Seeing the details of this set me thinking, I mean thinking a lot. It is quite amazing to me to think about how far mobile music has come in under 5 years. When I started writing this blog it would have seemed laughable to suggest that the future of any kind of music was to be found in a mobile device. A lot has changed.
The other thing that has changed a great deal is that a much wider range of musicians are interested in mobile. It isn’t any more an area for hobbyists and amateurs as it was, but now lots of pro musicians and music companies are getting in on the mobile scene, and that’s a good thing. In fact, lots of the bigger sites and blogs are now talking about mobile on a regular basis which hardly ever happened before.
When I started the blog mobile music was niche and very much for the amateurs (and I include myself in that description). Now there are lots of great sites and blogs providing information on apps, hardware and more. Mobile music is becoming much more professional and much more mainstream.
All this makes me wonder where we should go next with Palm Sounds, what should it be for? I’d really like to hear your views on this. What do you want from Palm Sounds in the future, what do you think it should be for? Is there still a need for it?
All your views are welcome.
