Near, far, wherever you are — this month’s Developer App is ready to DJ your next drive. Roadtrip Mixtape customizes mixes for you based on your route.
Head over to the site and plug in your start and end destinations. Roadtrip Mixtape will then create a playlist of local artists from the areas you’ll pass through according to the Google Maps directions. Driving through Sydney? Get ready for some Van She or Angus & Julia Stone. Passing by Newcastle? Boy & Bear or Silverchair may grace your speakers. Not hitting the road any time soon? Click any city on the map to see and play the most popular artists from that area.
If you think you’ve got the next big app idea, then take a look at Rdio’s Developer page and register for an API key. We even have an API Google Group and a Github page to get you going. Need another reason? Your app can earn you some cash from the Rdio Affiliate program.
