Tidal App Leaves iTunes Top 700, Is A 'Spectacular Flop'


Tidal has always felt like a wave that was about to crash, and the numbers reported today by BGR revealed that it was a Justin Guarini-level flop.

Two weeks after Tidal briefly cracked the U.S. iPhone top 20 download chart, the app has crashed out of the top 700.

A dang QR code reader is currently #96 and Tidal can’t even break the top 700!

This would all be quite sad if Tidal hasn’t been founded by some of the industry’s wealthiest most successful musicians as a way of squeezing even more money out of their devoted fans, but because it was, there’s nothing to cry about. The people have spoken and they prefer Spotify and Pandora.

They also like downloading everything all for free.

Anything but Tidal, really.
