Meeting Marcus Padrini from

I think I’ve know Marcus for about three years now although until a couple of weeks ago we’d never met. That’s understandable as he lives in Brazil. So it was great to finally meet him whilst he was in London a couple of weeks ago.

Marcus has been writing MusicApps for a number of years now, and I remember chatting with him on facebook early on. It’s so good to see how both Marcus and the site have kept going and have grown since then. is now the go to site for mobile music in Brazil and indeed for Portuguese speakers.

It was great to catch up with Marcus and talk about everything mobile music. Everything from apps to hardware and back again. But then that’s what happens when mobile music bloggers get together.

I hope to see musicapps go from strength to strength and especially more of Marcus’ videos, which are excellent.

If I’m ever in Brazil, I’m checking in with Marcus.
