Developer Apps: Roadtrip Mixtape


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 Los Angeles? Get ready for some Skrillex or Tenacious D. Passing by Toronto? Drake or Metric 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.

Developer Apps: Typing Karaoke

Screen Shot 2012-06-12 at 2.58.29 PM

Say farewell to productivity for the next half hour — this month’s featured Developer App is Typing Karaoke.

Developed by Travis Chen at the most recent Hollywood Hackday, Typing Karaoke is described as Mavis Beacon meets Guitar Hero. Pick from a selection of songs like Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” or Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” and try your best to type along to the lyrics. Make sure to warm up those digits because the faster and more accurate you are, the more points you’ll score. Are you dying to transcribe a certain tune? Follow Travis on Twitter and suggest a song.

Think you have what it takes to make the next awesome app? Then have a look at Rdio’s Developer’s Page to register for an API key. We have a Github and API Google Group to help you get started. Who knows? Your creation can be worth some money through the Rdio Affiliate Program.

Developer Apps: re/spin


We’ll now be calling our regular API feature “Developer App” — but the coolness remains the same. This month, the awesome app created with a little help from the Rdio API is re/spin.

re/spin imports your playlists from and Spotify to Rdio with just a few clicks. If you’re on, either enter your username or playlist URL to select and transfer your mixes over to Rdio. Spotify account holders will need to batch select tracks in Spotify, copy (ctrl+c or cmd+c), and paste the links into the re/spin text box to import. re/spin can help you organize your plethora of playlists to one central location on your favorite music source, Rdio.

Do you have a great idea for an awe-worthy app, or just want to learn more about the Rdio API? Visit Rdio’s Developer page. If it piques your interest, register for an API key to start building. Your creation may even earn you some cash from the Rdio Affliate Program. Need help? Visit our Github and API Google Group for sample code and libraries, or just for support.
