What comes first, the API or the Application? This is a question that companies are grappling with as they set forth their product strategy. Many companies prefer to release their mobile applications first and if it gets popular, developers automatically start asking for theAPI. In some of these cases, a private API already exists under the covers. In recent times, we are seeing an increasing number of products that release the API first and much later, announce their mobile applications. Great examples are the Aviary API and the musiXmatch API.
We've all been there. We found a great song we love, but don't know the lyrics. Instinctively, you hit the Google search and wade through a sea of misspelled, poorly translated, out-of-date, or poorly interpretted lyrics listings. Granted, some songs come tagged with the lyrics, which is helpful, but that's not going to help the rest of your massive music collection of songs you've been singing along to. It's frustrating and it's messy, something the MusixMatch API could change.
Music is what connects all of us together. Music Lyrics are one of the most searched items on the Internet and one would expect that the Lyrics data would be accessible via one or more APIs. We list 8 Lyrics APIs in our directory but in the past this has got into trouble over copyright issues. The MusixMatch API wishes to change all of that by giving you access to 5 million officially licensed lyrics.
