A possible solution to the Smartphone/MP3 problem?

25 September, 2013

There is a bit of a gremlin in AndrewJohnson world at the moment.

How do you get my MP3s onto a mobile device if you can't sync from a desktop/laptop?

Here are the issues as I see them and a possible solution - I would like your opinions on the matter....

There are lots of recordings that I am being asked for that we simply can't release as apps.
In order to release these recordings, I have to make them MP3 format.
Mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads etc can't download MP3 files directly.. The files need to be downloaded to desktop/laptop, added to iTunes and synched that way.  Android has the same problem I suspect.
The only way to download an MP3 directly to an iPhone etc is to get it through iTunes, BUT.. iTunes controls the prices and, as they regard my MP3s as albums, they charge 3-4x what I do on my site.
More and more people are using mobile devices as their only means of accessing the internet.

So, here is a solution......

What if I gave an option of streaming the files to your device?

What if, when you bought an MP3, you were given an option of creating an account with a user name and password, and when signed in, you would have access to your MP3 files, which, with one click, would play seamlessly on your mobile device.

You would also be able to access your purchases at any point on any device simply by signing in.

No downloading... no loss of files if your phone goes missing...  and a simple interface that is as easy as an app to operate.

I'd love your feedback on this - let me know on:
