Tempo: Playlists for Spotify - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, apart from my Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering, I have had some extensive experience with app development, both as a personal hobby and as a freelancer.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I believe the most challenging part about developing mobile apps is convincing yourself that people would actually go and use your app which is often hard to imagine sitting in front of a less-than-perfect, incomplete project.

Gokhan Egri is a 22 year old coder from Turkey.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Spotify: Because it has allowed me to build Tempo :)

How long have you been working on this app?

1.5 months

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

To be able to easily create genre and BPM-based apps which was once covered by a very popular Spotify feature called "Spotify Running" which was then removed for some reason. Music is a vital part of both my and many people's lives and it is therefore quite rewarding to enhance your day-to-day activities with the "right" music.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Currently, no apps offer the functionality to create BPM-based playlists, let alone through an easy-to-understand interface. I think this is a good application to accommodate different activities where users might want to adapt their playlists to the natural flow of the activity.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

- A Web version of the app is available at https://tempo-playlist-app.herokuapp.com/, check it out! - With the last update, you can now add individual tracks to your Liked Songs library by double-tapping on the song. - Here is some Easter Egg exclusive to appoftheday.downloadastro.com users: In the app, there are genres which you can unlock by shaking your phone at certain times of the day. One of them is "Reggae" at 16:20 and another one if "Disney" at 10:31. Have fun discovering the others!

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Enjoy the app! And also try the Web version of the app at https://tempo-playlist-app.herokuapp.com/ !
