appLoud is a new mobile app that allows users view live concert feeds of their favorite artists. These live videos are uploaded by fans, and are tagged to the artist’s Twitter handle and genre hashtag. The app will then automatically connects to iTunes and concert tickets, and allows fans tip the artists.
The app empowers fans to help support artists through allowing them give a minimum US$1 via in-app credit card transaction powered by Stripe. The fans must first create an account or sign in via Twitter or Facebook before entering the desired amount of money. 10 percent of the tips will then go to appLoud to affiliate fees towards music and ticket sales; the rest goes to the artists.
According to TechCrunch, the app is still in its angel Investor phase and is currently focusing on London, New York and Los Angeles.
