This looks very encouraging. I started following you to keep track of the progress. Any idea how far you are out from submitting the first version to Apple?

Pretty far. I'm only wrapping up UI/Interaction design.

What you got so far looks fantastic. I've been using Spotable since it's release and while it's not perfect it does get the job done.

Thanks for letting us know about it! Looking forward to more updates.

I want to clarify that this is not an official app. This is a personal project. I will keep everyone posted on the process. I don't have a name yet, but as soon as I come up with a branding, I will put up a site with updates that everyone can follow.

My day is a little crazy. Apparently my mockups drew so much attention on twitter that Spotify actually called me.

Awesome. Hopefully they hire you to kickstart an official app b/c they are sorely lacking.

I would be surprised if that happened. One thing for sure, I've been getting tons of positive feedback on the app.

Maybe if Spotify releases an app like this, I will actually pay $10 a month for the service!

Keep up the good work.

Thanks! That means a lot. I will keep everyone posted. Since I am a designer first and foremost. So far the app is in that stage. I'm talking to a few people now to make this happen.

Yay! If you beat Spotify the punch with a decent app you'll be a hero to many of us Spotify fans suffering without an iPad app. Ridiculous there isn't an official app yet.
