    La-La is a social network and music messaging application for iOS that uses audio instead of written words. Users communicate by sending each other audible song snippets which include music lyrics to conduct their conversations.[1]

    History[edit]

    La-La was created by Jason Hadjioannou, originally as a way to message his girlfriend in a more interesting way. In an interview with Softonic, Jason said, "[I] just thought it'd be cool if I sent her a short audible song snippet instead of writing it".[2]

    An early version of the messaging app"was developed at the beginning of July 2014 and the first La-La message to be sent via the service was a stream of the 17 second chorus of "Hello" by Lionel Richie.[2]

    Reception[edit]

    Since its summer[when?] release, La-La has been reported to have passed over 40,00 users and has been featured in technology publications including TechCrunch, Product Hunt, RTTNews and About.com.[3]

    On the official La-La blog, there are screen captures from Twitter users expressing their joy with the app: "Finally, a messenger that understands my love for music", "New favourite app: la-la lets you send song snippets", "So perfect; we all need @la_la_app".[4]
