Spotify

In 1996, people in the U.S. bought about 2.3 albums per year. Today, thanks to services like Spotify and Rdio, some of us listen to that many albums a day. Last-minute concert ticket app WillCall wants to make live music just as accessible. This week it released version 1.5 of its iOS app, which delivers push notifications to your feeds about the shows your friends are going to. WillCall picks the best concerts in town, strikes deals with the promoters, and sells tickets through its app in the few days leading up to the show. Read the full story at TechCrunch.
