Spotify Says: Everyone Needs Apps!

Posted by - 12:25 PM on 11/30/11
Spotify has introduced a platform for developers, and websites, to make apps for their music player. Looks like we'll have to figure out a way to put some AP.net news and recommendations in your Spotify player before too long.

Ugh, I can't wait until they release Spotify worldwide. Hearing stuff like this makes me so jealous that I can't use it.

Every day we log into Spotify from now on:

Welcome to AP.net on Spotify!
Today, AP recommends these artists for you:
Brand New
Taking Back Sunday (only their first album though)
The Wonder Years
and we THINK we recommend All Time Low too, but we can't decide.

I think Rdio's UI is way better. Spotify is obviously just more popular and may have just killed Rdio with this in terms of why users will use the product. I think Spotify's biggest issue besides UI is that there's no web usage

This is pretty cool, I really enjoy Spotify. Still not sure how bands make a profit though.

Beta version which supports the apps available here: http://www.spotify.com/us/download/previews/

So far, I love the apps. The ONE thing that spotify lacked IMO is music discovery and Apps seems to be perfect for that.

Oh and:

Spotify totally has artist stations... plus last.fm app further enhances artist radio.

Can't wait for our app to launch, should be available worldwide (but not really fill a function for those of you who don't speak Swedish, Danish or Norwegian...) in a week or so.
