What is the history and popularity of the app?

Slicethepie was founded by David Courtier-Dutton in June of 2007. The original intent was to create a tool that would help fans discover music they love. The company maintains the same mission, but does so on a larger scale. Slicethepie has undergone three revisions over four years, but still works towards the same goal. While many users have commented that the site actually does pay out for reviews, some have found the lack of documentation or instructions is rather frustrating for new users.

What are the differences to other apps?

Slicethepie is unique because it gives fans a way to support new music and make money. Many websites give users a place to review music and music products. Most of these do not give anything in return. The user receives the satisfaction of making their opinion known, but not much else. Slicethepie gives something back by providing users with an opportunity to earn real money for their opinions on new music. Users can also influence which songs see radio play time.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Slicethepie uses a refreshing orange and black color scheme that adds style, but in a subtle way. The design is very well-organized. Users are not assaulted by graphics or banner advertisements when they arrive. The only drawback to the site is the lack of general instructions for new users. The FAQ area explains many basic concepts, but the specific steps of reviews and payments as well as any corresponding guidelines seem to be buried or nonexistent.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can click the orange “Sign Up” button found along the right side of the Slicethepie homepage to begin registration. The form on the following page asks for an email address, password, first and last name. The user must also check the terms and conditions box below the form before submitting it. A small blue Facebook logo button is available for users who prefer to sign up with their social networking account.

What does it cost to use the application?

Slicethepie welcomes all users for free. There are no subscription fees and users do not have to pay anything to join the community. The site is actually designed to let users earn money rather than pay it out. Users can post reviews and earn money for posting high quality, meaningful opinions. The application doesn’t offer much else, so charging a fee would deter most users from signing up.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Slicethepie is ideal for anyone who loves to discover new music. Users can become scouts and supply their opinions about musicians and their work. The site also pays users to create reviews, providing an added incentive for anyone who is serious about writing new music reviews. Those who love to listen to music and are knowledgeable in music genres can really appreciate what Slicethepie has to offer.
