Music screensaver iteration #5 made on Cannes Music Hack Day 2014

We didn’t finish the app before Christmas but when Deezer offered to sponsor us for the Music Hack Day in Cannes, France, we jumped on the opportunity to work on the app!

Our flight got delayed and we ended up exhausted and late at the hackathon. Still, we managed to hide a few features to focus on the core: beautiful artist images. We’ll be adding them back in time.

What we noticed though is that having it as an app is too unstable. If you leave the app by searching for a song, it breaks. We might need to make it as a separate page, like Mentor.fm. The problem though is that it won’t be able to support Spotify.

We did a “welcome page” though, but it needs more work.

Deezer have been great so far and we’re eternally grateful. We’re currently working on PartySaver outside of hackathons.

We did have some fun though…

  1. i’d like the ability to use it from within iTunes since i have a large library or perhaps a google music tie in? Excited for the release!

    1. Glad you’re looking forward to it! Sign up to get a mail when we launch at PartySaver.se 🙂 iTunes and Google Play don’t support apps as far as I know. We need to be able to integrate our screensaver with the music player to get correct music data. So we’re starting with Deezer and then hopefully Spotify.
