Apps Are The Future of Music!

Apps (Applications, not appetizers!) are considered by most to be the future of the music industry.  The Jango Radio app (jango.com/mobile), just as an example, already has millions of users and listeners all over the world, and this number will only grow as more and more people on Earth gain access to mobile devices and downloadable apps.

Our friends over at MUSIC THINK TANK recently posted great little article about the rough start but eventual huge success and impact apps are having and will continue to have on the entire music industry.
