Smartphone Manufacturers Urged to Focus on 7 Core Apps

When I saw the title of this post at Brighthand I was ready to get annoyed as I expected the ‘7 Core Apps’ to exclude music making applications. However, the 7 are:

  • email
  • games
  • social networking
  • instant messaging
  • mapping & directions
  • music & radio
  • weather

So, no. 6 on the list and in with radio too. Still, music is there in the 7 ‘core’ apps. My guess is that for most manufacturers music won’t mean music making but will be focused on player apps and connecting to services like Spotify etc.

However, having said all that, it is a step in the right direction. I think so anyway.
