If you haven’t heard of Fansino, then you’re missing out. The app, which aims to connect musicians with the fans who listen to them, recently won the top spot at the prestigious Mobile Premier Awards at the Mobile World Congress.

The event, which is held annually in Barcelona, is considered to be one of the most important, and impressive, accolades that can be won by a tech startup whose main market happens to be the mobile industry.

The prize is world renown, and according to The Jerusalem Post, previous winners of it include the infamous Waze, which won in 2010.

Fansino, which was started by Israeli duo Haran Yaffa and Omri Erez, helps artists to connect with their audiences through social media on a more human level. Users can get updates about new projects their favourite bands are working on, hear about concert news, and upcoming ticket sales.

In turn, the app helps artists figure out their audience, get to know the people who listen to their music, and makes getting in touch with people simple. It overcomes the challenge of connecting audience to art, and that’s something we can all get excited about.
