Piki.fm Shuts Down Mobile Music Streaming Service – Team Jumps Back to Working on Turntable.fm

In not a very big surprise Piki.fm is shutting down on September 23. Piki was the side project of Turntable.fm, who itself has really struggled to gain long term traction.

Here’s the email that was sent out:

Hello,

We’re really sad to say that on September 23rd we will be shutting down Piki. We are a small team and unfortunately we don’t have the resources to continue developing and maintaining Piki. We sincerely thank you for trying Piki and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.

The team has refocused on a new version of turntable.fm, coming early October. If you’re interested in getting an email when we launch, please enter your email here http://bit.ly/14o3gdJ

We’re not going to leave you empty handed. You can download the list of all of your picks as a CSV file or make it a Spotify playlist here: https://piki.fm/exportmusic

If you have any questions please contact help@piki.fm

Thank you,
The Piki Team
