budtobud - how it all started
On a Transatlantic flight a few years ago, Patrick wanted to listen to music with his girlfriend. With no headphone jack splitter, the best they could do was to load the same tunes on two different smartphones from his PC and resort to pushing play simultaneously on both devices. “Lame,” he thought. “There’s got to be a better way to listen to music together without all the hassle.” That was the spark. Patrick and Kurt then got their heads together and budtobud was formed. They got a team put together, starting building prototypes, and forged budtobud into what it is today.
Now budtobud delivers an experience where you listen to music with your friends, no matter where they are. First, you see what your friends are playing in their media players in real-time and vice versa without having to subscribe, upload or search a third-party library. If you see a friend listening to something interesting, you can ask them if you can join in listening with them. When that happens, you are transported to listening to your friend’s music with them as if you were in the same room. Other friends can join and soon you’ve got a Party on your hands. You can chat from within the app, save or buy your new favorite songs, and share your experiences to your favorite social networks,
We really hope that you enjoy it to. We’ve got big plans for where budtobud goes from here but we’d love your feedback and thoughts about what you’d like to see in the future.
See you on budtobud!
