BOLD Music 3.0
July 16, 2021
Back in 2017, I released my first app to the App Store, BOLD Music. This was my first taste of the hobby that I would grow for years to come, and eventually, I would go to school for. Since that release in 2017, I updated it a few times for fun but have never looked at it since.
A few months ago, as I was debating my next project, I thought of this little app that I made. It hadn't been updated since 2017 and it would crash when you tried to play a song on it, but it appealed to me. I've always been a fan of music so I thought, how can I remake this app but better and more unique in design to any other music app. So, that's what I did. It's been a long journey, but I am so excited to share BOLD Music 3.0 with you guys!
Welcome back to BOLD Music! We're breathing life back into BOLD Music by reworking it from the ground up! Everything is new from the revamped design, to amazing new features, to hundreds of songs. We've completely reimagined what BOLD Music could be and we believe we have brought it to you in the best ways possible. We hope you enjoy the new BOLD Music!
