Android: Musicassette works with Android phones 4.0 or above that have NFC capabilities. In other words there are currently over 1000 types of devices with which Musicassette will work and hopefully one of them is yours.
Go to your Phone's System Settings --> Wireless and Network --> Look for NFC --> Swipe it to ON. If this setting exists you can scan NFC Tags. Check the compatibility list.
Apple: Their native NFC Chips can only perform mobile transactions. To solve this problem, we created an "Apple Box" kit where you will find an QR code in order to interact with cassette sticker.
Supporting market trends
The data are clear: The demand for cassette in the past year has had a 74% increase, reaching a total of more than 129,000 cassettes sold only in 2016 in the US. (Nielsen Music 2016 data) .
Musicassette is inserted in this context, redefining certain assets and bringing a new way to self-publish and share music out of the digital world.

Risks and challenges
The NFC sticker with cassette design is very straightforward to produce. There is very little risk in this area as we have partnered with a great NFC tag manufacturer in the UK who is one of the best in the business.
The Software that goes along with the Musicassette is a bit more complicated as we have to develop a rather complex application and platform to process all the music uploads.
We have allowed 3-months for building & testing the software and our software team believe we will be able to do it much sooner, however we would prefer to be conservative in our estimation.
We think Musicassette is great and provide a really easy & unique way to create a kind of analog mixtape directly through your phone
