Tidal App Leaves iTunes Top 700, Is A 'Spectacular Flop'

Tidal has always felt like a wave that was about to crash, and the numbers reported today by BGR revealed that it was a Justin Guarini-level flop.

Two weeks after Tidal briefly cracked the U.S. iPhone top 20 download chart, the app has crashed out of the top 700.

A dang QR code reader is currently #96 and Tidal can’t even break the top 700!

This would all be quite sad if Tidal hasn’t been founded by some of the industry’s wealthiest most successful musicians as a way of squeezing even more money out of their devoted fans, but because it was, there’s nothing to cry about. The people have spoken and they prefer Spotify and Pandora.

I feel like I’m one of the few people that download all their music from iTunes. I probably spend about $10-$20 a month, which really isn’t a lot and just makes my life so much easier than trying to finagle a way to get free music. Also, I like having all the album artwork on iTunes, for some strange reason.
