As if we did not drink enough at the Vampire Hackathon (vampirehackathon.com) itself. But we built a Spotify App for ya, overnight!
Shotify (shotify.us) is a Spotify app that turns your playlist into a Power Hour mix. (Power Hour is a drinking game in which participants listen to a music mix and take a shot of beer when the song changes at the turn of every minute)
Using Shotify is simple: in Spotify, drag your playlist into the Shotify window. Press "Play," and let the power hour begin!
We developed Shotify as a minimum viable product in less than 9 hours with a lot of room for potential features, from social networking to music discovery. We'll let users organize their Power Hour mixes with tags and descriptions, view most popular or most recent mixes created, and generate Spotify playlists from those mixes.
Even for usage in sobriety, a Power Hour mix is a fast and easy way to discover new music selected by others: each song on the mix lasts no longer than 60 seconds or a custom duration of time specified by the creator. If you like the music selection, add the tracks to your collection by creating a playlist from this mix.
But Shotify does best at what it's built for. Grab a few friends, pour yourself a shot of beer, and Shotify!
