As for the music creation apps, it does look very odd indeed. Not that there’s anything wrong with the 3 apps in there, but I do wonder how they got their list?


  1. Cocaine and prostitutes. Does anyone care what those washed up old media has-beens think? Of anything they claim to have the authority to rate I can't think of one they have less actual authority in than music apps. I would care more what Pitchfork thought, but not nearly as much as I care what this blog or CDM thought.

  2. Developer here. I don't have the e-mail anymore, but it really was pay-to-play for the music creation category. The e-mail was asking developers to submit there apps for a huge fee (a few hundred dollars). Then they said they would pick 3. Personally, I don't think this “competition” is the best way to spend marketing money…
