Deceptively Simple Looks

Disguised as a hip-looking social media app, in reality, MySound is a music discovery platform. Despite still being a prototype version, the app’s features go way beyond sharing playlists and songs. MySound offers users options to: 

follow

other music enthusiasts

like

playlists and songs

build

a fan base

check out

weekly trending playlists and songs

listen 

to new music (in Spotify or Apple Music)

Apple Music and Spotify Fans Making Friends

You’ll be surprised, but there’s no simple way to share playlists and tracks cross-service in this golden age of music streaming. Apple Music fanboys and fangirls are out of luck sharing their fav playlists with their friends on Spotify, and vice versa.

That’s precisely what MySound set out to do. The app’s founder decided it was high time to bring music lovers together to share and discover new tunes, regardless of their streaming service of choice.

Marry Spotify with Apple Music

To give MySound an intuitive and smooth flavor, we had to settle a few technical challenges:

Apple Music API + Spotify API

To make playlists from the competing music services compatible, we had to:

integrate MySound with Apple’s and Spotify’s APIs, accounting for their ways for handling music

set up a two-way conversion mechanism for playlists and songs to play in both streaming apps

find workarounds for the Apple Music API (bugs and missing data)

Complex Logic

The app is easy-to-use on the surface but relies on a rather complex, well-thought-out logic. Without it, customers wouldn’t be able to:

access deleted but already shared playlists (algorithms)

go straight to a user profile after following a link outside the app (deep linking)

listen to a playlist in the streaming service of their choice (integration with other apps)

view trending playlists and songs (algorithms)

The next time you’ll be hearing of MySound, it’s going to be the big news about a brand-new social media app, dubbed “Instagram for Music.”

Just like we flip through Instagram, mesmerized by glimpses into somebody’s life, we’ll be feeling our friends’ and fav celebs’ vibes on MySound, regardless of the music streaming service we prefer.
