With Adobe Flash Player no longer supported on android devices running Jelly Bean, HTML5 has taken the throne as the king of markup languages for displaying content on mobile devices. Android tablets, smartphones as well as iPads and iPhones all will have HTML5 support going forward.
Now for those who normally buy beats online, you may want to listen to rap beats on your phone before you complete your purchase. Unfortunately, many of the beats players out there are still based in Flash. This is problematic on mobile devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, because you cannot hear, see or buy beats on your mobile phone.
Fortunately, for beat buying enthusiasts, there is hope…
Beat selling websites such as Myflashstore and Beat Stars offer a mobile platform for music producers to be able to sell beats online. This in turn gives recording artists a great way to listen and buy rap beats on the go.
How To Buy Beats on Mobile Devices
As mentioned earlier, Myflashstore.net and Beatstars.com both offer HTML5 compatible beats players where you can buy beats on your android phone, tablet, iPhone, iPod or iPad.

5 Tips For A Smooth Checkout
1. Check HTML 5 Compatiblity
To buy beats on iphone, you’ll want to be sure that the music producer you’ve selected has an HTML 5 compatible beats player on his/her website. If you can see and hear the beats for sale, while viewing the music producer’s website, then it is HTML5 compatible. If you are viewing a beat maker’s site on an Android based device running Jelly Bean or higher, you will only be able to listen and purchase the beats if they have an HTML 5 compatible player.
2. Browse, Listen To The Beats
On the webpage you will see an area in the beats player where you can browse through the music producer’s tracks. Typically, there will be a variety of music genres to choose from ranging from hip hop beats to rock beats. Select the ones you’d like to listen to and press the play button.
3. Add The Beats To Your Shopping Cart
Once you’ve decided on which beats you want to buy, add them to your online shopping cart by selecting the type of license you want. There are various types of music licenses. Be sure to read the terms and conditions of the music producer before completing your purchase.
4. Buy Beats Via Paypal
Most beat selling websites and their respective beats players process payment via Paypal. To purchase beats on your mobile device, you don’t have to have a paypal account. You may use any major bank card supported by Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American express.
