Spotify Platform hands-on
Spotify Platform – TuneWiki, Soundrop, Moodagent apps
It's early days for Spotify apps but there's already a selection of quirkier ideas on offer. Click on the TuneWiki app when you're playing a track in Spotify and scrolling lyrics will appear but it's a work in progress as a fair few tracks we tried didn't bring up any entries.
Soundrop's Spotify app will be a nice, democratic addition to parties – especially once the apps go mobile. The app lets you create a 'room' where everyone can vote tracks up and down to play DJ.
And if you'd rather keep control yourself, Moodagent is another playlist tool that gives you moods and tempos to choose from. The control curve adds a new dimension as Moodagent will arrange your tracks to build – or bring down – the tempo. We're a big fan of starting off 'sensual' and ending up 'angry'.
