My Question

 

Hello,

 

I have been working on my first app that uses Spotify's wonderful API and my product is showing decent progress. I am considering getting a quota extension but I am faced with a dilemma. I think my idea is good enough that Spotify's main music app seems like it should include it. What is protecting me from posting a download link to the app, or a screen recording of the app's features and them just taking the idea for themselves.

 

Sincerely,

Ryan

Hey Ryan, help's here!

Thanks for posting here.

You can share ideas and get votes for it on the Spotify Community Ideas board, if you'd like to suggest a new feature for the Spotify app(s). Right now, it's not possible to do paid idea pitches to the folks over at Spotify. You can read more about the terms for developing apps with the Spotify API here: https://developer.spotify.com/terms/.

If you'd like to help develop the app though, I recommend taking a look at spotifyjobs.com. They're always on the lookout for great talent!

If you have any other questions, feel free to give me a shout.

Have a great day,
Hubo
