  1. Brilliant!! As much as I love RN, it’s kinda felt like they had plateaued out. Mobile app and functionality is a huge step forward. Now, if only they could keep artists informed about Ping progress and develop some HTML5 media widgets (I’d like my widgets to be iOS compatible) they’d be ticking more of my boxes.

  2. Just brilliant another way to present ‘jacked’ statistics to the masses and have artists believe it.
