We are thrilled to see that the Placelists application launched last week in Spotify. It is location based music discovery app or as you put it on your website a Groundbreaking Social Music App.
Placelists. Imagine a map where you can zoom in onto a beach club in Brazil and tune in to their public playlists. Or check out what kind of music people in your own neighborhood has shared. In short, the application is a mash-up between Google maps and Spotify where playlists are organized around a geographic location like a club, a monument or a festival.
We love it!
We take this as confirmation that Tunaspot are doing something very interesting. The combination of places and music intrigues people and there is a strong case to be made for brands to use location in their music branding strategy. (you proved us right). This has also been confirmed in our own analysis of our user stats that we’ve been digging into since August 2012 when we launched Tunaspot for Spotify – a location based music discovery app.
Thanks for validating our model.
We couldn´t have done it better ourselves… Or maybe we could have?
The Tunaspot Spotify app that launched in August last year got a map interface where you can attach a playlist to a location or discover what is popular in your neighborhood.
If you would like to get even more inspired for building even more awesome future versions of Placelists we warmly invite you to Malmö for a co-creation workshop and knowledge transfer session where we can help you further evolve Placelists from great to awesome.
