YouTube has removed over 2 billion views from videos posted by recording companies such as Universal and Sony after it was found they had made arrangements with certain websites to pay money to increase their video’s viewcounts.
Audium was designed from the ground up to encourage the user to appreciate albums in their entirety, the way the artist had orignally intended. Common distractions such as track lists and custom playlists are removed, thereby putting the album front and centre. No nonsense, just music. Beautiful.
Audium is a really lovely little music app who’s purpose driven features and overall intent appeal to what we believe in. It even caused me to rethink the music I keep on my iPhone a bit — swapping out playlists of a bunch of songs I kind of love for full albums I really love.
