BandApp allows you to build a mobile app for free… sort of. Unlike companies that charge a sizeable fee to build and list a custom app for you in the major app stores, Bandapp lives outside that ecosystem as a website. Users point fans to their app with QR codes and links. The app is wrapped into a discovery platform, so you can find music from other BandApp users. It has been variably referred to as “hell-bent on becoming the mobile replacement for MySpace” and “like WordPress for music mobile apps”. If you’re a band that wants a mobile app but can’t afford the real deal, Bandapp is a great option. Their interface makes it easy for users to add your app’s icon to their device, which makes it nearly indistinguishable from a “real” app. It’s so easy to use and has so much value from being free, we think it’s a must-have in any artist’s portfolio.
