Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Aurora App amplifies your surroundings by streaming exclusive music composed by local artists to your area.
Aurora detects your geo-location and based on that starts streaming a song composed by a local artist to that specific street, address or area.
Rediscover your city through "ECHOES". Exclusive tracks are created by artists and then attached to a location, users can then listen to these echoes or songs while being close to the location where the tracks are set.
Learn about the artists, collect bios and read the stories of each songs.
Aurora lets you also find the perfect song through "MoodSwings". This feature allows you to gently shake your mobile device to find the perfect song.
We continue to add more cities into the Aurora engine. So stay tuned for more echoes.
What's New in Version 1.1
It is a great idea, but its missing something.
I love that it lets you discover new music by location, but what happens when you leave that location? It doesn't link you anywhere. Also, I would like a way to go back and listen to bands that I've previously discovered. When I am at home there is only one song that repeats. That makes the app useless. Then when I do end up in an area where I could discover many artists, I will most likely be using my music player or pandora. I think you should make it a type of music player, where you can save discoveries. This way a user will be using the app and it won't get tucked into a folder. And while they are using it and the come across a new song location it can pop up.
This works great for people who turn off notifications.
This is a great idea but it needs more artists.
