Discovr developed a discovery application for various content : music, movies, applications, people. After entering a search, results appear as round icons scattered on a plan.
In the Music version, clicking on an icon reveals six new artists belonging to the same musical universe as the original selection. For each of these icons, several actions are possible, listen to 30 second extracts of the most popular tracks, obtain bio, share on social networks or new broaden the search by clicking again on an icon.
Be careful not to open too many icons at once, after a few minutes of use, the map of results can become somewhat complex and the user would tend to get lost in his research.
+ Showing results clear and legible connections between artists.
++ Rdio account holders can extend their research and listening on Rdio Application
- No way for the user to indicate the suitability of links between artists.
– No recommendation tool integrated. User discovery experience is thus limited to results elected by the application.
Thanks to Discovr I discovered The Magic Sam’s Boogie
