NOTE: THIS IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR SPOTIFY. Companion For Spotify is designed to accompany the Spotify streaming music service. It automates several workflows for you. It's initial feature set is designed to help you find new music. Companion For Spotify will find albums that were added by Artists that you follow (and their related artists) since your last visit. It can also find if there were any updates to the playlists that you follow. In both cases, Companion For Spotify will import the updated songs into a playlist of your choosing. This is a great way to auto create a daily playlist of updates for your listening pleasure. The application can also generate randomized playlists for you based on the artists that you follow and the artists related to them. The newest feature examines a Spotify track and reports which of your playlists contains that track. You can easily add/remove that song from multiple playlists. Unlike other tools that generate playlists for you, Companion For Spotify only generates content from artists and playlists that you follow. Who has time to click on every artist and playlist and see what's new? Now there is no need... Companion will do it for you. IMPORTANT NOTE: This application is not a replacement for Spotify and it does not let you stream music from the Spotify library. Instead, it generates playlists for you based on your habits and configuration that you can then listen to using your Spotify player.
