Despite Lawsuits, Michael Robertson Returns To Take Pandora With New ‘Six Seconds’ App
From Mp3.com to Mp3Tunes, Michael Robertson has never been afraid to take on the music industry; and that's often landed him in court. In fact, lawyers for Universal Music are still arguing over whether $12M is enough for their work winning a "pyrrhic victory" over Mp3Tunes. Unphased, he's back with new music app Six Seconds.
By tapping into 100,000 broadcast and online radio stations globally, 6 Seconds offers the promise of a free digital jukebox with unlimited skips. Selecting a genre plays the most popular songs from that style as determined by what stations DJs are playing. Skipping songs is performed by a quick swipe anywhere on the screen.
6 Seconds also includes search capability that helps users find a specific song or artist. In under a second, it scans 100,000 online radio stations for a specific song or artist. If located, they can tune into the broadcast with a simple click on the title which will connect them directly to that station.
"6 Seconds is the first free mobile music experience with unlimited skips and search so music listeners can hear the songs they desire, more often," says Robertson. "Listeners can favorite any song and at anytime, quickly search for their faves playing anywhere in the world."
Pretty neat, but what will the lawyers think?
