Spotify has skyrocketed to success in the last year and is the largest and fasted-growing music service of its kind. They’ve recently opened a new world of possibilities for music fans with its Spotfiy Platform that provides third-party developers the chance to build new music-based apps. These apps are supposed to integrate easily with Spotify and be accessed and shared by users via its new App Finder (available to both premium and free users).

The music service already has some partner apps from the likes of:  Billboard, Fuse, The Guardian,, Moodagent, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Songkick, Soundrop, TuneWiki and We Are Hunted, with Top10 and ShareMyPlaylists apps coming soon. The apps are built in HTML5 and are supposed to take advantage of Spotify’s vast music library, as well as the service’s integration with Facebook. Spotify mentioned that it’s open to all developers, but they’ll still manually approve submitted apps before placing them in their App Finder. Spotify believes this new addition to their service will “add many more layers of music enjoyment.”
