Zaptunes offered its users unlimited music downloads for a staggering 25 dollars a month, capturing the attention of its numerous competitors, such as upcoming Google Music, Spotify, and Last.fm. The deal stirred up quite an uproar in the music community, as angry music bloggers despised the attention Zaptunes received. Determined to ruin Zaptunes popularity, many bloggers accused Zaptunes of being a fraud without proper evidence to backup their accusations.
The free music download company also received positive recognition by its thousands of users. Zaptunes users were disappointed to see their favorite place to download free music shutting down in just three short months. Hundreds of users commented on the company blog post to show their support and loyalty to Zaptunes.
“You have not seen the end of Zaptunes yet,” the blog post said, “we will be back cheaper, stronger, and unlimited forever.” Despite its negative publicity, the impact of unlimited music downloads and Zaptunes was covered in various media outlets and music blogs. Providing further information, the company email said that zaptunes.com will go offline in a week.
