Client Overview

Our client provides a popular music-based social network platform, a combination of a social media website and music streaming services. It is meant for artists to promote their songs and events online while enhancing the social experience of the users for streaming music.

It is an interactive app where artists can sell music and receive payments. A cloud-based social networking platform was designed and developed by the developers of Saffron Tech for both website & mobile applications where artists can create their accounts and upload singles or multiple songs in an album for sale.

Since it’s a messaging app, too, each fan can follow, comment, or like the favorite songs of their artist. They can also send message requests to an artist or other fans present on the platform. Our experts offered native app development services and an ASP.Net solution that helps them maintain a large audience base with APIs & an admin Panel on both app and website.
