I have problem with current music players. Most of the music on the go is listened in smart phones. These smart phones are getting bigger and bigger on display size. At the same time music is going to monthly payment mode where you can always listen all the latest music.
I'm really happy on both of the trends at their own, but these create a problem for me when put together. I would like to listen music while running and smart phones are too big to carry with. On the other smart phones are the only platform where you can get your monthly music with you
Old iPod shuffle is by far the best music device for running ever made. There's this easy clip on, it weigths nothing and it's easy to use with single clicks. Perfect for any sports and sports wear.
Here's a challenge for some hardware product company. Create a device which can hold for example 200-500 songs from Spotify or some other monthly based music service. Create it to be small enough for small pockets in running wear. Make sure there is a large enough button to change songs when it is in the pocket. And keep it simple.
Editor comment: I posted this text first on my blog (here) and then @spotifycares guided me to tell about the idea here.
I would like to see an improvement with your searching page on Roku. I would like a more predictive generated list. I am a member of one of you competitors (while on a month trial with you) and find your search to be weak compared to the MOG search.
Example: Currently if I were looking for the group Songs Ohia I would get predictive results (none of which were the group Songs Ohia) up until the letter OH (in Ohia) and then it would go blank and tell me there are no results until I type the last two letters (IA) and then the group Songs Ohia would magically appear. Now MOG will predict the artiest within 5 letters or less (even the little known groups).
Now, I used a very short artiest name for my example but if I were to use a longer more indie group name it would be even more annoying to find them.
While I decide to switch or not this will be one that I will remember. I don't want to have to type every letter of the group if I don't have to. I know this may sound petty but I assure you that the ease at which MOG allows for search is far superior...and not just on the Roku but on all my devices. Now that is not to say that MOG is a far superior service but in this case it is.
