John from the Music App Blog makes a lot of good points around pricing in this post, and just how lucky we are to have these kinds of prices for music apps. I like his option 5 under the “long term survival of the species”. But it reminded me that I’d talked about this two years ago in this piece on platforms and models, and in fact, if you go back further, this is something Alex tried to do to fund the initial launch of Sunvox (that’s pre-iOS by the way). Subscriptions are hard, and let’s face it, we weren’t ready back then and we’re not ready now, so will it actually ever work?
