Spotify Apps

Couldn’t find a good place to find the popular none standard Spotify apps, so I build a quick mockup in 5 minutes. I discovered that there are lots of apps I’d not heard of. I will make it pretty tomorrow, I have music to listen to. 😉

Automated Spotify Playlists #music

leave a comment »

To celebrate the release of Spotify in the US I'll highlight 3 fun Spotify mashups which can be used to create playlists for Spotify.

BBCify mashes up radio listings from the BBC with Spotify to create playlists of shows, it also creates a central playlist which is updated daily with the music from the shows.

Lastify connects to last.fm and uses information from last.fm's recommendations and creates a personalised playlists with recommended artists in Spotify.

The last Spotify mashup is biblify, which is again a playlist generator for Spotify. biblify using the latest album reviews from various sources, including The Guardian, NME, Pitchfork, Uncut, Drowned In Sound, The Fly and the BBC.

Have fun listening to music!

Spotify reaches US in July #music

leave a comment »

I remember first using Spotify and needing to create an account using an UK based proxy and setting the proxy in the configuration settings. Since then the service has changed some. Ironically I only got back into Spotify when my father asked me about it – we has set up for him and he wondered why it didn’t work any more. I too had forgotten about the proxy settings. After I ran the update and set it up for him to work I went on to install it on my own laptop.

Spotify Adoption Europe

A couple of weeks earlier a colleague, who is a paid up subscriber, asked a group of colleagues to name artists we thought would not be in Spotify. Naturally having a hipster as a friend paid off and I was able to name a number of artists which Spotify did not have in its collection, a hipster colleague was also able to name a couple. In good hipster/geek fashion we ridiculed him. 😉

Between you and me I like Spotify, and lament the start up issues they have had in the US. Based on the service offered – and from the articles I’ve read in Wired and some other sources – I am positive about the possibilities it has to offer with its Freemium model.

Spotify will launch in the US sometime in July.
