Just released the iOS version of Discover on Demand. I love Spotify's Discover Weekly but by Wednesday, I've already listened to the whole thing. I created this iOS mini app to bring you Discover Weekly but whenever you want. Not just on Mondays.

@mai_hauran stuck on getting it to authenticate. No way to cancel and try again. Probably check that user flow out. 'Authentication Failed unknown_error Are you sure that your token swap service is set up correctly?'

@clarencewee thanks. Just got off plane. SFO! I'll check it out when as soon as I can

@mai_hauran sweet! Oh and I tried for the fifth or so time and it finally worked. Anyway to show you logs so you can identify the issue?
richard maiMaker@mai_hauran · code stuffs
@clarencewee thanks for letting me know. I'll check the sever logs to see what I can find. I have seen this before and like you experienced, it fixes itself. Pretty sure it's spotify issue since their sdk demo app was also failing at that moment.

@mai_hauran it would be great to see a little more context in the app. While the minimally pure playlist is interesting, how can I cancel? Are there any options to customise?

Sounds cool, I always regret no having a "load more" button in the discover tab, this could do the trick. Any chance to have a web version (so that it's not platform specific)?

@oelmekki Thanks for checking it out. yea web version is certainly possible, and maybe something in the future I'll work on. There is also a mac OSX version too if that works for you.

@mai_hauran Actually, I'm on android and linux. But I know I'm in minority, so that's ok ;)

Downloaded straight away! Will give my feedback later today, but the UI looks sleek. @mai_hauran Starts playing straight after launch, is there anyway to disable that? Apart from that, recommendations were great!
richard maiMaker@mai_hauran · code stuffs
@anthony_abitbol is possible. I can add a preferences or something. Next release.

Downloaded it and gave it a try. Recommendations were not bad! Are you using the Spotify recommendation API with multiple seed inputs?
richard maiMaker@mai_hauran · code stuffs
@jonathanzwhite nope. I built algo before that was released. But I'm gonna AB test that to see which one gets more saves or something. Thanks for checking it out.
