spotify开始为移动应用提供支持

spotify commercial apps iphone android ios independent developers

The makers of Spotify-powered apps like Spotiseek can't charge for them... yet.

At a NYC MusicTechnology Meetup earlier this week, we saw Spotify developer community manager Andrew Mager demonstrate ten awesome Spotify-powered apps.

For now, all apps built on top of Spotify’s 15-million-licensed-song music catalog for the web or, as of recently, iOS are free. Spotify currently restricts developers from building commercial apps with its music, but that’s about to change.

Spotify has plans to allow developers to sell those apps or embed ads in them, offering independent app developers a way to make money when they make stuff out of Spotify.

“We’re working on a commercial terms of use,” explained Mager. “This isn’t really in the terms yet, but this is kind of where we’re headed. You should be able to charge for your app, display ads — no rev[enue] share right now. We’re considering developer input as well.”

Developers can already build apps on the Spotify platform for the web and iOS, but soon, Android smartphones and tablets will be part of the equation.

“LibSpotify for Android is coming soon as well,” added Mager.

Wait, I’m confused: Music fans get to use whatever platform they want, developers can build whatever they want, all of it is free (with ads) and legal, and musicians get paid (though some argue too little).

Is digital music starting to make sense?

spotify展示了几款基于自身服务的应用,目前并没有一个成形的开发和应用条款,开发者可以自行定价、显示广告等,也没有具体的分成计划,但是毋庸置疑地,通过这些服务听到的歌曲都是合法且spotify支付过费用的,于是,开发者开发/售卖各种很酷而且合法的应用,歌迷随意挑选自己中意的应用,艺术家得到合理的报酬,这似乎是一个win-win-win的局面,比较让人乐观
