Thanks for the Feedback

We want  to say thank you for all of your feedback, both the good, the not-so-good and for letting us know the ways in which we can improve. Running a startup and being an independent artist have a lot of similarities, namely, starting with only an idea from scratch and the desire to make it come true.

We did not create SPR to be a temporary solution for the music industry, but rather to change the game completely and in order to do this we need your help. So if you have any suggestions, ideas, feedback or want to let us know of the things we are doing right, please feel free to send us a message to Thank you

AppsWorld Germany will be bringing together over 150 exhibitors and 6,000+ attendees from across the app ecosystems in Eastern Europe and beyond. If you happen to be in the Berlin area during this time, please make sure to stop by, we'd love to meet you.

SPR's first, Martin Neuhold

I often read about other companies and how they began. It really intrigues me to learn about their journeys to success, including their "firsts" such as the first Tweet, or Instagram post. This got me thinking about ours as well. And, being that it is a new year, I can't think of a better time to give a shout out to the very first artist on SmartPhoneRecords, Martin Neuhold (@MartinNeuhold1).

I'll be honest.  When we first launched, I seriously doubted that SPR would work. Even with all the  testing that took place, there was no escaping the anxiety of we felt of actually going "live."  
But that all changed the morning after we launched when we heard an unfamiliar alert sounding from our phone.  We instantly looked at one another, then at the phone, and saw our very first artist, Martin Neuhold. His music was actually in our record store. "IT WORKS!," we yelled out. We were blown away, and we were hooked. Martin, a self-described "chillout and ambient artist from Rosenheim, Germany."  From that moment we knew the game changed, and we knew things would never be the same. So be sure to checkout two of his tracks titled  "Dunluce" & "Hvalur" located in the record store. And a monstrous "thank you" to Martin for giving us a chance.
