RippleTunes is a music discovery platform containing 50 million songs designed to facilitate the discovery of new music. It’s organised as an alternative storefront built onto the iTunes database thanks to an Enterprise Partnership with Apple’s iTunes.
RippleTunes also correlates the iTunes database with the YouTube database via on-the-fly API requests meaning that users can freely listen to entire albums of music where songs have been made available. RippleTunes is also a promotional platform for emerging artists
In the language-learning segment, amongst schools, private teachers and online lessons, grouping together students is something that only schools are able to achieve effectively. Almost every private teacher who tries to organise group lessons fails due to organisational challenges it presents (requiring a venue, finding a mutually convenient slot and handling cancellations).
Lingualist brings a set of organisational tools to the hands of private teachers to resolve all of these issues to a community of teachers and learners thanks to an innovative booking system.
