Greetings from Navideck! This is a heads up. The team is in new offices (finally!) and has been actively working on great stuff! As promised in our last blog post the first result of our work is about to enter private beta. This means that you can be among the first who are going get their hands on it!
So what is it?
I am sure most of you have heard of Spotify™. Spotify is a music service that allows you to listen to your favorite songs on demand and guess what, it is also free. While Spotify has a mobile app for iOS and Android it suffers from a very common drawback in the app world. Like most apps Spotify is less than optimal for in-car use. Selecting songs by browsing through complicated interfaces simply does not work while driving. It can be tricky and often dangerous.
This is why we started designing Tunedeck for Spotify™. It is a mobile app, designed with the driver in mind, that allows you to login with your Spotify account and seamlessly select your music while driving.
Tunedeck for Spotify™ is the app that lets you find and select your music with ease while driving.
The process is notably simple:
- Search for something. Anything!
- Select one of the suggested Genre, Artist or Track.
- If you don't like a suggestion swipe with your finger to get a new one!
The interface has been designed with drivers in mind so any selection can be done seamlessly without sacrificing driver's focus. Spotify™ intergation means that any song you want will be at your fingertips!
Using smart touch gestures you can perform common tasks such as skipping a song totally eyes-free!
Can I get Tunedeck?
The thing is that you don't just get Tunedeck. On the contrary you help us build it the way you like it! We believe that driving distractions due to smartphone use is a rising problem and we need to do something about it. We want to design the best possible experiences for drivers and for that we need all the help we can get. We are promoting early adopters to co-creators so that we can work hand in hand and help us shape Tunedeck with your precious feedback and suggestions!
So how can I become a co-creator?
For starters you have to be an iPhone user. A Spotify Premium account is also needed. Don't worry if your don't have one because you can have 30 days for free. Then all you have to do is subscribe to our newsletter and wait for the invitation to arrive on your email. We will be sending limited invitations in a first-come first-served basis.
We are very excited for Tunedeck and all the great stuff we have been working on. Expect great things to come soon! Oh and one last thing... If you want Tundeck for Spotify™ on your Android device be sure to drop us a line on twitter. If the demand is high enough we might consider bringing Tunedeck to Android as well...
