Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of BeatsMusic by now. I’ve been playing around with it on and off for the past week — username @jnassi on BeatsMusic — and I find it having enough promise to keep using it. You can read lots and lots of reviews elsewhere about the service and the mobile app. I haven’t spent enough hands-on time with BeatsMusic yet to give it a full review, but it did deliver a result like this:
Where am I going with this, though?
BeatsMusic headquarters is my neighbor. I can step out of my front door and see the employees hard at work. I stood behind them in line at the local coffee shop after they pulled all-nighters leading up to the launch. I cleaned up my dogs’ poop from their parking lot.
So I wish them luck. It’s the neighborly thing to do.
One thing I will say about BeatsMusic… their streaming buffer sucks. I’m on good wifi, and every song gets interrupted at least once.
I’ll end that last comment. The buffer on the web version sucks. The iOS mobile app handles it MUCH better.
