Shine 2009 feat. Paula Abdul “So Free”
From their Realism album, released last month on Cascine. It’s begging for a House remix treatment. You can download the single for free as a 128kbps MP3 on spinner.com. Or buy the high quality file from iTunes and Amazon.
I first heard this song in the “MP3 of the Day” section of PLAY, one of the apps I’m currently working on. It’s been available for Android since March, and the iPhone version will be coming out soon.
One of the top Tech stories today (according to Zite) revolves around the purported change in the way apps are ranked in the App Store and Android Market. The speculation is that the ranking is now based mostly on usage rather than downloads.
I’ve always questioned the validity of download numbers as a meaningful metric. If a million people downloaded your app, but only a hundred are actively using it, you’re not winning. I have 417 iPhone and iPad apps on my Mac, but I only use 24 regularly.
Why did it take Apple and Google this long to make the change?
