the number of mobile music consumers as well the increased appetite for music related apps. However, with more and more music fans turning to their mobile devices to listen to, learn about their favorite artists and share their experiences, it becomes increasingly important for app builders and developers to not only drive fan engagement but also to help fans find the information they are looking for via an elegant and simple user interface. It also means “mobile” as a distinct entity will become even more important for artists and their teams and will start to demand more expertise and partnerships.
