Social app Stamped launched in November 2011 – the latest way for iPhone users to share things they like in the real world with friends, from restaurants to music.
One of many such apps, but it’s just got more interesting to the music industry with news of a group of new strategic investors in the company. They include Justin Bieber, his manager Scooter Braun, Columbia Records and Pandora CTO Tom Conrad.
The news comes as Stamped launches version 2.0 of its app, including the ability to stream song clips from iTunes and full tracks from Rdio and Spotify. The company has raised $3m so far.
It’s just the latest app investment by Bieber, who also owns a stake in video-sharing app Viddy.
