These are the biggest music streaming services worldwide

October 2014

YourEDM posted about a study Billboard published last week, in which they ranked music services by their paid subscribers.

Spotify came out on top, with over ten million subscribers worldwide.

Spotify, of course, was #1. But what about the other seven? The only other ones I recognize on the list are Rhapsody, Sony Radio Unlimited, and Google Play All Access. The others seem to be much more prevalent and well-established in other parts of the world such as Mexico, Europe and South America.

While developing Denied I had no doubt in my mind that Spotify should be the first service it supports, but the localized popularity of music streaming services makes it tougher than you might expect to determine which service to add the list.

This is so cool! Denied is currently being featured on Product Hunt and has an article on Lifehacker!

Denied actually stayed in the top 5 products on the Product Hunt homepage for most of the day, gathering 85 upvotes in total and increasing the amount of downloads quite a bit. I’m even more content with the comments that were added.

Marc Köhlbrugge, who has been running Denied since it appeared on Beta List, said this:

Been using this for a while now. I listen to a lot of hiphop which often contains skits which can be a little annoying at times. Denied makes it super easy to automatically skip them.

Super smart. I’ve also heard people using Denied to skip live-sessions in the same way. If you have figured out other clever ways to make Denied do great things, let me know!

Denied is out now!

September 2014

Version 1.0.0 is now available via the Mac App Store!

Starting today, bands you can’t stand will no longer annoy you while listening to Spotify. With Denied you can:

  • Skip songs by artist, title or album.
  • Specify match criteria: starts with, ends with, contains or equals to.
  • Optionally show notifications when a song is skipped.
  • Keep track of how often a rule is used.
  • Quickly suppress rules or temporarily stop skipping entirely.
