Yes. It has 1.5 billion monthly active users.
True, though I guess lots of product companies don't want it to be too easy to see their team and each employee's role, as it makes it a lot simpler for other companies/recruiters to know who to get in touch with.
Edit: My bad, this was actually meant as a reply for Daryl's comment. I'm very silly.
From this and your tweets you seem to care a large amount about disliking this website.
Sorry, I should have been more clear. By huge, I didn't mean mass-market, take over the world huge, I just meant enough for Tidal to be potentially sustainable. It's definitely true about Spotify, but I wouldn't assume that they haven't done anything because they've tested and proven it, more likely that there's just never been any pressure. Just a theory though :)
That's definitely a good point that the physical different, even self-claimed experts, would hear isn't even substantial. But the psychological difference of knowingly paying for quality is what would turn people to this product.
As for the bandwidth problem, has this been proven to be a problem yet from Tidal users? Not saying that you're wrong, as it would make sense, but just to substantiate your point with proof before calling BS.
I think this is totally fair, you make a good argument. By huge I didn't mean mass market huge, but enough to make a product worthwhile. I doubt it'll have anywhere near the splash that Jay-Z and co are hoping for, but that's not really a surprise to anyone.
Spotify is the better product, both in terms of functionality and mass appeal, but I think a lot of the hate directed towards Tidal is regarding who made it, rather than what it is.
But cheers for the response though, always good to hear the other side :)
Aside from the obvious problem with the design that this is thread is about, I think it's pretty naive to write off the app just because of the price.
There is a huge market of people who seriously care about music quality, and are more than willing to pay the extra 10 bucks over Spotify. It's far too early to say whether this will be enough to make the app successful, but genuine hi-fi streaming is a substantial selling point, even though many people seem to think $20 is some sort of unbelievable price to pay for proper quality music.
This is a great app but please do not trust the founder Marcel Wichmann with your nude pictures. He will distribute them without hesitation.
Very easily, actually.
Huh? Every other article you've read on responsive design has been insane?
