winner of the best use of Rdio SDK at NSMeetup hackaton - San Francisco, CA

Project made one day for the NSMeetup Hackaton. I won the best use of Rdio SDK award :)


The basic idea of this project is to have a music which rhythm/BPM adapts to your pace of work: press 'Fast' or 'Faster' and the app serves you songs with a higher or lower BPM.



We retrieved songs from Rdio using their iOS SDK, requested Echonest's web services to retrieve the BPM and sorted them by BPM. I did all the iOS code on this project!
