Listening To Music On Smartphones Explodes

When starting any sort of business, you usually need some sort of investment to get things rolling.  There is a small irony here – banks won’t give you any money unless you have statistical data of how such a business operates and makes money.  But businesses with fresh ideas tend to have a head start on one that is already an accepted idea.  So if you want to bring a new idea to the market, it is kind of difficult to get backers on your side with very little research in advance.  The music industry can be a risky place to venture, but there is tons of data out there on how the music world is constantly evolving and changing.

Looking at a chart in terms of years easily proves how mobile music is quickly becoming an accepted form of listening. You can see a small but steady rise in the number of people using their phone to access digital music.  Meanwhile, we also see a decline in users who are actually transferring audio from their computers to their listening devices using traditional methods.  What this means is that the technology has simply made it a lot easier to deal with than before.
