More new features to the mixtape interface

News January 14th, 2010 @ 22:01

I’ve just uploaded a new version of Spotiseek, including a few nice changes:

  • now possible to replace single mixtape tracks with a new one from another artist
  • added information messages when something’s gone wrong with the mixtape (instead of it just doing nothing)
  • some general interface improvements

More to come

More things are to come, of course, such as:

  • more refined search results excluding duplicates
  • better support for many simultaneous users
  • more interface improvements to the mixtape interface

As always, feedback is highly appreciated.

Enjoy!

Back again: Prioritize popular tracks

News January 13th, 2010 @ 12:01

There previously was a possibility to prioritize popular tracks when generating mixtapes. I had to remove it for a few days as I didn’t have enough time to implement it into the new interface.

Anyway: it’s back! You can now create mixtapes based on your favourite artists, and make sure you’ll get the most popular tracks picked by default.

Enjoy!

New and improved mixtape interface released

News January 11th, 2010 @ 09:01

The new version of the mixtape interface is now live. My main goals with the new interface is to 1) provide a stable foundation for me to keep improving and 2) make the interface easier and more powerful to manage.

What’s changed in the new version

You might notice that the layout has changed, as well as the addition of a few new features:

  • the mixtape now consists of 16 tracks by default
  • possibility to add more artists (“New artists” button on the right)
  • possibility to reload all tracks from the chosen set of artists (“Get new tracks” button on the right)
  • artists can be removed one by one

The possibility to prioritize popular tracks is temporarily disabled, due to technical reasons. I’ll be looking to restore it as soon as possible…

Also make sure to try out the Spotiseek search engine plugin, allowing you to create mixtapes on the fly by using your browser’s search input.

More feedback wanted

I will of course keep improving the service all the time and your feedback is still wanted. Please leave feedback, be it criticism, suggestions or praises. I’m all ears!
