Music sharing site Allihoopa has announced that it is shutting down, effective Jan 17th, 2019:
Unfortunately, we can no longer afford to keep Allihoopa running. On January 17th, 2019 we will turn off Allihoopa and remove all data.
The company failed to create a sustainable business model.
The company’s closing also leaves the future of its iOS applications, Figure and Take, in limbo.
If you’ve used the site, the company has shared details on how you can downlod your music prior to Jan 17th, 2019:
We know how much work you’ve put into your music making, so we built a tool to keep your Allihoopa experience forever.
Mixtape creates an archive that includes all your listed and unlisted pieces, artwork, stats and comments that you can download, view and access on your computer.
Note: After Jan 17th, 2019, the Allihoopa service will cease to exist. The website will be taken down. The Allihoopa app will be removed from AppStore. All music files and accounts will be deleted and unavailable. You will not be able to browse, play, pick up or drop music pieces at all.
