How much does MusicTapp cost?
See the Pricing page for full pricing details. We charge a one-time fee per application platform (discounted pricing is available for bulk purchases) plus monthly Content Hosting fees.
Why do I have to pay Content Hosting fees?
Content Hosting fees are mandatory fees to support hosting your digital content data associated with your MusicTapp app. This content data consists of music, photos, videos, etc. uploaded; only newly uploaded content data is sent to fans and users who request it when they open the app.
If Content Hosting payment is discontinued, we will issue a disruption of Content Hosting services notice within 15 days. Therefore new content will not be downloaded to new apps, thus rendering the app non-functional.
Should I charge my fans for my app?
No. It is our policy to give apps away free to fans. Remember MusicTapp is a platform to help artists and labels promote their music. Free distribution will yield higher saturation.
How long does it takes to receive my app?
Turnaround times for Android are between 3-5 business days from the time you upload your complete data into your account after purchase. After approval allow an additional 1-2 business days to be loaded into Google’s Android Market.
*Turnaround times for iOS are between 4-6 business days from the time you upload your complete data into your account after purchase. After approval allow an additional 10-21 business days to be loaded into Apple’s iTunes App Store.
