Spotiseek now available on iPhone

News August 27th, 2011 @ 11:08

Spotiseek has been growing steadily since it first saw daylight in late 2009. As the smartphones – in particular the iPhone and Android – are growing rapidly, I figured it might be time for Spotiseek to take the step in to the mobile world as well. I keep finding myself sitting on the bus, looking to find new music for Spotify. This is why I’ve developed Spotiseek for iPhone; an easy-to-use app that gives you suggestions on new Spotify music.

Key features in Spotiseek for iPhone

The iPhone app has got the main features of the regular Spotiseek web application:

  • Discover new music similar to that of your favourite artists or what others like
  • Play tracks and show artists or albums in the Spotify app
  • Spotiseek keeps track of what music you like and don’t like

The app differs slightly from the web application:

  • Tracks are played one at a time: discover a track, listen to it and return to Spotiseek for more goodies.
  • Learn the iPhone app what kind of music you want: once you’ve played a track, it won’t show up again. And if you don’t like a particular artist (or have already discovered it before), you can just hide the artist from future searches.

Available in the App Store at only $0.99

The first version of the iPhone app contains the essentials when it comes to finding new music, but it is likely to get more good stuff added as time goes by, should you keep suggesting new, cool features.
Spotiseek for iPhone is priced at only $0.99 (the lowest price tier), so go get your copy right now and find yourself some new, awesome music! :)
As usual, your feedback is highly valued! Please drop me a line or get in touch on Twitter if you’ve got any questions or concerns.
Over and out,
Kristofer

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!

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!
