Bands Bypass iTunes By Offering Streaming Music Apps In App Store

An interesting trend has popped up with iPhone apps released by bands. While Apple offers no streaming music service in iTunes, several bands have started releasing paid apps in the App Store that stream the band’s music to the device. The latest of these bands is Presidents of the United States of America, who is offering streaming access to their entire discography for just $3 with the app The Presidents’ Music – PUSA [$2.99]. Could this be the next big trend?
