Vela is a voice controller for music that aggregates music services Spotify, Rhapsody, Rdio. Help us finish building Vela!
What is Vela
Vela is a music aggregator that currently includes Spotify, Rhapsody, Rdio. You say a song or artist, Vela listens, and searches one of these sites for your songs and plays it back for you. You speak. Vela hears. Music plays.
Why we're on Kickstarter.
Vela started development in 2010 (2 full years ago!) but, like so many app developers went through some hard times with not so great programmers, time delays, missed deadlines, and broken promises and it used almost all of our funds. The goods news. We've now put together a stellar team! (of all US employees) We've been able to put together a great first app with very limited resources and extremely quickly.
The problem is that it's not finished. We had planned to also include some of the free music services like Youtube and 8Tracks to give an option to those who don't want to purchase a subscription for music. We also wanted to build and Android version. And today those additions are still our 2 biggest requests.
Help us complete Vela and have a voice control music application that can be used by everyone regardless of iPhone or Android or if they use paid of free legal music!
If you don’t have a music subscription you will get a free trail when you purchase Vela. But we're also working to integrate free music radio with Youtube and 8Tracks as well.
