Jammbox‘s Discovr is an iPad app which enables users to find the music they like by creating personalised magazines around their preferences. In true hacker style, musical content including audio, video, images, and text are collected from across the web and from industry APIs, and integrated into a rich content app. Jammbox is subscription-based, with a freemium business model.
Next Big Sound is a B2B platform that provides online music analytics and insights. It measures the growth and popularity of hundreds of thousands of artists across all the major web properties such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia, and many more. Music industry professionals pay a monthly subscription for access to a premium service.
Shuffler.fm, the B2C category winner, is internet radio made by music blogs. It allows users to surf the music web without having to weed through thousands of music blogs one by one. Great idea!
