Track ID

Why is Track ID shutting down? 

It's the only functional app. Shazam is crap.

Re: Track ID

That's a very profound sounding answer.

 

I looked up the internet and nobody, literary nobody was after asking the developer teams, I mean, even the Wiped page was updated but no interview with the team at Sony. I understand Sony has its own business plans and we ain't sneak into it, but as someone who works on apps and wishes to inspires others to make a living out of it, I am interested to know why apps shut down and why they are successful, TrackID from developing points of view seemed a success, at least, to me, but perhaps for Sony it wasn't worth the hassle. As currently, nobody else is interested, mind you, I ask, if we could contact someone in Sony developer team of TrackID, probably the guy(s) who started TrackId or those who were currently the main responsible, and get a story?

 

Thanks

 

PS. We will publish the interview / story on The Lost Ideas Lab Journal or as well any other platform that Sony wishes

Re: Track ID

I Accepted that vaio can shut because of no profit (though it was really hard). But why Track Id (there is no reason for that. That app is just amazing and loved by everyone). SONY, not expected it from you to let your loyal fans down. Very much disappointed. No words left.

Re: Track ID

You are so right! Shazam sux. Track I'd used to identify song and artist. Shazam seems to be able to only identify the song, presenting you with a totally different artist. Perhaps that's how they earn their money?

For Sony (Team):

 

But from device impossible to remove this app (re-installed with operating system), maybe let's do everything to the end and Sony maybe can release small update with possible to delete these app official and to say good bye and thanks for long good years? Slightly smiling Face

 

For others:

 

I don't know Shazam, on Sony Bravia TV i have TrackID which working and will not be stopped, but TrackID is not perfect too, most tracks which i looked up did not found too, last time when i looked up TrackID did not found one of The Divergent Series: Ascendant - Joseph Trapanese's track, how i saw most soundtrack finding, so i was little suprised when TrackID did not found it Slightly smiling Face
