Fora is the first mobile application that provides free, instant, and unlimited access to streaming music. It follows a pay-what-you-want patronage model where users can donate now or pledge future support. Donations above the average yield a reward from the artist, and users can also allocate a percentage of their contribution to an artist-specified charity. A crowdfunding option allows artists to fundraise for individual projects and provide contributors with tiered rewards. Finally, Fora’s “note” system creates a financial incentive for users to share content: users can “note” one artist per day to be randomly shared with another user, and are rewarded with a matching percentage if the second user donates to the "noted" artist.
