With over 4M downloads, the AMI Music app enables touch-less engagement with commercial jukeboxes installed in bars and restaurants across North America.
Users create an account, add funds to a virtual wallet via a card or e-payment method, select a jukebox to control, browse its library, and pay to play songs with credits from their virtual wallet.
Promoted on the jukebox or via posters and table cards (available for print), the app is typically installed by guests or employees motivated to play music. Onboarding is kept simple. The app explains its purpose, requests access to locations services, and if permitted, locates nearby jukeboxes available for control.
ACCOUNT CREATION & SIGN-IN
To allow users to gain a level of comfort and interest before committing to account creation, AMI Music allows the non-signed-in user to explore available locations and their music libraries. To easy onboarding, account creation was purposely kept simple, only requiring an email and password to get started.
Similar to inserting a dollar bill into a jukebox, AMI Music requires funds to enable song purchases on a jukebox. However, funds added can be used across multiple visits and multiple jukebox venues.
MUSIC MAIN MENU
Once a venue has been selected, its main menu populates with widgets that provide fast access to the music queue, music search capabilities, recently played music by the user, interactive advertisements, artists popular at the venue, songs trending at the venue, discounted albums, and curated playlists.
Widgets presented on the main menu all link to sub-menus that provide expanded views of the content suggested.
Song and music video purchases are conducted using the custom-made action sheets and alerts shown above.
EARNING BONUS CREDITS
Song purchases made within a single visit provide an opportunity for the user to earn bonus credits can be redeemed at any time, but only at the location where the purchases occurred. Custom-made alerts were required as was a method for informing users of locations where bonus credits were still available for use.
SEARCHING FOR MUSIC
Recent search results provide faster access to content previously searched for. Artists, songs, and albums matching the keyword entered are presented to the user. Each artist has their catalog organized via segment bars for quick browsing.
Using the bottom navigation bar, users can switch from viewing "All Music" to "My Music," a menu that allows users to organize their favorite tunes for faster selection.
Songs can be organized into custom playlists accessible via the My Music menu.
Among the benefits of using the app is the ability to perform multi-song selections, allowing the user to queue up multiple songs through a single transaction.
Accessed via an account icon positioned in the top-right of most screens, the "My Account" menu provides access to all account-related functions and settings.
