Thank you. Really appreciate the transparency and it sounds like a good plan.

Are you the sole developer or are you outsourcing any aspect of this?

Your privacy policy implies that data collected would be anonymized. I’m assuming there’s data surrounding behavior and usage that clearing houses or even Spotify themselves would be interested in paying you for. This is the part that I don’t get. What is being collected, who will have access to it, and why. Don’t get me wrong, I’m fine if people collect my data, but I do expect some detail as to what’s going on behind the scenes with it.

That’s cool!

Does Spotify have this metadata (like mood and non) already and is accessible over their API, or are you obtaining that info from somewhere else and pairing it with the song?

I’m curious, what exactly are you making money off of? Having mobile apps only (no web version) makes me think you can access -very- rich data from users in and out of the app (not implying anything nefarious, it’s totally normal but I don’t think ppl realize this), but I don’t quite understand what data you’re capturing or what specifically generates revenue for you. Ya know.. free app=we are product.
