MICHAEL ROBERTSON doesn't give up, and this time he's taking on PANDORA.
The serial entrepreneur and founder of the original music business disruptor MP3.COM, despite losing a $12 million lawsuit to UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP and $41 million to EMI (NET NEWS, 3/27) over the subsequent MP3TUNES, is back with some more disruptive technology in his new music app '6 SECONDS, according to HYPEBOT.COM.
The new iOS and ANDROID app "combines the ease of PANDORA with much of the control of SPOTIFY all for free on mobile."
By tapping into 100,000 broadcast and online radio stations globally, 6 SECONDS offers the promise of a free digital jukebox with unlimited skips. Selecting a genre plays the most popular songs from that style as determined by what stations DJs are playing. Skipping songs is performed by a quick swipe anywhere on the screen.
6 Seconds also includes search capability that helps users find a specific song or artist. It scans 100,000 online radio stations for a specific song or artist in under a second. If located, users can tune into the broadcast with a simple click on the title to connect them directly to that station.
"6 Seconds is the first free mobile music experience with unlimited skips and search so music listeners can hear the songs they desire, more often," says ROBERTSON. "Listeners can favorite any song and at anytime, quickly search for their faves playing anywhere in the world."
