Pikup app pays back artists based on habits

Pikup is a new software tool for iPhone, iPad and Mac. Once installed, it registers what music, eBooks, videos or podcast you consume. At the end of the month it analyses your media behaviour and that of all other people using the same software tool. The tool then proposes you pay a small monthly subscription to support the arts and your contribution is split proportionally between the artists you’ve listened to.
