Can you upload to DistroKid on mobile? (Spoiler… no)

Can you upload and Distribute a song using DistroKid on your mobile device? iPhone, iPad or Android? The answer seems to be… no.

In this video, I take you behind the scenes as I try to release my new song using my iPad… and fail dismally.

DistroKid is a great service if you are releasing music using your desktop and laptop, and hopefully soon they will support releasing via mobile. If you’re looking for a service to release using your mobile device, check out this video about Amuse – https://youtu.be/ZwXaptqi4bQ

Can you share to iTunes/Music app on your iPhone/iPad?

Can you share your own music to the music library on your iPhone or iPad? Errr… no. No you can’t.

I’m this video I let you know why (spoiler – because Apple say so) and give a little bit of additional information about what you can do if you REALLY want your own songs in your music library. (You release them and then buy them).
