SAN FRANCISCO, CA – ZapTunes (http://www.zaptunes.com/), the website that shook the music industry by offering consumers to download free MP3 songs, broke the tragic news of their immediate shutdown to its thousands of users on Monday. As Zaptunes users, unwilling to see Zaptunes go, kept commenting on a blog post the company posted on Monday, a company email was sent to all its users breaking the news. “Zaptunes was the best free music downloads service I have encountered, and Rhapsody, iTunes, and Pandora will never compare,” Julie Kyler, a dedicated user commented.
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.
