How does the web app look and feel to use?

Music offers a sleek experience that works well for its musical focus. The application favors a dark grey background with black headers. The black and white design is offset by blue buttons found near the center of each profile page. The color scheme is minimal, but creates an eye-catching contrast and adds just enough variety. The layout is well-organized and very easy to follow.

How does the registration process work?

Music is an information resource for music fans. The application doesn’t offer anything that would require a registration. There are no personalization features. Users simply visit and begin searching for musicians. No registration option is offered at this time, which is a good thing. It keeps the user experience as simple and hassle-free as possible. Additional features might warrant the use of an account, but for the time being Music gives the user what they came for and asks for nothing in return.

What does it cost to use the application?

Music doesn’t require an account, which also means all access is free. There are no subscriptions required and the user doesn’t have to make any purchases. Anyone can visit the website anytime and search as often as they like. The website doesn’t assault users with advertisements to buy MP3s or music merchandise, either. This keeps the experience pleasant and appealing for all users who just want to learn a little more about their favorite musicians.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Music is a great tool for anyone who loves music. The application covers all genres so just about anyone can find something interesting. The interface is very clean and easy to use. No personal information is needed to access all features and the user never has to pay to explore the website. The lack of advertisements is a pleasant surprise that should encourage users to return.
