Search artists / tracks and display on User Profile

Search artists / tracks and display on User Profile

Hi team,

 

I have a social network app on IOS / Android. I want users to search through artists and songs and then select a few to display them on their profile. 

 

Wanted to check what is the best way to implement the search functions? I can think of two options. I'm not using any user information, so I think Client Credentials Flow would be OK?

 

 

Option 1: App connects to my server to Spotify API

Option 2: App connects directly to Spotify API

Would it be safe to keep the Access Token in the app?

Yes, the Client Credentials Flow would be enough.

Thanks for the reply - Which would be the better way, Option 1 or 2?

 

Or are both suitable and doesn't really matter?

 

You can just do Option 2.

Ok cool - how would I get the access token in the mobile app?
