Streaming apps like songs

by Cesare Rocchi


Among the many ideas that I heard to redesign the App Store I heard the one of “streaming apps”. It goes like this: pay a monthly fee and you can use this, this and that app (much like the Adobe Creative Cloud). In all the conversations I had the idea has been dismissed pretty quickly. In case you are taking it seriously check what’s going with streaming in the indie music industry.

To raise their royalties just by a bit they are asking fans to loop indie music non stop. I don’t blame them at all, I think that the situation is even worse than with app developers.
