Music app BOOMiO closes, but promises future return

BOOMiO canvasBOOMiO has shut down its music service. GeekWire reported that the company emailed its users that the group had shuttered BOOMiO in order to rethink the product. A message on the app’s website promised that the team is planning “a fresh BOOMiO experience.”

BOOMiO’s business model focused on fair payments, with a Verified Artist program designed to encourage participation from performers. On the user side, social shares of a track earned listeners another play of it, or they could opt to purchase the song on iTunes.

This is the latest in a recent wave of fledgling music services to close. Tapely and also shuttered in recent weeks.
